Fuck ya.Make em reeeeeee, Elon.
Step 1 - Buy Twitter.Step 2 - Make Trump the CEO.
My guess is Elon talked with the board in preparation to join it, then realized that when in private, they were all commies who opposed his ideals of free speech
Hircus saysMy guess is Elon talked with the board in preparation to join it, then realized that when in private, they were all commies who opposed his ideals of free speechThis reminds me of when Ross Perot joined the board of GM in the early 90's with the intention of changing its cultural rot. He told them the truth and they just couldn't take it, bought him out for $750M. Now GM has about a 17% share of the market when it used to worry about having over 50% and be in violation of anti-trust 50 years ago because it made such good cars and had one "for every purse and purpose" per Alfred P. Sloan.
In many case, success and/or unearned $$ leads to idiocy.
Drew Hernandez@DrewHLive3hNone of the leftist fascists working at Twitter are afraid of being silenced and censored if @elonmusk owns TwitterThey are afraid of possibly losing the ability to silence and censor anyone they don’t likeApr 14, 2022 · 1:43 PM UTC
Oak tree@Oaktree6547282447mReplying to @DrewHLive @ezralevant @elonmuskIf Elon Musk owned Twitter in 2020? The Hunter Biden laptop story does not get suppressed. Probably changes the presidential election outcome.
As I indicated this weekend, I believe that the company should be private to go through the changes that need to be made. After the past several days of thinking this over, I have decided I want to acquire the company and take it private. I am going to send you an offer letter tonight, it will be public in the morning. Are you available to chat? [VOICE SCRIPT] 1. Best and Final:a. I am not playing the back-and-forth game.b. I have moved straight to the end.c. It's a high price and your shareholders will love it.d. If the deal doesn’t work, given that I don’t have confidence in management nor do I believe I can drive the necessary change in the public market, I would need to reconsider my position as a shareholder.i. This is not a threat, it's simply not a good investment without the changes that need to be made.ii. And those changes won't happen without taking the company private. 2. My advisors and my team are available after you get the letter to answer any questionsa. There will be more detail in our public filings. After you receive the letter and review the public filings, your team can call my family office with any questions.
He told them the truth and they just couldn't take it,
I bet he's going to sell all his shares.I bet he's already bought options to sellI don't see why people think Twitter matters as a company. They have a terrible reputation, nobody that matters go to platforms that engage in censorship, their userbase is a bunch of low grade morons, and it's a propaganda outlet.Let's see, but I bet this was just a plan to make a quick buck. Purchase the stock, give people hope the company will reform, buy options to sell, sell the stock, and profit as the stock reverts.
So much for Saint Musk:
After the official rejection of the offer comes in Twitter is probably going to dip pretty hard.
epitaph saysAfter the official rejection of the offer comes in Twitter is probably going to dip pretty hard.I bet he has contingencies for this. Maybe he expects blackrock et.al. to reject, in which case he will use his moment in the extra large spotlight to point out their broad media and communications control.
The guys (foreigners) who run google and Twitter don’t give a shit about your free speech nor privacy rights.Neither does that twerp Zuckerberg.A pox on all of them.
Truth, that is the main problem of government and governmental corporations. They don't like. They will go to extreme extent to undermine truth because truth will impact their money and power.

They will go to extreme extent to undermine truth because truth will impact their money and power. This is exactly why we have the First Amendment.Unfortunately, it covers only lawmaking by the government, not quasi-monopolies and other corporations squashing free speech.
