Today, Elon Musk announced he’d bought into Twitter. I have to admit, I didn’t see it coming, but it really seems like and Elon Musk kind-of-thing to do. If you don’t like it, buy it, and make it everything you always wanted it to be?
Musk had chastised Twitter on many occasions in the past for its censorship of both content and members on it’s platform. Anyone who made comments against the liberal left narrative got the boot. One of the biggest names to be removed from the site was President Trump. But Trump wasn’t the first, and certainly not the last. Many of those suspended or banned from the platform were removed from Twitter for what we now know to be astonishing truths.
So if Musk was so critical of Twitter and its censoring ways, why would he would he buy stock in the failing company?
I think that question has a vast array of answers but consider this:
Elon Musk is now the largest share holder in Twitter, and since Musk bought in, Twitter stock has soared back into Wall Street action.
And although Musk bought in as a passive shareholder, he is the largest shareholder and has ten days to file a simple form that would change that passive status and land him smack dab on Twitter’s board of directors. That tells me that Twitter is about to change.
People once suspended or banned from the platform are calling on Musk to reinstate their accounts. More interestingly, dozens of influential people have been calling on Musk to reinstate the account of President Donald J. Trump.
The coming days and weeks should be interesting at Twitter.
Personally, I could use a few mean tweets right now. Might even make a Twitter account so that I can read them if they come back.
