Money talks, apparently.
Twitter reportedly is close to making a deal to sell to Elon Musk.
Twitter has been in talks over the weekend to accept what Musk has called his “best and final offer” to buy the left-leaning, cancel-culture happy social media platform.
Musk, worth an estimated $270 billion, according to Forbes, and has already purchased more than 9% of Twitter’s stock.
He says he wants to make the social media platform more transparent, possibly authenticating users, kicking bots off the site, and potentially bringing back certain banned accounts.
It is the original offer Musk made of $54.20 cents a share, amounting to 43-billion dollars.
The sources say Twitter might announce the deal later today once its board meets to recommend it to shareholders, but that it’s always possible the deal could collapse at the last minute.
