The stans will say it's 3 dimensional chess, but the truth is he's sloppy and doesn't care about rules. Let's hope it falls through, he gets sued for blowing the deal, and he gets fined by SEC for intentional manipulation.

https://www.theverge.com/2022/5/13/23070422/musk-twitter-buyout-acquisition-analysts-stock-drop

Twitter shares plummet as Musk raises new doubts about acquisition
18
The Twitter buyout no longer looks like a sure thing

Twitter shares plummeted Friday after new doubts about whether Elon Musk’s planned $44 billion acquisition of the platform would go through. The share price dropped more than 10 percent at market open, trading as much as 14 points below the nominal acquisition price of $54.20 a share.

The proximate cause of the drop was a series of confusing statements from Musk, who tweeted that the deal was “temporarily on hold” pending an investigation into the total number of bot accounts on the platform. Twitter had claimed in a filing that bots compose less than 5 percent of daily active users on the platform, although many believe the real figure is higher.

Musk later clarified that he was “still committed to the acquisition,” but uncertainty about the deal has proven difficult to dispel.

right.

It seems like he is purposefully trying to shave some dollars off the price. Not 3D chess. A move that makes sense with all tech stocks down.

And again, not an Elon Musk fan but say the dude can't do nothing right...

This is destabilizing and is probably illegal under SEC rules.

So he can try to save some cash? I'd hope the next company he tries this to is wise to this bullshit.

37. "he himself said his initial offer was his final offer."
In response to Reply # 35


  

          

im not sure the board agrees to a lower price. one of the reasons they took the deal in the first place was because of the high premium on the initial offer.

im speculating here...but i think he wants to pull out of the deal and save face. or not pay that $1 billion cancellation fee.

jack (former twitter ceo) was one of the people advising elon to buy twitter and take it private. for sure he would have told elon the extent of their bot/fake account problem before now.

this isnt a serious way to audit tho:

In response to Reply # 38


          

Now he's saying "If there's a lot of bots then I won't buy it."

He's trash and deserves to be punished for it, financially.

I hope they ban has ass from twitter.

In response to Reply # 41


          

Because Elon's agreement says he gave up the right to perform due diligence.

He made the offer an accepted the terms.

Now he's changing the terms.

Fuck him - and think about who you're defending.

If he would have written that into the agreement then yes - but the clown just said 'Me give you X amount of money so I can be root" and then now realizes it's a bad deal for himself.


Too late, pay the fucking price.

And he has no proof at all - just hunches.

Fuck him again.

If I bought a car and they told me the interior was white, then as we’re tying up the deal they drive around and the interior was black I’d be annoyed. Not sure that’s changing the terms, that’s being misled

But, again, I don’t really care about the feelings of any of these scumbags

He agreed to terms of a deal.

HE ALSO SAID TWITTER HAD TOO MANY BOTS AND THAT'S A BIG REASON HE'S TRYING TO BUY IT.

HE HAS NO PROOF THAT THERE WERE MORE THAN 5% BOTS WHEN THEY MADE THE FILING. AND THE FILING SAID "TO THE BEST OF OUR KNOWDLGE...ETC."

Dude is a chump.

A liar.

A shit heel.

And he needs to lose BIG here.

Fuck your car analogy, it is not apt.

In response to Reply # 41


  

          

he doesnt care about bots.

the overwhelming majority of those bots are on there to promote right wing misinfo and inflate their engagement to manipulate the algorithm...and elon musk both benefits from and is a big driver in that ecosystem.

I work in private equity. And in almost every deal I ever work on there is some attempt to retrade after some due diligence.

I am not saying he will complete the deal or not, I am just saying it's par for the course.

and he's also playing like shit

so there's ways this works out for him, because he has so much money his opportunities have very few limits and the penalties he can face are largely inconsequential, but like, he didn't have to waive due diligence in the first place

I don't consider myself an Elon Musk fan and am looking forward to him losing a lot of money (hopefully on SpaceX). But I have to acknowledge in 50 years no one will remember his twitter fuckery and he will be remembered as the guy who kickstarted the electric car phenomenon.

He's garbage even if he kicked off the electric car phenomenon.

It'd be a simplistic view of him - but it'd probably be dumbed down to that summary in the history books that can't mention gay people in Texas.

I think the EV1 and the Prius Hybrid are responsible for paving the way to Musk. But he's the celebrity.

i have no idea why dude wakes up and feels the need to constantly insult liberals...aka the people who believe in climate change and electric vehicles...aka his customer base.

but tesla has lost more than 1/3 of its stock value since dude announced plans to buy twitter.
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FTM6rUiXoAE3Wca?format=jpg&name=900x900

hes only gonna spiral more outta control and be more self-destructive as more bad news about him and his company drop...and investors react to it.

I thought this Twitter thread was very enlightening on his cons. I get a kick out of some in the financial community calling him Enron Musk and Phony Stark.

In 2015 I decided on a whim to check out Tesla's battery swap station that was earning the company 9 figures in California ZEV credits, and found it wasn't real. Instead Tesla was using diesel generators to charge cars. Here's how this changed my life 🧵
