Digital World Acquisition (NASDAQ:DWAC) stock is up on Thursday as investors celebrate regulators approving its planned special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) merger with Trump Media & Technology Group.

With this approval, Digital World Acquisition can move forward with plans to act as a vehicle to take Trump Media & Technology Group public. It intends to announce a date for a shareholder meeting in the next couple of days to have them vote on the SPAC merger.

Digital World Acquisition has been seeking to take Trump Media & Technology Group public since October 2021 but regulator delays have kept it from doing so. The merger plan came about when former President Donald Trump launched Truth Social as an alternative social media platform following his time in office.

Trump Media & Technology Group CEO Devin Nunes said the following about the merger update:

“Truth Social was created to serve as a safe harbor for free expression and to give people their voices back. Moving forward, we aim to accelerate our work to build a free speech highway outside the stifling stranglehold of Big Tech.”
