May 20 (Reuters) - Trump Media and Technology Group , the operator of the social media app Truth Social, saw a wider loss in the first quarter due to certain non-cash expenses it incurred prior to closing its merger with a blank-check company.

Net loss for the three months ended March 31 was $327.6 million, the company said on Monday, compared to $210,300 the year before. (Reporting by Niket Nishant in Bengaluru; Editing by Alan Barona)
