Why Musk Gave Up the Fight Against Buying Twitter
Updated on

Elon Musk has teased something called “X, the everything app” after he buys Twitter Inc. Based on the billionaire’s past comments, that service could look a lot like Chinese super-app WeChat.

Musk didn’t provide many details beyond a one-line tweet. But the Tesla Inc. impresario has openly admired the Tencent Holdings Ltd. app that’s grown from a messaging service to a mini-internet used daily by more than a billion Chinese.
