Really not sure why he'd want it seeing how Twitter is pretty much in it's final form. It's not like there's gonna be a lot of future innovation that dramatically changes the way people post 280 characters. The only value Twitter has is traffic and it's hard to imagine there's an untapped market anywhere in the world at this point.
Maybe there's more to Twitter than I know about. I only have an account to view content that is linked on other platforms.
Twitter could easily boost their revenue by offering a real subscription option instead of the pathetic "Twitter Blue" option they offer now which offers no reason at all to subscribe.There’s a lot of monetization strategies they could use, including payments using crypto rails, paying to get verified, among other things. With all that said, I think he’s mainly doing it as a way to preserve free speech, which is interesting.
I just use it for some trusted follows. I always get breaking notifications from Twitter accounts before I get them from new sources.The more I hear, the more I think I’ll ultimately just stop using Twitter altogether.

As far as personal socially media, I dont have a use for it. For that purposes, Twitter is all the things that went wrong with Facebook. I use Facebook to keep up with friends from the service, and thats gotten difficult to do because people basically want to use it like ots Twitter
I think it depends whether it was a true "poison pill" to prevent a takeover or simply a defensive move to setup a stronger negotiation side for the board.Twitter has implemented a poison pill to prevent takeover.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out, they are basically going to dilute their own stock value to prevent him from buying Twitter. Can't imagine that shareholders are going to be too excited about this vs a 38% over the value that Musk offered.
I would assume Musk knew they were going to reject his offer that is why he mentioned having a Plan B.
I'm torn on the free speech question from Musk and what that would mean if he opens the platform like never before. I believe in transparency and the more access everyone has to knowledge, the better the world.
But I also see how it has become a tool for propaganda and has a higher sense of responsibility than it ever realized because of its addictive nature.
Bottomline is I don't believe that humanity automatically guarantees decency and goodwill, and we need to be practical about these things.
But I'm not sure it even matters because of that recent news that half of Twitter users are bots. Add to that the only people who really get attention on it are celebrities. May just be fool's gold.
