Probably his last Hail Mary to avoid the $1 billion penalty, thankfully this will be over soon.

^^^ that won't work unless the board folds - which is doubtful in this case since this offer is now at such a premium. If he wants out - its going to be tied up in lawsuits for ages as the shareholders will try to extract as much money out of him as possible.

Twitter stock under $40 now. It seems like best case scenario for Musk is to payout the $1B and walk away. The lawsuits will be endless and distracting to even someone of his wealth.

Sadly it seems that's the most important thing that defines a person these days. You aren't smart if you aren't rich and successful.

Pro tip for any billionaires - if you're going to buy something for $44 billion dollars - probably shouldn't waive "business due diligence."

I mean.... that's Business 101 isn't it? How do you get this far and think that's a good idea.

Twitter should just release that data. Though if they could identify which accounts were bots, wouldn’t they have shut them down? Also is Musk still on the hook fro $50-something per share?
