Liberal heads are exploding in the San Francisco office of Twitter headquarters.
Twitter confirmed that Elon Musk has announced a $41 billion hostile takeover of the company. And that is not sitting well with many of the social media giant’s woke employees.
Haraldur Thorleifsson, an upper level manager at Twitter tweeted out to Musk, “Just go to therapy dude.”
Miguel Barreto, a senior software engineer, tweeted, “I may have to rethink my employment if that actually happens.”
Objective reporting for the educated American.
These were just a few of the many sarcastic and angry tweets posted by the army of left-wing Twitter employees.
Twitter offered a public statement this morning 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.”
The Tesla billionaire made it clear that his bid of $54.20 was his best and final offer. He also posted that “If it is not accepted, I would need to reconsider my position as a shareholder.”
Many shareholder are hoping that Musk will raise his offer for billions more. Musk’s comment suggests that a higher offer will not come, meaning that if the deal doesn’t happen, he might sell his stock, further depressing the stock price, something current shareholder do not want.
While many other social media company stocks have soared in recent years, Twitter stock has floundered. It’s user base has also stagnated. Some analysts and conservative activists have noted that its lagging popularity might be precisely because conservative speech has been censored.
Nonetheless, many of Twitter’s woke employees want nothing to do with Musk and his encouragement for more freedom of speech.
A few days ago, Musk bluntly suggested that the company’s San Francisco based headquarters building should be shut down and turned into housing for the homeless, because so few employees even show up for work any more.
Menotti Minutillo, a privacy engineer at Twitter posted “First day of my PTO” (suggesting that he doesn’t want to show up for work).
Ian Brown, a former employee at Twitter commented, “Every clown out there thinks they can drive the clown car better than the clowns currently behind the wheel.”
Ian may soon find out that Musk is no ordinary clown. Musk’s takeover offer reflects a 38 percent premium to the closing price of Twitter’s stock on April 1, the day before he publicly announced his 9.2% stake in the company. If current shareholders get greedy and refuse Musk’s offer, there is the potential for Musk to walk away and have the stock price collapse.
Regardless of what happens in the weeks ahead, it will definitely be fascinating to watch.
