Twitter nade him a member of their Board of Directors. As long as he is on Board, he can not own more than 14.9% of their common stock.

The View apparently trashed Elon pretty good, and his EV's. It is going to get very interesting. I am waiting for some type of run at him on the legality of his stock purchase, Did not fill out the proper paperwork etc. Bezos made a run at Elon and lost.

I’m guessing Tesla owners are mostly Democrats. I wouldn’t expect Musk to do anything to upset that apple cart. Especially now that the EV market is getting competitive.

Musk has shown repeatedly that he doesn't care what people think. Very similar to Trump in that manner. Keeps his own counsel and likes to be a maverick.

Can Musk still get kicked off twitter?

Maybe it was a preemptive survival move...

What I hope is that he continues buying more of it so he can potentially add more board seats and has greater control.

He uses Twitter to help his equity trades. Front runs and then tells the world about it...

He needs to end the fact that it’s free.

You should have to pay to be able to read and post/tweet.

There should be different pay levels.

I hope they eventually come to this conclusion

Twitter is imploding. Charles Payne, who I greatly respect as a financial guru, said all of twitters financials are down significantly. I'm not surprised. When you piss off half your potential customer base, you'll have that.
