Elon Musk visits Twitter HQ with a sink & they let him in

SpaceX & Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk posted a video on Wednesday on Twitter where he walks into Twitter headquarters with a white sink in his hand through a lobby area. This was ahead of a Friday deadline to close his 44 billion deal to buy the social media platform.

Musk also changed his Twitter profile to “Chief Twit” and his location to Twitter headquarters in San Francisco. He tweeted, “Entering Twitter HQ – let that sink in!”

Twitter confirmed that Musk’s video tweet was genuine but did not comment further.

The video he posted suggested no proof that the buyout was complete.

Elon Musk consented to buy Twitter in April, but in July, he backed out, sighting World War 3.

He also added that he was ending the deal over concerns about the number of fake and spam bot accounts. Regardless, Twitter declined the claim and responded with a lawsuit against the billionaire in a bid to force the deal to go through.

The court has given both parties until October 28 to work out details after Musk agreed to purchase Twitter for $54.20 a share. If both parties fail to chalk out the points, a trial will take place in November.

The Washington Post noted that Musk told future investors that he plans to cut three-quarters of Twitter’s 7,500 workers when he becomes the company owner. The newspaper cited documents and unnamed sources familiar with the deliberation.

One of Musk’s most significant barriers to closing the deal was keeping in place the financing pledged roughly six months ago.

A group of banks, including Bank of America and Morgan Stanley, signed on earlier this year to loan 12.5 billion of the money Musk needed to buy Twitter and take it private.
