(PatrioticPost.com)- Last Tuesday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk cryptically tweeted “_______ is the Night.”
And because everybody is treating every Musk tweet like some obscure prophecy from the Dead Sea Scrolls, many Twitter users were wondering what message Musk was sending.
“The answer is ‘tender is the night.’ What could Musk mean by this?” Twitter users had to know.
But this is what Musk does. He’s the King of Twitter Trolls.
He also tweeted “Love me tender.” And over the weekend, he tweeted a meme comparing a pot-bellied Bill Gates to the new “pregnant man” emoji.
Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that Twitter’s board of directors may be “softening” to Musk’s offer to purchase the company. According to the Journal, Musk and Twitter would be meeting on Sunday to discuss the offer.
That surprising turn of events comes after it was reported that Musk had been wooing many of the company’s shareholders with financing details on his $43 billion purchase offer.
According to Reuters, sources suggest that Twitter’s decision to engage with Musk doesn’t necessarily mean that the company will accept his current $54.20 per share bid. But it does signify that Twitter is exploring whether selling to Musk is possible “on attractive terms.”
Over the last week, Musk had been meeting with shareholders seeking support for his offer. In his discussions, Musk argued that Twitter needs to go private both to grow and become a genuine free speech platform.
Reuter’s reported Sunday morning that after speaking with Musk, many of those shareholders contacted the company urging Twitter not to let the opportunity slip through its fingers.
According to sources who spoke with Reuters, Twitter’s board of directors chose to engage with Musk to determine if he has the resources to complete the deal and also to seek better terms.
However, the board wants to know about any active investigations of Musk by federal regulators, including the Securities and Exchange Commission, that might prevent a deal from being completed.
The company hasn’t decided if it will pressure Musk to increase his offer.
