What are Elon Musk's arrangements for Twitter?

Elon Musk turns into Twitter's greatest investor

Mr Musk is the biggest investor in the organization, with multiple times the 2.25% shareholding of Twitter prime supporter Jack Dorsey.

Shares in Twitter took off by over 27% last Monday after Mr Musk's stake was uncovered.

Nonetheless, many Twitter workers have felt disappointed by the declaration that the Tesla CEO had turned into the biggest investor in the organization and was thusly welcome to join the board.

As per organization insiders, there was tension over what sway he would have on the virtual entertainment organization's capacity to direct satisfied from now on.

Twitter's CEO began his assertion with an obscure line.

"This is the very thing I can share… "

Obviously a great deal has happened in the background that he has forgotten about.

The declaration of Elon Musk's arrangement to Twitter's board seemed to satisfy everybody.

Mr Musk appeared to be content, Parag Agrawal tweeted out his endorsement, as twittered's previous supervisor Jack Dorsey.

The arrangement seemed OK for Twitter. Essentially, in return for a board seat, Mr Musk made a deal to avoid purchasing over 14.9% of the organization.

Mr Musk is rich to the point that he would be able, in principle, bear to purchase Twitter by and large, easily truth be told.

His choice to dismiss the proposal of a load up seat currently leaves the entryway open, in the event that he so wishes, to take a much bigger stake in the organization.

Musk is gigantically strong, his riches and capriciousness makes him a perhaps rewarding yet additionally possibly risky financial backer.

He plainly needs to change Twitter. Be that as it may, as a significant investor with no board seat, what he does next is impossible to say.
