(DCWatchdog.com) – HAPPENING NOW: Elon Musk has made the big move that millions of free speech advocates have hoped he would undertake.
Musk has launched a hostile takeover bid for Twitter.
Musk wants to purchase all the shares of Twitter at a premium and then take the company private.
Musk has been a critic of Twitter’s constant and continuing censoring and banishment of mostly conservative voices and opinions from its social media platform — the most prominent of which was the permanent banishment of former President Donald Trump.
As The Daily Caller reports this morning:
“Elon Musk wants to own 100% of Twitter.
“The tech visionary and billionaire recently set off a firestorm when he purchased a large chunk of Twitter’s stock, and he’s now coming for the whole thing for the price of $43.4 billion, according to The Hollywood Reporter…
“Now, the Tesla genius has the opportunity to take complete control, and make Twitter a platform that honors the ideas of free speech and diversity of thought.
“He can make a place where stating basic facts doesn’t get you banned.” [emphasis added]
This is a breaking news report.
