Elon Musk

SAN FRANCISCO: Twitter, Inc Monday announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by an entity wholly owned by Elon Musk, for $54.20 per share in cash in a transaction valued at approximately $44 billion. 

Upon completion of the transaction, Twitter will become a privately held company. And platitudes and for the media consumption statements notwithstanding, there likely goes any hopes that Twitter will remain a free speech platform (admittedly with multiple lacunae at present).
