Trump Media and Technology Group CEO Devin Nunes on Friday confirmed to Just the News that Truth Social has cleared the backlog of accounts waiting to use to the platform and is now open to millions of users.
The nascent Truth Social, which the Trump Media and Technology Group owns, had limited new arrivals to its system during an extended beta testing period, creating a significant wait list of potential users. The company long prepared a migration to the Rumble cloud to eliminate that backlog.
Nunes spoke to "Just the News - Not Noise" just hours earlier and predicted the development.
"As we get through rush hour, we continue to monitor. And look, I think, just here in the next two hours or so we're going to be able to get rid of this wait list, you know, maybe tomorrow morning, but it's coming quickly," he told host John Solomon and co-host Amanda Head.
Truth Social told Just the News earlier on Friday that the company had completed the move to a new cloud system run by Rumble which would allow it to onboard millions of new users. Rumble, for its part, has grown rapidly as a free speech based alternative to YouTube.
"We have a basically, we opened the new cloud the rumble cloud. Yesterday, early in the morning, it went off flawlessly, thankfully," Nunes said.
"And it's really you've got half of America should be concerned about being canceled by these crazy woke companies," Nunes added, stressing the growth potential of the platform due to other platforms' censorship.
The former California representative was optimistic that the partnership between Truth Social and Rumble would be a major step in combating censorship from Big Tech.
"Now, one thing that you guys probably know is Real America's Voice because you actually are also on Rumble, as you said in the opening, you know, that takes a lot of servers, a lot of equipment, right?" he asked.
"So, because of that, you know, they really have to be in this in this business of having data centers. And creating clouds. So it's, it's really their next big role," Nunes continued. "And if you look at it, a lot of these companies like like, they almost all have clouds, in addition to they offer cloud services like Amazon, right?"
"So it's a great business opportunity for rumble. And we're just proud to be their first big client," he concluded.
