Elon Musk says Trump had no involvement in decision to acquire Twitter

Elon Musk set the record straight saying there is no truth to rumors that former President Donald Trump had no involvement with his Twitter purchase. “This is false. I’ve had no communication, directly or indirectly, with Trump, who has publicly stated that he will be exclusively on Truth Social” Musk tweeted.

Musk’s response comes after Devin Nunes said Trump had “encouraged” Musk to acquire Twitter. Nunes is the CEO of Trump Media and Technology Group.

In an appearance on Fox Business Network Nunes stated “President Trump, basically before Elon Musk bought it, actually said to go and buy it because the goal of our company is really to build a community where people are in a family-friendly, safe environment.”

“That’s why we encouraged Elon Musk to buy it, because someone has to take on these tech tyrants,” Nunes added. “Donald Trump wanted to make sure that the American people got their voice back and that the internet was open and that’s what we are doing.”

Last month on Fox News Trump said “I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on Truth…I hope Elon buys Twitter because he’ll make improvements to it and he is a good man, but I am going to be staying on Truth.”

Also last month Musk tweeted a little jab at Truth Social, tweeting:

“Truth Social (terrible name) exists because Twitter censored free speech. Should be called Trumpet instead!”

    Just DNC media pushing a total lie and nonstory to go after Elon Musk since he believes in our core values of freedom of speech. They just can’t stand it.

    For much I liked Trump why would a notoriously successful businessman need the approval of a has-been failed former president? And I totally agree with the “little jab”… Musk is less funny than Trump but as scalpel sharp…

    Is that a double negative or am I reading it wrong? I’m no English major but it really seems like today’s journalists don’t write correctly.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP has set up his own platform.
    Why would he go anywhere else? He already has so many millions of followers….
    But it is a GREAT move for FREEDOM of Speech and thoughts on the part of Mr MUSK!

    “there is no truth to rumors that former President Donald Trump had no involvement with his Twitter purchase.”
    Bad editing. This actually says that DT had involvement with the purchase.

BREAKING: Elon Musk dissolves Twitter’s 9-member board, appoints himself ‘sole director’

UPDATE:

Elon Musk has dissolved Twitter’s board of directors and appointed himself the company’s “sole director,” according to a Monday securities filing. The board included nine directors.

Immediately after completing his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter on Thursday, Musk fired several senior executives, including CEO Parag Agrawal.

——–

Elon Musk has finally acquired Twitter and taking a sharp and swift axe to the company. Musk announced plans to reverse the lifetime bans for Twitter users who had previously been kicked off the platform under Twitter’s previous violations of the First Amendment.

Musk took over Twitter late Thursday, and immediately fired CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal, senior legal representative Vijaya Gadde, and general counsel Sean Edgett, the Washington Post reported.

Earlier this week Twitter employees banned together to protest Musk’s plans to fire or replace nearly 75% of the staff; but to no avail. Musk fired major executives and intends to replace CEO Parag Agrawal temporarily with himself until he finds a permanent replacement, a source told Bloomberg.

Twitter workers created an open letter, obtained by Time, demanding that Musk not get rid of anyone and not discriminate against them on the basis of political views.

Oh the irony, the staff asked to be treated completely opposite of how they ran the company:

“We demand to be treated with dignity, and to not be treated as mere pawns in a game played by billionaires,” it read. “A threat of this magnitude is reckless, undermines our users’ and customers’ trust in our platform, and is a transparent act of worker intimidation.”

Despite the worry from Twitter employees, Musk has maintained faithful to his reason and purpose behind purchasing the giant company. Musk tweeted his motivations on Thursday, just before he fully acquired Twitter:

“The reason I acquired Twitter is because it is important to the future of civilization to have a common digital town square, where a wide range of beliefs can be debated in a healthy manner, without resorting to violence,” Musk wrote.
