The Tesla billionaire bought Twitter for $44 billion on Monday, promising to turn it private and restore it to its origins as “the free speech wing of the free speech party.” The billionaire made his buyout attempt at $54.20 per share earlier this month, shortly after purchasing a 9.2 percent stake in Twitter on April 4. At the time, Twitter’s stock was trading for less than $40 per share.
Since Musk disclosed his acquisition ambitions, Twitter stocks have risen by more than 35%. They were trading above $52 per share on the day of the purchase, but have since dropped below $49 per share.
