    The Spin

    Pro-Trump narrative

    The app is a champion of free speech and a conservative alternative to social media sites that have endlessly abused their power by suppressing free speech.

    Left narrative

    Truth Social is a plagiarized Twitter knock-off riddled with technical problems. The platform has notably prohibited free speech when it comes to criticizing its founder.
