Former President Donald Trump's social media platform, Truth Social, officially launched Sunday night and was listed as the top free app in Apple's Store by early Monday.
Trump had been working to develop his own social media site after he was banned from Twitter and Facebook last year.
The platform's website describes it as "America's 'Big Tent,'" a social media platform that encourages an open, free, and honest global conversation without discriminating against political ideology."
Reuters reports that the demand to download the app was so high that some users had problems registering for an account or were added to a waitlist with a message: "Due to massive demand, we have placed you on our waitlist."
Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG), the venture behind Truth Social, is led by the former California Republican U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes.
"This week we will begin to roll out on the Apple App Store. That's going to be awesome because we're going to get so many more people that are going to be on the platform," Nunes said Sunday on Fox News' "Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo."
