According to Google, the platform is in violation of its rules against posting anything that makes physical threats or incites violence. Android users will find it challenging to download the app as a result of the change. Truth Social’s CEO Devin Nunes has previously referred to Google as a “monopoly.” In spite of numerous issues, Truth Social debuted in February on the Apple App Store.
However, Google Play, where the great majority of apps are downloaded on Android smartphones, does not have the app. The CEO of Truth Social stated last week that it was “up to the Google Play Store” to decide if the app will be made available. However, Google claims that it is up to Truth Social to follow its guidelines. Google warned Truth Social of a number of infractions of standard norms on August 19, a Google spokesman told the AMC. For any app to launch on Google Play, “having efficient methods for regulating user-generated content is a condition of our terms of service,” they noted. Truth Social did not reply to the AMC’s request for comment, while Google claims to have given advise on how to address the issues.
Many people refer to Truth Social as a “free speech” platform.
However, Apple and Google must approve the app before it can be downloaded on the vast majority of phones in use worldwide.
Truth Social is far from being a place of unrestricted free expression; in fact, the platform places several restrictions on what you are allowed to say.
In truth, Truth Social’s Terms of Service contain a comprehensive list of what can and cannot be posted.
Former President Trump uses the platform, which he developed, to post on social media. Following the brawl at the US Capitol last year, Mr. Trump was banned from Twitter and Facebook.
