LEAKED TEXTS: Elon Musk Backed Out Of Twitter Deal Because Of ‘WORLD WAR III’ Worries?

Twitter alleged that Tesla CEO Elon Musk pulled out of the deal with the company because of buyer’s remorse, rather than concern with bot accounts. Briahna Joy Gray and Robby Soave break it down. #Twitter #ElonMusk #tesla

  1. During the 2016 campaign, I saw alphabetical rows of bots being put out by Clinton to attack her opponents exactly at the same time like the swarm Brianna mentions.

  2. I just joined Twitter for the first time in my life 4 days ago I am now done with Twitter. Those 4 days of Twitter gave me a reason to consider suicide. That's how bad it is. I'm never returning to Twitter again.

  3. Batya read my comment and stole my prediction way back when he announced his attempt to buy it. Ahahahha please she did not predict it! Hahahaha! I thought she was just a journalist when did she learn to read markets and economic manipulation? Hahaha

  4. Can Elon's investors and shareholders sue Twitter? Of course, they can… heard of inside trading? Insider trading is the trading of a public company's stock or other securities (such as bonds or stock options) based on material, nonpublic information about the company. In various countries, some kinds of trading based on insider information is illegal. This is why Twitter never give him full key or access to server; but he gets to see cheap twitter source code. So, that's a scam buy outs….

  5. If he doesn't buy it, he loses 1 billion. He cashed out a lot of stock, to cover his stake in the bid and acquisition of Twitter, so, that would lead to the 1 billion dollar being the cost of doing business, which he could probably write off, as well as any legal costs, so….

  6. Wow…Robby’s take is unbelievably beyond inane. So so dumb. He has merely requested for the bot info which they refuse to provide lol. It’s the EASIEST THING IN THE WORLD TO SEE. He’s not manipulating the stock lol. Wake up. This one’s easy and you STILL manage to miss it.

  7. You'd hope someone who (rightly) argued for how important free speech was to a society & the world, would want a free speech platform to exist during a World War. History shows us governments clamp down on civil liberties & free speech whenever there's a major world conflict. A potential WW3 is more a reason to secure a platform for free, uncensored discourse, than to abandon such a thing.

  8. Before I've got banned from Twitter I had more than 5,000 followers and I am just a regular lefty. However, the more followers you get, the more eyes and trolls you attract to your account and eventually get attacked and mass reported.

  9. It seemed to me that Elon began to realize the giant hassle that running Twitter would be for nothing in return. Save free speech? He got all the branding points for just saying that's what he wanted to do, without the need to actually do the work and potentially fail. So why go through with it when you got all the branding points already for a company that's not profitable.

  10. The stupidity of you people is baffling everyone in the comments is just glancing over the fact that he said world war 3 is so high of a potential that he decided not to buy a company what do you people feel to realize is there is no potential in world war III it's already going on it has been going on for 7 months and none of you seem to understand the reason he didn't buy Twitter because there's going to be no electricity there'll be no phones the UK and most of Europe face an 80% energy rise so if you live in the UK your energy bill on October 1st is going to go from whatever it is to plus 80% nobody can afford this so no one will have electricity they'll be riots in the street chaos and pandemonium and the other collapses society it's like you people don't realize this at all like is there a brain cell amongst any of you watching this s*** for 7 months we were talking about power blackouts almost a year ago now and Fox News and CNN are just now starting to realize it it's unbelievable all of you are completely f*** there's no time left to do anything there was time months ago but it's too late now good f**** luck in the apocalypse guys I tried
