    Elon Musk struck a deal on Monday to buy Twitter for roughly $44 billion, in a victory by the world’s richest man to take over the influential social network frequented by world leaders, celebrities and cultural trendsetters.

    Twitter agreed to sell itself to Mr. Musk for $54.20 a share, a 38 percent premium over the company’s share price this month before he revealed he was the firm’s single largest shareholder. It would be the largest deal to take a company private — something Mr. Musk has said he will do with Twitter — in at least two decades, according to data compiled by Dealogic.

    “Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Mr. Musk said in a statement announcing the deal. “Twitter has tremendous potential — I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”

    The deal, which has been unanimously approved by Twitter’s board, is expected to close this year, subject to a vote of Twitter shareholders and certain regulatory approvals.

    The blockbuster agreement caps what had seemed an improbable attempt by the famously mercurial Mr. Musk, 50, to buy the social media company — and immediately raises questions about what he will do with the platform and how his actions will affect online speech globally.




    If Musk does what he claims he wants to do it will be a big improvement and good for free speech.
     
    Yeah, I call it Twitter for as long as it's around.
    I set up the old bird logo on my phone and iPad. I saw how to do that in a post some where, and even I could replace the stupid as shirt “X” logo with the better blue bird one. Sometimes it’s the small things in life that give you satisfaction.
     
    I can't speak for Musk, but it was worth it to dismantle the left's censorship apparatus.
    Censorship apparatus? Man, you should go to Hollywood. You are seriously funny. Untruthful but funny. There is no left censorship apparatus. If you had said a wealth censorship apparatus that would have been closer to the truth. Still, there is no apparatus. What there is, is an ability to alter the way information is concealed, half-told, twisted and portrayed to a simplistic audience who prefer to believe in conspiracy theories as opposed to the reality that the power of wealth has always provided.

    I am going to try to post this again. Musk has evidently purged a group of more left wing journalists, while when I reported accounts circulating fake birth certificates and voter registrations for Michelle Obama trying to prove she is a man I was told none of those accounts had violated Twitter rules.

    Uh, Erin? How can you be this naive?

    Could be next? ARE next. That's the whole point of this buyout.
     
    Yep. And Alex Jones and Trump were invited to come back to Twitter.
     
    Absolutely true that he can ban who he wants. But then he doesn’t get to strut around and claim he is some sort of “free speech” savior.

    That makes zero sense.
     
    Good question…


    Really getting extreme with ads on YouTube too. One ad was basically a whole Jason Whitlock show. He's someone I never want to listen.

    And bc it's an ad I don't know know hoelw to block it.
