Frees him up to buy (or sell) shares without being encumbered by inside information or Director fiduciary duties. I think more rude shocks to come for the Twitterati.

Has he already sold his stake after the pump?

Musk tweeting nonsense now to get his fanbois to buy stock. He said Twitter should be changed to Titter.

I like Musk but he better be careful or he may end up in federal prison in violation of securities laws.

We can only hope.

The guy has $100 billion. I seriously doubt he is trying to time his moves to make the most money.

I hope he buys the company and his first move would be to fire the CEO who embraced censorship.

At 9:30 p.m., Musk tweeted an emoji of a face with round eyes and a hand over its mouth. The symbol is often used to suggest embarrassment or coy laughter, sometimes with a connotation of “Oops!”

Among the billionaire oligarchs I am not sure Musk is a negative influence. However..

He is not self made and started out with parent's blood emerald mine capital

He did not found Tesla, he bought it from the founders.

3, He used his middling coding skills to access certain businesses

The fanboys need to take a more sober look.

I am anything but a fanboy of Musk but have to admit, he hasn't done too badly for himself.

Try approx $275 Billion.

For him, buying Twitter is like you and me choosing a shoelace.

Because they said he couldn’t buy more than 15% of the company if he was on the board.

so, no board.

That's a good thing, at least he had a platform to work with.

He did not found Tesla, he bought it from the founders.

And made it better, way better.

3, He used his middling coding skills to access certain businesses 

And?

The fanboys need to take a more sober look.

Doesn't diminish that the guy is a genius in many aspects.

no they censor lies and misinformation, if if Elon owned 51% of the company, highly doubtful he let people keep stating those lies and misinformation

Doesn't diminish that the guy is a genius in many aspects.

no doubting that, must also mean that EVs are the future, getting the US off oil dependance will go a long way in making the US more energy Independent without outside entities dictating how much you have to pay

It's interesting that Musk is the hero of the left for environmentally cars, and the hero of the right for his online trolling.

It must mess with right-wingers head's knowing that their support of Musk is also a vote in favor of the truth of climate change!

His labor practices and his stance on Covid-19 make him, let's say, much less than a hero among most of those you would label as "left". He is seen by the left as an arrogant, bigoted, self aggrandizing jerk.

Twitter is crap anyway. Almost half of the accounts are bots. Bots tweeting to bots in the dark.
