Swider articulated, “With many of our headwinds behind us, we look forward to working with TMTG and our dedicated team to close this merger.” He further highlighted the personal significance of the moment, coinciding with his one-year anniversary as CEO, and reaffirmed the commitment to the strategic direction set forth.

Echoing Swider’s sentiments, TMTG CEO Devin Nunes underscored the collaborative efforts driving the merger, portraying it as a testament to the unwavering dedication of both entities and their stakeholders. Nunes emphasized the transformative potential of the merger, especially in the realm of safeguarding free expression on the internet, positioning TMTG as a beacon against the encroachment of censorship and suppression by major tech entities.

The approval of the merger marks not only a significant corporate milestone but also signals the beginning of a new chapter in the digital landscape, poised to reshape the dynamics of online discourse and engagement. As Digital World and TMTG embark on this transformative journey, the collective vision for innovation and empowerment remains steadfast, setting the stage for future endeavors and advancements in the digital world.
