Lucas Manfredi: Twitter accepts Musk’s $44 billion deal: Musk, a self-described “free-speech absolutist”, has been critical of the platform’s approach to free speech
Elon Musk has officially purchased Twitter for $54.20 a share. Absolutely monstrous win for free speech on social media. Feast on the left wing blue check tears as they realize their rigged marketplace of ideas is dying. Glorious.

I hope that even my worst critics remain on Twitter, because that is what free speech means

Four days ago, Obama called for full-blown censorship on social media.
Today, Twitter will accept @ElonMusk‘s offer.
Free speech lives.
Suck it, Communists.

Ace: TWITTER: WE’VE ACCEPTED ELON MUSK’S OFFER
Twitter press release:
Twitter, Inc. today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by an entity wholly owned by Elon Musk, for $54.20 per share in cash in a transaction valued at approximately $44 billion. Upon completion of the transaction, Twitter will become a privately held company.
Under the terms of the agreement, Twitter stockholders will receive $54.20 in cash for each share of Twitter common stock that they own upon closing of the proposed transaction. The purchase price represents a 38% premium to Twitter’s closing stock price on April 1, 2022, which was the last trading day before Mr. Musk disclosed his approximately 9% stake in Twitter.
Let the tears flow like wine.
Twitchy: CONFIRMED: Twitter has officially been sold to Elon Musk (and there was much rejoicing UNLESS you’re a joyless harpy who hates free speech)
The fact that the Democrats are melting over Elon Musk buying Twitter proves how much they relied on Twitter to destroy & silence political opponents

Elon Musk is buying Twitter and everyone freaking out drives a Tesla. There’s never been a dumber time to be alive.

Hahaha hit me up when you complain Bezos, Gates, and China.

Why is Elon Musk a problem but not Mark Zuckerberg?
I’d argue Facebook, who sold user data to third parties, is FAR worse.
