Or so everyone assumed. It turns out even that has turned out to be a significant bust for Reality Social. According to Fox News, the verified @FoxNews account on Trump’s social network does not belong to the firm.

The @FoxNews account on Reality Social was established on March 31, 2022, in accordance to its Real truth Social profile website page. It can be unclear when the account was confirmed, but it is presently. Even so, just days in the past, TMTG CEO Devin Nunes posted about the @FoxNews account on Real truth Social, seemingly welcoming the corporation to the system.

Though that “reality” from Nunes failed to automatically warrant any red flags at the time, in light of Fox News now denying its on the platform, the wording does feel odd. In his post, Nunes especially suggests that the RSS feed for Fox News is now on Reality Social. The RSS feed is just an aggregate of the latest articles or blog posts on FoxNews.com, which are currently being pulled quickly into the @FoxNews Truth Social feed.¬†

This isn’t out of the common for Real truth Social. The firm has established up a quantity of similar RSS feed-model accounts. For example, there is an @NFL account that is not officially operate by the National Football League, which merely posts automatic updates with the newest ESPN.com soccer information. But, Fact Social isn’t going to hide that individuals aren’t formal accounts. In fact, these automated unofficial accounts are labeled as “BOT” on the platform. When tapping on that BOT label, a prompt describes to end users that these are RSS-powered accounts that have no affiliation with the group they represent. These BOT accounts are not confirmed on Truth Social.

At the time of publishing, the @FoxNews Truth Social account is verified and does not have the BOT label.

This fumble was not a finish decline nevertheless. Buyers scored a victory, at minimum briefly. The share selling price rose in the publicly traded shell firm, Digital Earth Acquisition (DWAC), when it seemed Fact Social announced Fox News experienced joined the system. TMTG merged with DWAC so it could trade on the inventory current market.

Mashable has achieved out to Fact Social for remark. We will update this write-up when we listen to back.
