Trump Media & Technology Group CEO Devin Nunes said his company is going public while Truth Social is expanding to a web-based platform.

An SEC filing Monday showed that Digital World Acquisition Corp is merging with Donald Trump's media company to take it public with the caveat that the former president must wait 6 hours before posting on another social media site such as Twitter.

Nunes told "Just the News – Not Noise" on Monday that the public filing comes as Truth Social started beta tests of a web browser version.

"You're going to be able to get Truth pretty soon on any device that you have," Nunes said. "Within days here, we're going to actually take it off of beta and open it up to the public."

Former President Trump has 2.8 million followers on Truth Social. Nunes noted that the platform does not have any bots. 

"The big story is that we're showing with real people, real Americans," he observed, pointing to the platform's high engagement.

Truth Social developers hope to take "some of the best features of Twitter, Instagram, TikTok [and] Facebook" to create a reliable platform for the American public and eventually for the whole world, Nunes said.

Shortly after launching, Truth Social rocketed to the top of the iOS app store. The platform has been expanding rapidly and joined the Rumble cloud last month to make it easier to onboard millions of users quickly.
