The beta site for former President Donald Trump's new social media network, called TRUTH Social, was hacked just hours after it was announced. 

Several tech reporters found the site, entered it and created fake profiles for Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence.  

The hack occurred within two hours of Trump's Wednesday night announcement that TRUTH Social would be launched in early 2022.

The site's public URL was soon taken offline, according to the Daily Dot's Mikael Thalen, who created a fake Trump profile.   

The Washington Post's tech reporter Drew Harwell's fake Pence account was banned within an hour. 

Additionally, pranksters made a fake Trump account and used it to post the meme image of 'pig poop balls,' according to Harwell.   

The new Trump Media & Technology Group said it will create a rival social network to the current 'liberal media consortium' and 'fight back against the 'Big Tech' companies of Silicon Valley, which have used their unilateral power to silence opposing voices in America.' 

Trump, who will serve as TMTG's chairman, said, 'I created TRUTH Social and TMTG to stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech. We live in a world where the Taliban has a huge presence on Twitter, yet your favorite American President has been silenced. 

'This is unacceptable. I am excited to send out my first TRUTH on TRUTH Social very soon. TMTG was founded with a mission to give a voice to all. I'm excited to soon begin sharing my thoughts on TRUTH Social and to fight back against Big Tech. Everyone asks me why doesn't someone stand up to Big Tech? Well, we will be soon!'
