(LifeSiteNews) – Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, has made an offer to buy 100 percent of Twitter.
Musk is willing to pay $54.20/share, which would amount to a more than $40 billion purchase.
He posted a cryptic tweet just after 7:00 on Thursday, sharing a link to his offer through the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Bloomberg News reported that Musk offered to “acquire all of the outstanding Common Stock of the Issuer not owned by the Reporting Person for all cash consideration valuing the Common Stock at $54.20 per share.”
The SEC filing included a copy of a note Musk wrote to Twitter Chairman of the Board Bret Taylor where he explained his reasons for the move.
“I invested in Twitter as I believe in its potential to be the platform for free speech around the globe, and I believe free speech is a societal imperative for a functioning democracy,” he wrote.
“However, since making my investment I now realize the company will neither thrive nor serve this societal imperative in its current form. Twitter needs to be transformed as a private company… Twitter has extraordinary potential. I will unlock it.”
The entire country has seen what happens when men enter women's sports.
Lia Thomas is a biological male, but he was nonetheless allowed swim against elite female competitors to win an NCAA Freestyle competition, much to the disappointment of those women who had trained so hard to compete.
SIGN THE PETITION TO BAN MALES FROM WOMEN'S SPORTS TODAY
Males have a natural advantage over females in the vast majority of sports, so allowing them to enter women's sports can:
- crush the motivation of the biological girls who have worked hard to compete on a level playing field
- put females into harm's way in contact sports and locker rooms
- deprive women of their right to fairly compete for college scholarships and many other accolades
We all know the spectacle of Lia Thomas defeating those female swimmers was a charade, a mockery of women's sports, but now it's time to do something about it.
Please SIGN this urgent petition calling on members of Congress to pass a law banning the participation of biological males in women's sports.
This is not just about ensuring biological girls and women can compete fairly and win in their chosen sports, but it's also a major safety issue in contact sports and the dangerous use of women's locker rooms by gender-confused males.
Some of you will remember Fallon Fox, the male MMA fighter who claimed to be a woman and left his female opponent concussed and with a fractured skull.
Fox later announced on social media that he enjoys "smacking up" women who "talk transphobic nonsense."
Any reasonable person knows men shouldn't compete against women, but some people are too politically correct to take a stand and protect girls and women from this madness.
It's now time to join the growing pushback against the gender-confused lobby and their dangerous beliefs that have literally left some female competitors in the hospital.
Please SIGN this common sense petition calling on Congress to ban all males from competing in women's sport.
Future generations will look back with gratitude on those who stood on the right side of history, defending women from these very confused males.
Nothing less than a federal ban on biological males forcing their way into women's sport is enough, so this petition will be sent to all members of Congress demanding legislative action.

Musk is the largest share holder in the company and his offer “to buy 100% of Twitter” follows an April 11 report that Musk was not joining the Board.
He also wrote in his SEC filing that the $40 billion offer is his “best and final offer, and if it is not accepted [he] would need to reconsider [his] position as a shareholder.”

Liberals have expressed dismay over Musk’s involvement in Twitter because of his commitment to freedom of speech. They have expressed concerns that he would reinstate former President Donald Trump and allow dissenting voices to flourish on the platform.
Musk was born in Pretoria, South Africa, to which conservative commentator Matt Walsh alluded when he joked on Twitter about the billionaire’s Big Tech move:
If Elon Musk buys Twitter, he will be the first African American to own a major social media platform. This is a great day for diversity. Another glass ceiling shattered!

So far it is not certain if the offer will be accepted. However, Twitter has released a statement saying: “The Twitter Board of Directors will carefully review the proposal to determine the course of action that it believes is in the best interest of the Company and all Twitter stockholders.”
