    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.
     
    Musk amplifies racist tweets and election lies. And that was just this week.



    He makes sure Twitter amplifies his lies. And he doesn’t apologize for getting things wrong, ever. That’s how you know he isn’t operating in good faith. The most you ever get is him stealthily deleting a tweet.
     
    That isn't an article.

    It is a twitter thread from a guy whose livelihood is tied to rubes clicking his shirtty tweets.
    The article was in the 1st post from NBC.


    His thread highlights the misinformation reporters who are obviously aren't credible.

    Is it possible that one or two reporters aren’t credible? Or a fact check here and there is wrong? Of course.

    Does it then follow that misinformation is a made-up issue that doesn’t exist? No, of course not.

    Just because there are fact checks that are incorrect doesn’t mean there aren’t people out there purposefully spreading misinformation. I mean you get that, right?

    Who would want you to think that all of these fact checks are invalid? Who?

    Misinformation reporters are largely activists who want censorship of their political opponents or view they don't like.

    Misinformation reporters don’t ever censor anyone. This is just a ridiculous take here. Good grief.
     
    Because MAGAs are such fine people there is a rash of AI generated porn featuring Taylor Swift. Musk’s response is to make it impossible for anyone to search for Taylor Swift content on Twitter. He doesn’t remove the offending content, no, he punishes the victim. What a complete worm he is.

     

    Who in their right mind would sign up for this? Have they not seen Space X rockets explode? No way I'd ever be Elon's guinea pig.

    Dude, it could be a lot worse than just a malfunction. Surprised you didn't make the connection yourself.

    It would be like this scene from the Kingsmen movie. :smilielol:
