Ex – US President Trump’s Truth Social Media App Hacked Within Hours of Announcement

 

Controversial former US President Donald Trump’s new Truth social media platform was reportedly hacked within hours of its announcement.

Trump Media & Technology Group, and its “Truth Social” announced the app on Wednesday.

The “Truth Social” app will begin a beta launch for “invited guests” in November, with a nationwide rollout planned for early 2022, according to a press release, obtained by Per Second News in Washington.

In a twist, Drew Harwell, a tech reporter for the Washington Post, disclosed that people were able to sign up to create accounts using a publicly available link on the Truth Social app.

“I literally just registered ‘mikepence.’ The site hasn’t even launched yet and it’s already this vulnerable,” Harwell said in a tweet. In a subsequent tweet, he revealed that account had been suspended.

In another series of tweet, Harwell said it appeared the “donaldjtrump” account on Truth Social had been hacked. A screenshot Harwell shared showed the pinned post on the account was of a defecating animal.
