Elon Musk reaches deal to buy twitter

What would you pay to own a social giant?  Elon Musk has agreed to pay $54.20 a share, or $44 Billion dollars.  Damn.

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Mr. Musk said in a statement announcing the deal. He said he wanted “to make Twitter better than ever.”

It comes after he called for his ‘worst critics’ to remain on the social media site on Monday morning.

The billionaire said he wanted them to keep using the platform because ‘that is what free speech means’.
