Elon Musk found out one piece of shocking news that will change his life forever
Elon Musk is now a central player in American politics.
That’s driving the Left crazy.
And Elon Musk found out one piece of shocking news that will change his life forever.
Back in April, Elon Musk sent shockwaves through Silicon Valley and Washington by making a $44 billion offer to purchase Twitter.
Believing it was some kind of stunt, journalists and political pundits heaped loads of skepticism on the idea that Musk would follow through on the deal.
But Musk received the first of three pieces of news that would close the deal.
And the first was that Twitter’s board unanimously voted to accept Musk’s offer of $54.20 per share and $44 billion in total.
Fox News reports:
“The Twitter Board, after considering various factors described in the section of this proxy statement captioned “The Merger— Recommendation of the Twitter Board and Reasons for the Merger,” has unanimously: (1) determined that the merger agreement is advisable and the merger and the other transactions contemplated by the merger agreement are fair to, advisable and in the best interests of Twitter and its stockholders; and (2) adopted and approved the merger,” the company said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing on Tuesday.
The deal, which is currently expected to close in 2022, would take Twitter private at $54.20 per share.
Musk said the other two pieces that must fall into place are debt financing for the remaining $11 billion to purchase Twitter after he put up $33 billion.
And the final piece is Twitter assuaging Musk’s concerns about the number of spam accounts that exist on the platform.
Twitter claims just five percent of the accounts are spam bots, while Musk says his data shows that number is closer to 20 percent.
Leftists are terrified this deal will go through.
Musk made it clear that he will roll back Twitter’s censorship regime and the platform will exist as a model of free speech.
And that worries the Left because censoring the internet and suppressing negative stories about Democrats by claiming they were the product of “Russian disinformation” was the last arrow in their quiver.
Americans view Joe Biden as a failure on every issue, so Democrats have no positive record to run on this fall.
And if Americans are allowed to speak freely online and access information that Democrats would like to hide from them, the chances of a Democrat victory in 2022 and 2024 plummets.
