The deal between Elon Musk and Twitter started many months ago, and it was quite a ride. The deal had a lot of ups and downs, and controversies. Many things happened in these months, including a withdrawal from Musk after Twitter failed to meet his requirements for user info. In light of the withdrawal, the company’s shares fell, and it has no other choice than to go to court to force Musk to proceed with the deal. Thankfully, the judgment was not necessary as Musk had a “change of heart” and decided to proceed with the deal. The deal was completed in the last month, but the controversies did not end.
Elon Musk started his role as the company’s CEO by removing most of the company’s high executives. He also promotes a series of measures in social media such as the controversial “verified” tag on Twitter Blue. He also announced a series of layoffs to bring the company “back to green”, and the end of the “free lunch“. As you may know, most of the company’s old employees are not happy with Musk’s administration. Some are leaving the company.
