Elon Musk will buy Twitter for 44 billion
Elon Musk, the world's richest man, signed a deal to buy Twitter for $ 44 billion on Monday.
Twitter served as a megaphone before banning former U.S. President Donald Trump from the platform.
Musk, a self-proclaimed "free-spirited liberal," said he wanted to improve what he saw as "extra-exciting restraint."
"Freedom is the foundation of democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where important issues for the future of mankind are discussed," Musk said in a statement.
I want to make Twitter better than before. Develop products with new features, build trust open source algorithms, defeat spam bots and authenticate all people. "
The publicly traded company will now become a private company owned by Musk and will discuss a purchase price of $ 54.20 per share, Twitter said.
We are deeply proud of our teams and inspired by work that was never important before," company CEO Parag Agarwal said in a tweet.
Musk raised about $ 46.5 billion for the acquisition last week, and "It simply came to our notice then, and he had to come to the negotiating table," she told CNBC in an interview.
