BREAKING: Elon Musk closes deal, takes over Twitter and fires top executives

Elon Musk is now officially the owner of Twitter after he closed the deal tonight, just ahead of the deadline.

And as you’d expect, he’s already fired the top executives, including the head of legal policy who banished Trump from the platform:

Here’s a bit more from CNBC:

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is now in charge of Twitter, CNBC has learned.

Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal and finance chief Ned Segal have left the company’s San Francisco headquarters and will not be returning, sources said. Vijaya Gadde, the head of legal policy, trust, and safety was also fired, the Washington Post reported.

Musk had until Friday to complete his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter or face a court battle with the company.

It’s about time and I’m so glad he’s the new owner. Now people will be able to speak their minds on Twitter without worrying about being oppressed by Twitter because it’s not woke enough or politically correct.

And I expect him to make it even better. Twitter’s best days are ahead…
