Elon Musk walks into Twitter with a SINK and Internet walks out with a bucketful of hilarious memes
SAN FRANSICO, CALIFORNIA: After posting a video showing himself bringing a sink into Twitter's San Francisco headquarters, Elon Musk stoked speculation that the deal to acquire the company had been finalized. Twitteratis have blasted the world’s richest man with replies and memes as the social media platform’s new owner aims to sack about 75% of underperforming employees.
Musk posted a trending video on October 26 with the caption: "Entering Twitter HQ – let that sink in!” After a few hours, Musk added another comment to his tweet saying, "Meeting a lot of cool people at Twitter today!," sparking hilarious replies from Twitter users around the world.
Two days before a court-imposed deadline to finalize the $44 billion acquisition, Musk altered his Twitter profile's location to "Twitter HQ" and his biography to "Chief Twit." It happens a day after Musk promised bankers who are helping to finance the acquisition that he would complete the buyout before the end of the week during a video conference call.
The price of Twitter's stock has increased significantly in recent weeks and on October 26 it finished at $53.35 - almost $54.20 a share from the time Musk takeover talks started. The banks, led by Morgan Stanley, have completed putting together the final credit arrangement and are currently finalizing the paperwork, which is one of the last steps in providing $13 billion toward the transaction.
However, the impending agreement coincides with a somber report that claims Twitter has seen an "absolute decline" in users since the outbreak, with "heavy tweeters" comprising less than 10% of accounts. But all the attention has been diverted towards Musk who made his way into the headquarters of his new acquisition as one user wrote, “Please have them turn off all shadow-banning and artificial restrictions placed on our accounts. Thank you." Another one added, "Congrats Chief Twit!"
One user replied to Musk's latest remark about meeting new people by saying, "And saying goodbye at the same time!" Another user was quick to remind the billionaire about the changes that will improve the platform for the users by stating: "Pls make Twitter greater than ever 1. eliminating bots 2. remove thread deletion feature, but editable if any typo and the original post are viewable in history 3. extend the profile/bio length limitation 4. enhance subscription package with more features (non-ads related)." One user responded by asking, "75% of whom you’re about to fire?," to which another replied, "Looks like he is about to throw the kitchen sink at them."
