Elon Musk Makes $43 Billion Offer for Twitter

Elon Musk’s $43 billion offer to buy Twitter — which was made public on Thursday — was first made in a 281-character message to the company. Twitter’s character limit for a tweet is 280.

“As I indicated this weekend, I believe that the company should be private to go through the changes that need to be made. After the past several days of thinking this over, I have decided I want to acquire the company and take it private. I am going to send you an offer letter tonight, it will be public in the morning. Are you available to chat?” according to an SEC filing.
