The paint’s still figuratively wet on Truth Social, Donald Trump’s new social network that he announced last night as a way to “fight back against the ‘Big Tech’ companies of Silicon Valley.” But the site already appears to be having a litany of problems.
For example, supposedly the site doesn’t launch until the first quarter of 2022, but last night, hackers discovered a beta version on which they proceeded to register both “donaldtrump” and “mikepence,” two usernames the site happily granted them.
Was just able to setup an account using the handle @donaldtrump on 'Truth Social,' former President Donald Trump's new social media website.
Although the site is not officially open, a URL was discovered allowing users to sign up anyway. pic.twitter.com/MRMQzjNhma
