Elon Musk wants to buy Twitter

Twitter

So Elon Musk, whom I think has never managed to outgrow puberty, wants to buy Twitter.[4] At the Wall Street Journal, Dan Gallagher thinks Musk’s offer is too low.[5] At Puck News, William D. Cohan thinks the offer is (at least) “fair” and, further, that Musk’s threat to dump the shares he now already owns would depress the price dramatically.[6]

I’m out of my depth. I can’t tell you who is right, or if, in fact, either of them are. What I will tell you is that I rather very strongly suspect that either of these gentlemen has put more thought into Musk’s offer than Twitter shareholders have or will. That leaves me to suspect that, given the chance, they’ll take the money and run.
