A Google spokesperson has revealed that former President Donald Trump’s social media platform Truth Social has been kept from Android devices because the platform allegedly lacks "effective" content moderation.
According to The Hill, the spokesperson said that Truth lacks the content moderation needed to meet Google Play’s terms of service.
"On August 19 we notified Truth Social of several violations of standard policies in their current app submission and reiterated that having effective systems for moderating user-generated content is a condition of our terms of service for any app to go live on Google Play," the spokesperson said.
Google is reportedly particularly concerned about violations of its policies prohibiting content with physical threats and incitements to violence.
The spokesperson added that Truth Social has acknowledged the feedback, and is currently working on addressing the issue.
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
