Stocks of Digital World Acquisition (DWAC), the blank-check company merging with TMTG (Trump Media & Technology Group), surged 10% Tuesday as Truth Social, the former President’s Donald Trump's social media platform, has gone live. 

DWAC shares jumped 26% to $106.44 and were on track to open at levels last seen in October, days after DWAC announced a deal to publicly list TMTG, the venture behind Truth Social. Other stocks linked to Trump also advanced. Phunware, hired by Donald Trump's 2020 Presidential re-election campaign to build a phone app, climbed 17.9%.

On Sunday it was launched and Truth Social was the top free available app on Apple's app store

Trump was barred by Youtube, Facebook (Meta Platforms) and his then-favorite Twitter for his alleged role in January 6, 2021, Capitol riot. Since then, he has been exploring ways to restore his once-sizable social media presence. The Official Twitter account of Trump War Room is still active on Twitter, and all Trump's Updates were provided by Dan Scavino from time to time. Right now Donald Trump is active on Rumble, all his MAGA and Save America Rally are covered on this platform. In the case of CF Acquisition Corp VI, there have been reports of the video platform merging with Rumble.

According to media reports, due to massive responses from the Trump Supporters, some people reported being unable to create an account or received error messages when trying to do so. Others were prompted to join a waitlist.

Users are getting messages like this "Due to massive demand, we have placed you on our waitlist. We love you, and you're not just a number to us. But your waitlist number is below," a message greeted users after they created an account. 

Truth Social, which counts former President Donald J. Trump as its chairman and former Rep. Devin Nunes as CEO of Truth Social, soared to the No. 1 downloaded app on Apple's app store as of Tuesday morning. But that strong demand led to reports of countless error messages and more than 600,000 interested users being wait-listed.

Truth Social was originally scheduled for a launch sometime in February on President Day 2022, but expectations were pushed back after CEO Devin Nunes said the app would be fully operational by the end of March. Monday's release of the app was no doubt a pleasant surprise to Digital World investors. Shares of DWAC soared as much 62% to $137 on Tuesday.

Truth Social will represent the voice of America's conservative base who were continuously censored by Big Tech companies. Truth Social also planning to merge with Rumble, a Canadian video-sharing platform with a conservative bent, surged earlier this month after it attempted to poach the podcast host Joe Rogan away from Spotify with a $100 million offer.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) fired at Elon Musk after she claimed her Twitter notifications were not working.  In an Instagram story posted on Wednesday, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed that her Twitter notifications were no longer working after she criticized Elon Musk.

Musk posted a tweet yesterday with a photo of a sweatshirt sold on the New York Democrats' website for 58 dollars. AOC fired back, saying that her workers are in a union and make a living wage, and proceeds go to, quote, "community investments" like tutoring kids.

President Joe Biden misspoke again at a rally in South Florida on Tuesday. During his remarks, President Joe Biden accidentally said that inflation was caused by quoting the war in Iraq. The president then corrected himself and said it was Ukraine, but I didn't study was quote thinking of Iraq because that's where my son died.

Biden has said he believes exposures to burn pitoxins may have contributed to the cancer that claimed beau's life. He said: “They talk about inflation… inflation is a worldwide

Trump Mocks DeSantis During Pennsylvania Rally: 'Ron DeSanctimonious'

Photo "Donald Trump" by  Dan Scavino Former US President Donald Trump mocked Ron DeSantis as "Ron DeSanctimonious" at a Latrobe rally yesterday in Pennsylvania. Watch out for his complete reaction below. Trump, while addressing his rally, said these lines: Today I have the highest poll numbers I've ever had, perhaps partly because the Democrats are so severely running our country and people want our tremendous success of no inflation, energy independence, and military victory (remember, I defeated ISIS one hundred percent). Remember Al-Baghdadi and so many other things, including crime? We had it weighed down. But we have the best poll numbers; where are they putting them up on the screen? I think you should put them up and look at them. We are winning big, big, big in the Republican Party for the nomination like nobody's ever seen before. Let's say there is Trump at 71, Ron DeSanctimonious at 10 percent, and Mike Pence at seven. Targeting forme

DeSantis Issues Warning To Doctors Performing Gender Affirming Surgery On Minors

  Photo credit: Gage Skidmore/CC BY-SA 2.0,  via Flickr At a campaign event yesterday, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) slammed doctors who perform gender confirmation surgeries on minors. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continued his campaign for re-election on Wednesday, focusing on cultural and war issues. DeSantis has doubled down on his controversial stance on gender-affirming care for minors; he decried the teaching of so-called gender theory in public schools. A topic that has earned him accusations of transphobia and bigotry by many LGBTQ Americans and their allies DeSantis has celebrated his state's commitment to take doctors' medical licenses if they performed gender-firming surgeries on minors as well. The issue has become a hot topic among Republican politicians, who believe it can help them win votes among parents wary of social change. This sentence is currently leading his Democratic challenger Charlie Crist by double digits. DeSantis mentioned in his speech that:
