Twitter agrees to sell itself to Elon Musk

Twitter said it has agreed to sell itself to Elon Musk, who will take the company private in a deal valued at around $44 billion.
The deal caps off a whirlwind news cycle in which the Tesla and SpaceX CEO became one of Twitter's largest shareholders, was offered and turned down a seat on its board and bid to buy the company — all in less than a month.

2:14 So she's saying free speech should not be the goal of a social media platform, but instead to prevent "misinformation". Well, not surprising considering this is CNN, but still disappointing

This is amazing I'm so glad Elon bought Twitter and I don't even use the platform because I think it's terrible, but whatever it's cool there will be new ownership. People deserve the right to speak their mind and they should be able to do so even on Twitter and even if this lady disagrees with them and calls it misinformation. It's not up to Twitter to decide what's true or false it is the duty of the media to investigate and report and the people have the freedom of deciding, sharing, and voicing their opinions. Go Elon!

U know what, I’m happy with selter’s take on this, he seems very open minded and seems to have the right spirit about this move. Whether or not Donald trump is a positive or negative figure is obviously controversial, but having him back on Twitter will show people his character and opinions, and that is the beauty of free speech, you can hear everyone’s take with all their cards on the table and be able to determine whether or not you agree with them and have a discussion and I’m glad Stelter sees it that way. I’ve been a Stelter hater for a long time, but I hope we see this side of him more.

Edit: Now that I think about it, maybe he is just happy that cnn can go back to reporting on trump’s tweets again since they are losing viewers.

I've been using Twitter for about 10 years now. The fact that I can say there's 10 different genders and someone is now allowed to say the words "I disagree" without being banned, called racist, sexist, or a White Supremacist is downright scary. How am I going to cope?
