Twitter Seems To Have Reversed Its Key Stance On Elon Musk Buyout

( When Elon Musk first proposed buying out Twitter completely and taking the company private, executives balked at the overtures.
In fact, Twitter went as far as to threaten to invoke the “poison pill” to prevent Musk from executing a forced takeover of the company. Now, only a few days later, Twitter seems to have changed its tune.
After Musk disclosed that he had the financing to back up his multi-billion-dollar offer, Twitter quickly flip-flopped.
On Monday, The New York Times reported that Twitter and Musk came to an agreement on a $44 billion deal that will see the founder of Tesla and SpaceX take over the social media giant.
He has said previously that he plans to take the company private, and will promote free speech on Twitter.
The transaction isn’t expected to be finalized for at least three if not six months, but Musk isn’t shying away from talking about the deal on the social media platform he’s purchasing. In fact, he’s already gone as far as criticizing the executives on Twitter’s board.
On Tuesday, Musk sent tweets that were critical of the company’s top lawyer and safety expert, Vijaya Gadde, as well as its deputy general counsel, Jim Baker.
Gadde was a key cog in building Twitter’s content policies and played a large role in deciding to ban former President Donald Trump from the social media platform.
First, Musk responded to a tweet sent by Saagar Enjeti, co-host of the Breaking Points podcast, who linked to a story with the headline, “Twitter’s top lawyer reassures staff, cries during meeting about Musk takeover.”
Enjeti added the comment:
“Vijaya Gadde, the top censorship advocate at Twitter who famously gaslit the world on Joe Rogan’s podcast and censored the Hunter Biden laptop story is very upset about the @elonmusk takeover.”
Musk jumped on that story, responding:
“Suspending the Twitter account of a major news organization for publishing a truthful story was obviously incredibly inappropriate.”
What Musk was referring to was the fact that Twitter suspended the account of The New York Post after it published a legitimate story about Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Later Tuesday night, Mike Cernovich, a conservative political commentator tweeted:
“Twitter lawyer Jim Baker, when general counsel of the FBI, personally arranged a meeting between the FBI and Michael Sussmann. In this meeting, Sussmann presented fabricated evidence in the Afla bank matter. @elonmusk, this is who is inside Twitter. He facilitated fraud.”
To which Musk personally replied:
“Sounds pretty bad…”
Parag Agrawal, the chief executive of Twitter, came to the defense of his board members and all of the social media company’s employees when he tweeted on Wednesday afternoon:
“I took this job to change Twitter for the better, course correct where we need to, and strengthen the service. Proud of our people who continue to do the work with focus and urgency despite the noise.”
Soon enough, it’ll no longer be his job. It’s Musk’s ship to steer now.
