Elon Musk buys Twitter for $44 Billion

SAN FRANCISCO, April 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Twitter, Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by an entity wholly owned by Elon Musk, for $54.20 per share in cash in a transaction valued at approximately $44 billion. Upon completion of the transaction, Twitter will become a privately held company.

Mr. Musk has secured $25.5 billion of fully committed debt and margin loan financing and is providing an approximately $21.0 billion equity commitment. There are no financing conditions to the closing of the transaction.
So, I guess we can expect Trump to make a triumphant Twitter return.

What's that clapping sound?

Oh wait, it's just the sound of Elon Musk's weird cultists furiously masturbating in unison.

Why does it matter that it's transferred ownership from one lot of American-based weirdos to another one?

As ever, I agree with GB - they currently allow the Taliban (and plenty of other vile scumbags) so I don't see that readmitting Trump would be a biggie.

Not sure he personally bought twitter as it’s probably the most leveraged deal ever done with him committing nothing of his own wealth

It's terrible that a wide range of people are going to be allowed to express viewpoints on twitter. It does not belong in a democracy and I can well understand why some here are foaming.

Any tweets containing phrases like "the car is on fire" "the moon has set the car on fire" "the monkeys are in pain/on fire" "the car, the moon and the monkey are forming a union" will automatically be banned.

Don't see much changing, if he can get rid of the bots then he's done a good job but the moderation is poor, its too much of a big job for humans to do it and AI is going to ballls it up.

Time for something to replace twitter really its been dominant longer than facebook or myspace were. Instagram is owned by meta so unlikely to please those dissatisfied with Zuckerberg and TikTok's format is such that I'm surprised it hasn't been flooded with spam/scammers yet, surely a matter of time.

Maybe this will accelerate things.

Always funny watching pro censorship Americans panic when they realise someone they hate is holding the red felt tip pen.

It must be nice to have proper 'f**k you' money. Although if I did, I wouldn't spend it on twitter. I'd buy the weed off of Bloom, and turn the Amex into a park and ride for Selhurst.

My pet hate is someone typing “um” or “err” at the beginning of a reply… c’mon funky… you’re better than that

If I had $44bn of f*ck off money, I'd buy/build a shitload of accomodation to house the homeless and fund the starting of a load of small businesses to help people without an income to rejoin the people who have jobs and money.

I'd still have plenty of money to buy Sainsbury's PLC, close the Selhurst Park store, build a new stadium then re-sell the company again.

The new stadium would be state-of-the-art but because it's Palace, we'll get relegated and have the best stadium in the Championship.

How is Elon the richest man on earth? All be seems to have done is well a few crappy cars that have a tendency to catch fire, shot some old celebrities into space and bought a load of crypto currency.

Feels like the richest man & his new clothes.

He has done well, sold the PayPal and that is where he made his money and with Tesla he kinda changed a lot of things by going solar.

Battery technology, innit. The cars are not important.
