Donald Trump has said he wouldn't return to Elon Musk-owned Twitter even if offered and would focus on Truth Social.

Former US President Donald Trump’s platform “Truth Social” is topping the charts on the Apple Store leaving behind popular social media giants Twitter and TikTok. This news was shared surprisingly by Elon Musk, who is the new owner of Twitter – a microblogging site that has been placed second on the list.

“Truth Social is currently beating Twitter & TikTok on the Apple Store,” Musk, 50, tweeted with a screenshot of the list.


Twitter is at number 2, followed by LiveIn, BeReal, and TikTok at number 5. These rankings are for today, and may likely change soon.
