Donald Trump’s social media company releases financials – shares plummet

On Easter Monday, Truth Social, the social media platform owned by Trump Media & Technology Group, released its first earnings report after going public. The company reported a net loss of $50.5 million in 2022, compared to a net loss of $58.2 million in the previous year. Despite these losses, analysts believe that Trump Media may not pose a real challenge to larger social media platforms like X, Instagram, or Tiktok.

Trump Media’s revenue last year was just $4.1 million, which is significantly less than Reddit’s $800 million in revenue. In the fourth quarter of last year, Trump Media’s revenue dropped to less than a million dollars, indicating a significant decline from the previous quarter. While Truth Social has not disclosed its number of active users, it has 8.9 million accounts created on the platform.

Despite these challenges, analysts believe that Trump Media may face difficulties in competing with established social media giants due to its financial struggles and lack of a clear path to profitability. However, despite the sharp decline in stock price following the release of the earnings report, Truth Social’s market value remains over six billion dollars.
