Elon Musk takes 9% stake in social media company

Yeah, no kidding. 'Cause with his current stake... he posted a poll in Twitter about



In a regulatory filing, Musk having the largest shares in the company has a seat on the company's board, the term expiring at the 2024 annual meeting.

So what's he suggesting as a shareholder?  An authentication checkmark for the premium users, and features to discourage the tons of spambots appearing.  He also wishes to eliminate advertisements so companies don't have power to dictate policy, and allow various payment options including Doge.

But the title of this article was regarding the "San Francisco Twitter HQ". As he saw no one actively using the site, he made a poll asking members if it was a valid idea.  As of 3:30p.m. Sunday, there have been nearly 1.8 million votes in favor of the idea.

New York Post Wrote:A retired nurse has lost $43,000 and her part-time job after bitcoin scammers took over her work computer.

The woman from Buffalo, New York, who asked ABC affiliate WKBW to withhold her identity from their report, said she was duped into sending scammers the money via wire transfer and “bitcoin ATM” to an unknown party after a computer pop-up told her to do it.

The fake ad was part of a common phishing scheme involving malware that purports to lock you out of your desktop and warn you that your finances have been hacked. The victim is told that the only way to save their money is to move it into a new location — one where you’re never given access.

The pop-up asked the woman to call a number, which connected her with someone who informed her that her bank credentials had been compromised and she needed to move her money in order to save it.

She lost a total of $43,130 in cash, wiring $13,700 to a bank in East Asia and depositing $29,430 into a bitcoin ATM, which converts your dollars to cryptocurrency and moves it into a digital wallet — ideally your own. In this case, the woman was provided a barcode and sent her money to somewhere in Kolkata, India.

Epoch Times Wrote:Twitter’s board of directors has approved Elon Musk’s offer to purchase the social media firm and take it private in a transaction valued at about $44 billion, the company announced on April 25.

The company accepted the billionaire entrepreneur’s proposal of $54.20 per share in cash.

“Twitter has a purpose and relevance that impacts the entire world. Deeply proud of our teams and inspired by the work that has never been more important,” CEO Parag Agrawal said in a company statement.

Musk said in a statement: “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. I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential—I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”
...
The agreement came after Musk confirmed last week that he had secured $46.5 billion in funding commitments to finance the takeover. This included $25.5 billion in debt financing through Morgan Stanley and other financial firms.

Musk plans to take the company private when the transaction is completed. The deal is expected to finalize this year. Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, and Allen & Co. are working as financial advisers to Twitter, while Morgan Stanley is serving as lead financial adviser to Musk.

Some people Thinking think that Musk's move will bring free speech back to Twitter...
Confused I'm not that optimistic to be honest with you.
Only time will tell...

My issue is that almost everything Musk has tried to take on has massively failed a few times before he got it right...

Rocket that lands itself? BOOM, BOOM, almost there... Boom, and YAY it worked!

Lunching his Tesla Roaster to Mars? Well... we'll pass Mars orbit and start rotations about ... here.. No where near Mars.

Internet Satellites? Whoops lost 40 at once.

Hyper Loop? Well... uh...


Let's hope that he handles Twitter with kid gloves.
