LOS ANGELES — Tesla CEO Elon Musk bought Twitter on Monday for a whopping $44 billion in cash and he didn’t need a payday loan. Yep, the richest man in the world owns the 16-year-old social media platform populated by millions of users. Twitter shares increased 5.7% shortly after the purchase to finish at $51.70. Dogecoin jumped more than 17%. Elon, 50, is a self-proclaimed free speech absolutist. So you can expect less censorship and an edit button coupled with the reinstatement of proscribed individuals like quondam President Donald Trump. “Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy,” the SpaceX honcho said in a statement. “And Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated.” Elon is still busy manufacturing Neuralink implants to put inside your encephalon.

So it makes you wonder why he’s interested in Twitter proprietorship.

Will he use the platform to advertise Tesla products?

Social media reaction was mostly blasé. One person wrote, “Elon vs. Zuckerberg: Battle for the Metaverse.” Another chimed in with, “So Elon Musk buys Twitter for $44 Billion. Did he not realize he could of downloaded it for free on the App Store?” A third person added, “Free speech cost $44 billion dollars.” Jason Whitlock, host of “Fearless,” said Elon’s purchase is bad news for Woke America.

Civil rights activist Shaun King said, “At its root, Elon Musk wanting to purchase Twitter is not about left vs right. It’s about white power. The man was raised in Apartheid by a white nationalist. He’s upset that Twitter won’t allow white nationalists to target/harass people. That’s his definition of free speech.”

Twitter is now privately owned which means it’s probably time to liquidate stocks.

Are you in favor of Elon’s acquisition?

Do you sense a cryptocurrency agenda?

  1. Great news for restoration of democracy in the corporate controlled one narrative shitter platform ,maybe we will get to hear truth and rational tweeters again .Kudos to Elon 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  2. Can’t wait for Elon to put twitter straight into my brain with Neuralink!! Ye because he is a good guy, just like Trump!!! Come on!!

  3. Elon gets America the way so many leftists don’t. He’s seen how human beings can live outside the US and like many legal immigrants to this country, he has a profound appreciation for things like free speech. He came to the US for a reason. If he could have had the same success at Tesla in any other country, he’d have gone there instead.

  4. I’m thinking Elon Musk will get the Nobel peace prize before Bill Gates ever does. That will drive Gates crazy. 😜

  5. For all those who don’t like this I suggest raising your fists at the sky and yelling at someone who cares!

  6. I’ve never wanted to use Twitter due to all the censorship and speech bans, but if Elon does what he says he will, then I will finally use Twitter.

  7. This is the end of Bitcoin… Dogecoin will dominate!! 🚀🚀🚀🚀 The new Twitter money!

  8. Unacceptable. Social media should not be a platform for racism, bigotry and misogyny. I’m canceling my Twitter account.

  9. The purchase was not to promote tesla, its so he could become president of Texas and Florida once both secede. That would give Musk a green tech, 3 airlines, two common currencies (bitcoin and dogecoin), ng exports, to name a few. it’s win all the way around.

  10. The surge in share prices alone have already made back almost 7B of that investment. Good job, Mr Elon Musk. I hope it does shake things up for sure.

  11. The fact that people are losing their minds over this just shows how scared some people are of free speech. And that is usually those who loses every discussion that involves arguments and facts.

  12. If Elon Musk truly makes Twitter a platform for free and uncensored opinions, I will definitely rejoin it.

  13. I can’t for the life of me understand why anyone would think that this deal is a bad move-Elon is by his very nature a well meaning individual, in fact he’s probably one of the worlds greatest humans ever. Not that many rich people aim as high as he has, he is an altruist, he is in this for the benefit of man, not just a man.

  14. Why are old school liberals so dismissive with free speech on social media? No principles whatsoever… only excuses like, “they’re a private company”. I’ve lost so much respect for the left, and feel embarrassed calling myself a classic liberal. Democrats have morphed into something radical.

  15. I’m looking forward to big changes after Elon bought Twitter. Freedom and democracy are important things !

  16. I think Elon Musk buying Twitter was the best thing he could have done for our democracy as a whole. This country was founded on a two party system and one party having more power over the other is Tyranny. Elon giving one party their voice back makes him an American hero.

  17. Elon Musk is the most influential African American in the 21st century.

  18. Shaun king is a fraud. He proved that he ISNT a black man by doing the most un-black dude thing there is. He threw his mom under the bus. A lot of the same black dudes that will rob, steal, shoot, jump on and screw over anyone on earth in a heartbeat act like angels toward mom, and wont say anything negative about her. Implying your mother is a hoe is less black than going to Yanni concerts and drinking chamomile tea and smoking Marlboro reds

  19. The Twitter board played him.Nobody else wanted it. He made an offer they felt was too low,so they pretended to adopt a poison pill. When he upped the offer to $45 BILLION,they took the money and signed a contract because they knew that the next day the profit reports were coming out and they had LOST money. It’s already lost 6% in two days, and he overpaid for a company that was on the brink of failure because the advertisers aren’t buying ad space. He’s still $22 BILLION dollars short of the cash to buy Twitter,so he has to sell Tesla stock to complete the deal. That’s why Tesla stock fell 12% yesterday. He may be smart on making cars,but he hasn’t figured out the wolves of Wall Street.

  20. I love this African American Elon Musk.
    Anyway. Twitter is private company, is not it? If somebody disagrees with the policy Elon starts, he can create his own social network, right? Just like DonaldTrump.

  21. Elon Musk saved free speech. Tell the fake news
    someone else is coming for them. We the people
    are sick of being fed lies. Give us the truth or we will
    cancel you. It only takes one great person to stand
    up for truth. Truth and justice used to be the American
    way. There is hope for our corrupt and degenerate society if we take back our God given freedoms.

  22. Why do liberals hate America so much?
    Look at Elon Musk, the most successful and wealthiest African American on earth.
    Only in America!

  23. Musk is a despicable human being with stupid plans for twitter. Now he will be responsible for the end of the civil world.

  24. If you truly believe the Twitter nonsense & do not understand that it’s simply to bring back all the people who formed their own online communities…..Then go make a twitter, be blinded by the establishment again, & pretend to have free speech.
    Clowns Clowns Clowns

  25. This proves even further that they ran twitter and had full control over the censorship against their political opponents. Isnt it funny all of a sudden they have a huge problem with Twitter being owned by someone who champions “FREE SPEECH FOR ALL” THESE DEMOCRATS ARE COMMUNISTS-CALL THEM WHAT THEY ARE!!!

  26. Oh no the putrid left may now have to hear reasonable logic,common sense and free speech
    Like you cannot change genders ever!.

  27. Democrats are headed to hell
    Once they tell the truth
    They will spontaneously combust
    Come on God

  28. Thank You ELON, Now make it fair for EVERYONE, Despite your political afiliation, GET RID OF THE LEFT WING NUTS THAT SILENCE THE TRUTH TO PROTECT THERE AGENDA , AND THE DEMOCRAT LIES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
