Changes too big to leave Twitter as a public (listed) company

Elon Musk offers to buy back the more than 800 million shares of TWTR, at a unit price of $54.20. It is therefore a jackpot of approximately $43.4 billion that our big fan of Dogecoin is ready to put on the table to redeem the social network.

Also included in this document is the statement below from Elon Musk, which explains why he makes this offer: he thinks that Twitter needs to become a private enterprise (unlisted), at least the time to operate there major changes.

“To Bret Taylor, Chairman of the Board [de Twitter],
I invested in Twitter because I believe in its potential as a platform for free speech around the world, and I believe that free speech is a societal imperative for a functioning democracy.
However, since my investment, I realize that the company will neither be able to prosper nor serve this societal imperative in its current form. Twitter must be transformed into a private company.
Accordingly, I am offering to buy 100% of Twitter for $54.20 per share in cash (…) My offer is my best and final offer and if not accepted I will have to reconsider my position as shareholder.
Twitter has extraordinary potential. I will unlock it. »

It’s hard to say at this time if Elon Musk’s generous offer (TWTR stock currently trading at $47) will eventually be withheld or not. In any case, in the meantime, it may make fans dream of Dogecoin (DOGE). Indeed, barely a few days after his purchase of 9.2% of Twitter shares, the engineer-billionaire was already offering tointegrate DOGE as a means of payment for premium subscription Blue Twitter. So if Elon Musk acquires all of Twitter, one can imagine the potential size of the bone for his favorite crypto-doggie.
