Twitter Formally Accepts Elon Musk’s Takeover Bid – Opinion

It was evident that people were holding their breath on Twitter. Although I had refreshed several times, it was still showing the same tweets about very little. Only after seeing this tweet did I understand.

RedState reports that Musk is keen to buy Twitter. He began last week making plans for the acquisition. The legacy media and the radical Left—but I repeat myself—did their level best to make him look like Dr. Evil squared, and the Twitter board did all they could to block him, even tanking its own stock instead of accepting Musk’s offer.

Musk, despite their best efforts to the contrary, just waited and managed to get his ducks in order. The Twitter board fought back, turning their spears into ploughshares, and their swords into ploughshares. Finally, they gave up and accepted the inevitable.

Now, it’s done. It happened much faster than we thought.
