Elon Musk fired up Twitter today after offering to buy the Big Tech outlet for $43 billion.
The responses on Twitter have been great. One response was from the Saudis who have a stake in the company. Musk responded to their tweet with a tweet.
Interesting. Just two questions, if I may.
How much of Twitter does the Kingdom own, directly & indirectly?
What are the Kingdom’s views on journalistic freedom of speech?

Clay Travis found it funny that lefties on Twitter are freaking about Musk making it a private company.
The left wing blue check panic over @elonmusk potentially buying @twitter is glorious. All the blue checks who have lectured us for years by saying, “It’s a private company, if you don’t like it, leave” are panicking like crazy over their echo chambers being challenged. Love. It.

Amazon-owned newspapers were concerned about Musk’s action.
Lots of people at a newspaper owned by Jeff Bezos are really concerned about a billionaire buying Twitter.

And as we reported earlier, Twitter hired Goldman Sachs to compute the real price of the company. Their answer was puzzling because it was much higher than what they recently reported.
Well this is awkward: TWTR board hired Goldman to “advise” it that the @elonmusk $54.20 offer is too low. Only problem: Goldman has a SELL rating with a $30 price target. Oops. pic.twitter.com/ViQXnXBD3C
