3 thoughts on “Musk says $44B Twitter acquisition ‘temporarily on hold’

  1. Musk has not consummated this acquisition and already he has caused an improvement in fundamental business decisions by existing management.

  2. There’s a lot of bots. Post anything with Tesla, Musk, SpaceX, or any crapto/nft hashtag and they’ll scurry out very quickly.

    Perhaps Musk himself runs bots that account for 10% of the Twitter activity, and he knows he can rank them further before he buys it.

  3. Let’s not forget that both Musk and Twitter are mutually on the hook for $1B should they/either be the cause of the deal failing.
