Oops, he did it again!
Ultra-provocateur Elon Musk showed the left up once again, chiefly by agreeing to sit on Twitter’s board after becoming the largest shareholder in the company …only to rescind this decision abruptly over the weekend.
Needless to say, the decision has left the Twitter community reeling in fear, especially since Musk abdicating a seat on the Twitter board entails effectively legal abandonment of a prior agreement he’d signed with Twitter.
Specifically, in order to sit on Twitter’s board, Musk had to sign a “standstill” agreement, which stated that he could not purchase more than 14.9 percent of Twitter’s total stock, nor could he attempt to take over the company.
However now that Musk has opted not to sit on Twitter’s board after all, he is effectively free to take a number of different actions that make leftwing fanatics at Twitter quite nervous, especially in light of the Tesla CEO’s proclamation that he is a “free speech absolutist.”
Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal promptly released a statement following the weekend’s wild events, warning of more “distractions” ahead while also trying to assure various stakeholders that the highly divisive social media platform remains under control.
“Elon has decided not to join our board,” Agrawal writes, “the board and I had many discussions about Elon joining the board, and with Elon directly. We were excited to collaborate and clear about the risks.”
Clearly, Musk realized that Twitter’s idea of “collaboration” means their (leftist) way or the highway, which is likely why he decided not to waste his time.
The company itself implied as much, especially since it declared Musk would have been tasked with acting in the so-called “best interests” of the company.
“We also believed that having Elon as a fiduciary of the company where he, like all board members, has to act in the best interests of the company and all our shareholders, was the best path forward, [so] the board offered him a seat,” Agrawal continued.
Yeah. A seat with serious strings, in all likelihood, especially with regards to conservative speech.
Which is likely why Musk pulled out in a hurry.
“We announced on Tuesday that Elon would be appointed to the Board contingent on a background check and formal acceptance,” Agrawal proclaimed, “Elon’s appointment to the board was to become officially effective 4/9, but Elon shared that same morning that he will no longer be joining the board. I believe this is for the best.”
Ironically, it just may be for the best, especially if Elon succeeds in taking over Twitter entirely.
Imagine a world free of AOC’s constant preaching on Twitter, when she isn’t busy partying mask-less at endless bars in Miami or cavorting in a $35,000+ “Tax the Rich” gown designed by a tax dodging designer at the Met gala in New York, all in the name of being a so-called “public servant.”
Imagine a world free of self-indulgent, self-righteous snowflakes who treat Twitter as their personal megaphone are no longer able to promulgate the hate around the world.
Imagine a world where the primary weapon of choice amongst the “cancel mob” is removed, thereby eliminating a broad swathe of social ills in one swoop.
Yes, it indeed is “for the best” that Musk is not going to sit on Twitter’s board.
Why have a seat on the board, when you just might be able to remake the board …
