Former US President Donald Trump’s recently launched app Truth Social has reportedly banned a user for attempting to create an account called @DevinNunesCow, despite Trump’s positioning of the social network as a bulwark against censorship.
The account’s name was a reference to Trump Media and Technology Group CEO and former US Representative Devin Nunes. It seemed to be inspired by Parody of the @DevinCow Twitter accountwho takes on the role of a cow owned by the politician, a former dairy farmer.
Web developer and internet personality Matt Ortega tweeted on Tuesday after trying to create the account on Truth Social, he received an email from the platform saying the account was permanently banned.
Many users of the app, which debuted on the Apple Store on Sunday night and hit #1 on the top chart on Monday, reported technical problems. That includes Ortega, who told it Business Insider that Truth Social put him on a waiting list after encountering multiple server errors.
“I was never able to log in, so I had to believe that the account was banned just because the username mocked the media company’s CEO with a well-known meme,” Ortega told Business Insider.
The email Ortega received from Truth Social says the account was suspended for “violation of community guidelines,” though it’s unclear which policy Ortega was presumed injured. the Trump media and technology group The Terms of Service do not allow any person to “in our opinion disparage, defile or otherwise harm us and/or the Website”.
Trump Media and Technology Group did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
