In the world of business and technology, there are few people as well-known or fascinating as Elon Musk.

He is the founder, CEO, and CTO of SpaceX, co-founder of Tesla Motors, and chairman of SolarCity.

He has aimed to revolutionize transportation, energy production, and space exploration. While he has faced some setbacks in recent years, he remains one of the most influential figures in business today.

This tech mogul acquired Twitter last. The news was a surprise to many, but when you think about it, it makes perfect sense.

Musk is no stranger to social media. He is an active user of Twitter — His following on other social media outfits altogether sums up to over 50 million people.

He is also no stranger to using social media to further his business interests. For example, he regularly uses Twitter to promote Tesla, SpaceX, and The Boring Company.

It is not uncommon for him to tweet about Tesla several times a day.

Given his background, it is not surprising that he would be interested in acquiring Twitter even before.

After all, what better way to promote his businesses than by owning the platform he already uses so effectively? Not to mention that Twitter would be a valuable addition to his existing portfolio of companies.

There are rumors that Musk plans to use Twitter to launch a news network that would compete with traditional news outlets like CNN and Fox News.

Included in the plans is to transform free speech — and revamp the entire company after sacking top executives of the platform.

Not good news for the employees — but it would certainly make sense given Elon’s history of disrupting established industries. His ways are messy — but it looks like he is rewarded for whatever people say.

Are we expecting a comeback from ex-President Donald Trump — by the way?

What do you think?

Final Thoughts

Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter is a smart move that makes perfect sense considering…
