The Moment of Truth Social Has Arrived

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2022

Truth Social began a staged launch on Monday that is expected to take weeks to complete. Devin Nunes, who’s running the operation as CEO, said in a truth posted on the platform that they intend to continue bringing groups of Apple App Store users through the rest of the week as they work out bugs and so on. Here’s his truth:

Posts on the platform are “Truths”

As I expected, this is a staged process, so be patient. They’re bringing in Apple IOS customers first, and I suspect they will move to Android, and then probably to simple browser-based access for everybody else. Building out a system like this takes time, and careful planning, but deploying it and turning it on for the first time can be a taxing process. You can test all you like in a pristine environment with a handful of users, but until you start to put it under load, the real issues won’t show themselves.

By bringing on users in groups, it gives them time to whack-a-mole through any issues and then to bring on more and more users until it’s running wide-open. I’ve been in the business of deploying complex systems for a long time now, and I can tell you that rushing it causes more problems than stepping through it methodically, and in a controlled fashion.  That’s how to have a successful deployment, rather than getting a giant black eye for turning it on all at once, throwing open the digital doors, and then seeing it all crash.  Smart first move by Truthsocial.

New users should expect to wait, and as the week goes on, the number of users is likely to soar.
