Elon Musk Buys 9.2% Stake In Twitter, Microblogging Apps Shares Rise By 26% (Updated: Wednesday, 6th April 2022, 08:34 AM)


The richest man in the world, Elon Musk has bought a 9.2 percent stake in Twitter.

As a result of his purchase, shares of the social media giant soared by about 26% on Monday.

According to Bloomberg, the news was announced in a regulatory statement on Monday, which led to the rise in shares during pre-market trading.

Recall that last week, Musk had announced that he was considering building his own social media platform, criticizing Twitter for not adhering to free speech principles.

He stated this while replying to a Twitter user’s question on whether he would consider building his own social media platform from the ground up.

“Am giving serious thought to this,” Musk had replied.

The Tesla founder had also created a Twitter poll asking his 80+ million followers to vote on whether they believed Twitter adheres to free speech policy as it is essential to a functioning democracy.

About 70% of those that responded voted “no” to which Musk replied that it meant Twitter was undermining democracy.
