Twitter’s board has agreed to a once in a lifetime deal to sell Twitter for $44 billion to Billionaire and Tech Tycoon Elon Musk. The move come in midst of Elon’s bid to rebuild the social network and give it a new vision and reflect what Twitter actually should be.
Meanwhile Elon also endeavored to keep as many shareholders onboard as possible by law and he also remarked that if he acquired Twitter, he will try his best to fight off spam bots or die trying. As of right now, it is not clear who the CEO of the company would be.
