By now, everyone knows that SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk had acquired the social media giant ‘Twitter’ for a whopping $44 billion, paying $54.20 per share, and all of it in cash.
Days after buying the micro-blogging site, Musk revealed what he wants next. The billionaire announced that he would soon buy Coca-Cola to put the ‘cocaine back in’.
He tweeted, “Next I’m buying Coca-Cola to put the cocaine back in.”
Soon after, the Tesla CEO posted a screenshot of a previous tweet where he said “Now I’m going to buy McDonald’s and fix all the ice cream machines,” and jokingly responded to himself with “Listen I can’t do miracles ok”.
Earlier this month, Elon acquired a 9.2 per cent stake in Twitter. This made him the second-biggest shareholder in the company, the first one being Vanguard with 10.3 per cent stake. Later, he offered a massive amount to buy 100% shares in the company. After evaluating Musk’s offer for the past several weeks, the board members of Twitter finally took the deal.
