Donald Trump’s “Truth Social” site launches with a resounding “Oops!”

After receiving a solicitation from the Republican Party to join Donald Trump’s “Truth Social” social network, I decided to try it out.

Although the solicitation says it is “Live,” the sign-in page asks you to join a waiting list.

Since you have to agree to the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, I wanted to read them. Here’s what you get when you click on those links (both the same screen)

And here’s what you get when you put your name in and click “Sign up” .

Go ahead. Try it yourself.

Should I feel bad for all those people who invested in Trump’s new media company?

  1. Now I get “Error 1020” from the site – or rather, from Cloudflare who is providing protection and caching for the site.

    I wonder if they have already been DDOS’ed?

  2. I tried the subscribe from South Africa. I got this:

    Access denied

  3. Apparently 1-1/2 BILLION people were on the App Store looking at it. 1.5 billion didn’t download but even a small percentage would overwhelm any system. Didn’t anticipate that kind of demand.
