    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.
     
    Yes, and i still say it is antisemitism when you bring it up randomly.

    Or at least, the only reason you know about it is because of your sources that are antisemitic.
    Bring it up randomly? Is Poltico antisemitic because I brought it up when I posted their article saying Soros and other prominent Democrats were funding the protest?

    My opinion is that anything that isn't critical of Israel right now is antisemitic, because it is harmful to Jewish people, so yes.

    The only reason you know George Soros's name is because of antisemites pushing the theory that Jews run the world.

    According to this poster, Twitter removed the Community Note that proved Eric was lying about this photo. It’s not the first time - Musk routinely has them remove Community Notes from his own crazy tweets.

     
    SFL: do you think Twitter should remove Community Notes from Elon’s posts? Or his pet posters? Why have Community Notes if he is going to misuse them in this manner?
     
    This is true. Musk treats Twitter as his own personal soapbox now. He boosts horrible people and sics trolls on people he doesn’t like.
