Elon Musk Takes Over Twitter

This is big news coming from Elon Musk. He has officially taken over Twitter after months of fighting with the company’s shareholders, board members, and others who have made the takeover nearly impossible. He shared on Wednesday a video of him entering the Twitter headquarters, with the caption for the tweet being, “Entering Twitter HQ – let that sink in!” He was comically holding a sink in the video.


The comical moment came after an October 15 tweet saying he would dress as a sink for Halloween:


He also changed his Twitter bio to “Chief Twit,” a signifier that he has taken over the company for his around $43 billion investment. Reports note that Musk will serve as the company’s CEO.

Bloomberg reported, “The company is expected to come under Musk’s ownership by 5 p.m. New York time on Oct. 28, as lawyers and bankers on both sides race to finalize paperwork. Leslie Berland, Twitter’s chief marketing officer and head of people, sent a memo to employees Wednesday saying that Musk was visiting the company’s headquarters this week, according to people who received the note.”

He previously wrote on Wednesday morning, “A beautiful thing about Twitter is how it empowers citizen journalism – people are able to disseminate news without an establishment bias.”

Twitter users were quick to respond to the news, with conservatives such as Ryan Fournier celebrating, writing, “Now the fun begins!”


Leftists previously were quick to claim they would “miss Twitter” when Musk takes over, some even threatening to leave the platform:

I have only this to say to the 75% of the current Twitter employees: Don’t let the door hit you in the butt when you get your pink slip.

Suck it up buttercup.
