Elon Musk is promising more freedom and less pussy-like censorship on Twitter, so if @realDoanldTrump is reinstated, would that mean that his interest in Truth Social is moot? Even still, Truth Social has been plagued by bad reviews and a horrible marketing campaign, and still, Devin Nunes who resigned his powerful seat to run it is insisting it is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

The Truth is, Nunes is under fire - from Trump, from the investors, and from Republicans in his own party who are angry he gave up his influential seat in Congress for a fat paycheck running a yet to be seen empire, in fact, most people have given up on Truth - and with Musk's Twitter ties now seen as solving the censorship problem, many are asking if it is even relevant to compete with it.

Nunes thinks so. The successful and prominent congressman who left office at the peak of his influence to become the CEO of the Trump Media & Technology Group, talked up his nascent app while downplaying the significance of billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk buying the largest stake in Twitter and joining its board.

Running former President Donald Trump’s social network, Nunes promises big things at a time when Truth Social appears to be in dire straits.

Nunes noted on Tuesday that Musk “supposedly” wants to “reopen free speech” on Twitter but knocked the Tesla CEO for “going to a platform that is full of thousands of people that clearly don’t like Republicans and are very hardcore Left-wing.”

The interview, which took place on the Just The News — Not Noise show with hosts John Solomon and Amanda Head, commenced after Twitter reported that there are no plans to reinstate Trump, who was banned following the Capitol riot, even as Musk tweeted that he is eager to work with the company to “make significant improvements” in the coming months.

Nunes pledged that Truth Social would be “the home” for all those barred from Twitter. “I don’t foresee much changing at Twitter,” he said, adding that what people are witnessing now is “nice window dressing” to cover for “social media tech tyrants.”

Truth Social has been beset by troubling reports recently, including a buddy rollout and revelations that multiple executives have quit, investors are pulling out, and sign-ups have dropped by a whopping 93% since going live on Presidents’ Day. Trump himself has yet to post more than once on the social network since its launch. Access has also been limited by its exclusivity to the Apple App Store.

Nunes refrained from addressing any of the hardships Truth Social may be facing — though he did insist the app is “already getting massive engagement by the users that we’ve let on so far” — and he spoke optimistically about what is ahead.

“I think quickly here, we’re moving faster and faster towards being able to bring everybody on the platform, and then also we’re going to have the web application open soon. And in addition to that, I think we’re making some progress possibly on the Google Play store. We’ll see. There could be new news with that soon,” he stated.

Recently, Substack, an online publishing platform for writers, announced Tuesday it is seeking to hire a data analyst and several product managers and systems engineers, among other positions. But Twitter employees thinking about quitting their jobs “because [they’re] worried about Elon Musk pushing for less regulated speech” were told “do not come work here” by Vice President of Communications Lulu Cheng Meservey.
