Devin Nunes, the CEO of Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG), spoke with RSBN on Friday during Texas’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and teased Truth Social’s newest features and upgrades.

Truth Social has become a towering competitive figure in the social media realm, providing a free speech alternative to Big Tech sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

“We’re about halfway through all the features that we want to build out this year,” Nunes said. “So, features will just continue to roll out as we build.”

He added, “If you’re on Truth Social now, you know we have a spot there for direct messaging. So…we’re beta testing it now. And like I tell everybody, we’re going to roll out new features when we’re ready, on our own timeline, so that we’re not beholden to tech tyrants to shut us down.”

Nunes noted that each new feature on Truth Social is built “block by block by block” to ensure that the platform remains efficient.  

When asked whether or not President Trump would be using Truth Social as a place to potentially announce his decision on running for president again in 2024, Nunes affably shared that he did not know.

“There’s nothing more important in this country than our ability to communicate with one another,” Nunes explained. He also noted that while Truth Social would love to have President Trump announce a potential 2024 White House bid on the platform, that decision would be left up to the president himself.

Earlier this week, Truth Social announced that it would be expanding its reach for users with Android phones by being available for pre-order in the Google Play store, per RSBN.
