Months after launching, the Truth Social has announced and implemented its first round of major feature change to the short-form social media platform meant to rival Twitter. 

Former congressman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) and current Trump Media & Technology Group CEO spoke with John Solomon on his podcast about the changes. 

The first and potentially most significant change to the platform is something Nunes called the "horizontal scroll" feature, which will allow users to select a timeline function that shows them recent posts by their favorite accounts and the ones they interact with most recently, as opposed to a straightforward chronological presentation. 

The horizontal scroll "allows you to see the people that you interact with the most and who have posted and who have posted recently, and that'll be improved over time," Nunes said on the most recent episode of the "John Solomon Reports" podcast.

"So it'll make it really easy to find those people you interact with the most," He added that he believes it will be a "game changer in terms of the ease to navigate the platform."

Truth, founded by former President Donald Trump in the wake of his exit from Washington and ban from Twitter and Facebook, has marketed itself as a user-friendly space that shies away from the concepts of censorship and shadow-banning that are controversially implemented by other popular social media sites.

As Nunes put it, Truth is hoping to encourage discourse and creativity from voices that otherwise might be "sent to the ghetto of the internet."

The other major change coming to Truth Social is that videos posted to the platform will no longer have a two-minute cap. Instead, they will be able to run up to 10 minutes, which means creators and those wishing to share clips of themselves will no longer have to post from a third-party video site (i.e., Rumble) in order to share an embedded video that runs longer than 120 seconds.
