An Apple App Store listing reveals that former President Donald Trump’s new media venture plans to launch its social media app Truth Social on Feb. 21.

TRUTH Social is available for pre-order before going live on the U.S. Presidents’ Day holiday, Reuters reports.

TRUTH Social is the Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) alternative to Twitter.

Demo photos reveals the app offers features to follow other people and trending topics, just like Twitter.

TRUTH Social’s “tweets” will be called “truth”.

The app was born as a result of Facebook and Twitter’s ban on Trump for encouraging his supporters to participate in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Reuters reports that the app launch is expected to be the first of three stages in TMTG’s development.

The second would be a subscription video-on-demand service called TMTG+ with entertainment, news and podcasts, according to the company website.

TMTG is valued at $5.3 billion based on the stock price of Digital World Acquisition Corp.

TMTG agreed in October to merge with the blank-check firm at a valuation of $875 million.
