Will Elon Musk buy Twitter this year?
Jan 1, 2023
Resolves YES if an offer to take Twitter private led by Elon Musk succeeds before the end of 2022. (It is not necessary that Musk provide a majority of the capital.)
Welp, it's about as official as it can get now: https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/elon-musk-to-acquire-twitter-301532245.html https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1518677066325053441
I absolutely love this market. If anyone's curious about the recent spike, see: https://www.reuters.com/technology/exclusive-twitter-set-accept-musks-best-final-offer-sources-2022-04-25/
Matt Levine's latest post in Money Stuff describes in great detail how Twitter board is mitigating Musks's 51% attack by giving everyone else shares at a 50% discount if any shareholder goes over 15% in ownership. Pretty interesting! https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2022-04-18/twitter-has-a-poison-pill-now
