Breaking: Twitter’s board has agreed to sell shares to Elon Musk for $44 billion.
“I hope that even my worst critics remain on Twitter, because that is what free speech means,” said the richest man in the world, Elon Musk.
On April 15, 2022, Twitter board took a “poison pill” to stop Elon Musk from acquiring more shares.
The agreement however has been reached today and will mark the biggest acquisition in history of social media.
In a statement after the announcement was made official, Musk said that “free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy.” He made a pledge “to make Twitter better than ever,” “increase trust” and “unlock” the potential of the “digital town square.”
