SPAC Daily: Will the TWTR News Change DWAC’s Chances?

by | Oct 4, 2022

Today Elon Musk appears (although who knows with him) to have dropped his fight and will instead move forward with his original deal to take Twitter (TWTR) private at $54.20 / share. Other considerations aside, will this news have any affect on the closing proposition for DWAC + Trump Media & Telecom, the group behind the former President’s TRUTH Social Platform.

Trump has been famously (or infamously) banned from Twitter for some time, but perhaps he’d be more apt to rejoin the platform if someone like Elon were at the helm? DWAC common stock dropped over 5% today and its warrants continued to tumble another 2% and stand at just $3.86 now. Get your popcorn.
