Elon Musk has finally completed the $44 Billion Twitter deal, hence becoming in charge of one of the most influential media on the earth. After agreeing to buy the company in April, Musk spent months getting out of the deal before he finally closed it. After taking the change, Musk fired Twitter’s CEO and other top executives, including Ned Segal, the chief financial officer, and Vijaya Gadde, the head of legal policy, trust, and safety. “The bird is freed,” Musk claimed after closing the deal.

Twitter’s CEO, Parag Agrawal, is Fired
Twitter’s CEO Parag Agrawal, who took on the role in November 2021 after co-founder Jack Dorsey resigned, has been fired from the CEO’s position. Matt Wallace, the DOGE influencer, jokingly talked about becoming the next CEO of Twitter. Matt tweeted, “I am honored to be selected by Elon Musk as the new CEO of Twitter. Will work hard to protect free speech and integrate.” He further asked, “Who should Elon Musk bring back on Twitter that was banned?” Unsurprisingly, the most common answer was ‘Donald Trump.’

Musk said in a statement, “The reason I acquired Twitter is because it is important to the future of civilization to have a common digital town square, where a wide range of beliefs can be debated in a healthy manner, without resorting to violence.” He further added, “There is currently great danger that social media will splinter into far-right wing and far left-wing echo chambers that generate more hate and divide our society.”
Musk Changed his Twitter Bio
The billionaire, Elon Musk, has changed his Twitter bio to ‘Chief Twit’ after acquiring the company. He also documented his entry into the Twitter HQ while carrying a sink; he said, “Entering Twitter HQ – let that sink in!” In an open letter to the advertisers, he said that he wouldn’t let Twitter become a “free-for-all hellscape, where anything can be said with no consequences.”
