They’ve All Been TERMINATED…It’s Official

According to reports that broke late into the evening of Oct.28 Elon Musk’s long-belabored takeover of Twitter is complete.

The sale of the company has been finalized and top-ranking executives such as former CEO Paraj Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal and Head of legal policy, trust, and safety Vijaya Gadde, known for banning former President Donald Trump, are no longer with the firm, according to The Washington Post.

General Counsel Sean Edgett has also reportedly been terminated.

Hours before the completion of the $44 billion stock buyout at $54.20 per share Musk made a dramatic entrance into Twitter’s headquarters in San Diego… carrying a sink.

“Entering Twitter HQ – let that sink in!” Musk tweeted..

He subsequently met with staffers at the building’s cafe’ “The Perch” and changed his Twitter bio to read “Cheif Twit” and listed his location as “Twitter HQ.”

In a statement released by Musk he explained why he made the purchase,

“I wanted to reach out personally to share my motivation in acquiring Twitter,” Musk said. “There has been much speculation about why I bought Twitter and what I think about advertising. Most of it has been wrong.”

“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 added. “There is currently great danger that social media will splinter into far right wing and far left wing echo chambers that generate more hate and divide our society.”

“In the relentless pursuit of clicks, much of traditional media has fueled and catered to those polarized extremes, as they believe that is what brings in the money, but, in doing so, the opportunity for dialogue is lost,” He continued. “That is why I bought Twitter. I didn’t do it because it would be easy. I didn’t do it to make more money. I did it to try to help humanity, whom I love. And I do so with humility, recognizing that failure in pursuing this goal, despite our best efforts, is a very real possibility.”

“That said, Twitter obviously cannot become a free-for-all hellscape, where anything can be said with no consequences!” Musk added in conclusion.

“In addition to adhering to the laws of the land, our platform must be warm and welcoming to all, where you can choose your desired experience according to your preferences, just as you can choose, for example, to see movies or play video games ranging from all ages to mature.”
