Update: Elon Musk acquires Twitter - not

Hi guys,

Elon Musk is acquiring Twitter after all! On 25.04.2002, the Twitter board of directors surprisingly approved the complete acquisition. For about 44 billion US dollars Twitter goes over the table (54.20 US dollars per share). Musk wants to take the service off the stock exchange later. ...

According to Musk, he wants to strengthen and preserve free expression as the backbone of democracy on Twitter, improve that product by introducing new features, disclose the source code for selecting posts in the Twitter feed to build trust, and ban spambots from the platform for good.

Since we also enjoy using the service, I'm curious to see what Musk ultimately makes of it. What is your opinion on this?

Musk won't buy Twitter after all - but Twitter insists

The company has broken several points of the takeover agreement, the billionaire writes. But the short message service does not want to let him out of the deal. Now a protracted legal battle could follow.

I'm interested to see what changes.

What I always missed on Twitter is the subsequent editing of spelling mistakes. Not the whole text, because otherwise they might not make sense anymore, but at least small corrections should be possible. The way it is handled here on this site is great.

Also the max text length is suboptimal. Threads like 1/5, 2/5 etc. are created quickly.

Elon is putting on the brakes for the time being. Was he possibly not serious about the takeover after all?

Twitter deal temporarily on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users
