It is in Elon Musk's best interest to own Twitter and turn it personal so he can implement the improvements he desires.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has launched a $43 billion acquisition proposal over Twitter following purchasing a 9.2 percent stake two weeks ago.

For Twitter, Musk announced in a new Official statement that he would pay $54.20 per unit — 54% more than the stock's market valuation on January 28 — which is 38% more than the stock's price per share on April 1, just a day before Musk's stakes in Twitter became public knowledge."

He can easily afford to buy Twitter, which is valued at $37 billion, according to Bloomberg.

According to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who has more than 80 million daily users on the social media network, Twitter serves as the world's "platform for free speech." His next demand is for Twitter to become a privately owned business.

Musk wrote in the statement, "I have concluded I wish to purchase the firm and take it private," after pondering the issue for so many days.

A few weeks ago Musk had asked if Twitter is fizzling out. He points out that some of its most prominent users haven't yet written for quarters on the service.

Twitter is one of Musk's investments because he believes in its capacity to be a global forum for freedom of speech and expression, which he believes is essential to a modern democracy.

As a result of my investment, I've come to recognize, however, that in its current shape, the company can neither flourish nor satisfy this public necessity." As a private enterprise, Twitter needs a complete overhaul.

'If my offer is not accepted, I will have to reevaluate my posture as an investor,' he said.

In a statement, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said he is not engaged in a "back-and-forth game."

A 9.2 percent stake in Twitter's stocks was obtained by Tesla CEO Elon Musk on March 14, when he purchased 73.486,938 shares of the company's 800,641,166 shares of stock.

With Barack Obama, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga in the top 10, Musk is one of the most popular people on Twitter.

According to him, "@taylorswift13 hasn't updated for 3 months" and "@justinbieber hasn't updated for the full year" are examples of Twitter's decline.

Elon Musk tweets humor and memes about everything from the origin of the world to SpaceX satellite launches, Starling spacecraft, and the functionality of Tesla's electric vehicles, among other things.

Musk claims in the filing that if the takeover effort fails, he will re-evaluate his interest in Twitter because he lacks confidence in its management. He asserted that unless the corporation is turned private, the necessary reforms will not be implemented.

As he stated, "If the deal doesn't work, given my lack of faith in leadership and my doubts that I can force the necessary transformation in the regular market," I would need to reevaluate my status as an investor.".

As of April 10, Parag Agrawal, the CEO of Twitter, revealed that Tesla CEO Elon Musk would not be joining the board. Musk has previously stated that he would not acquire more than 14.9 percent of Twitter's common stock.

"Massively enlarge the verified pool make bot armies prohibitively expensive to sustain," is how Musk describes his goal.
