What happens next as Twitter reviews Musk’s offer?

Two weeks ago, Elon teased plans to create a new social media platform after criticizing Twitter for promoting censorship and propaganda.

The board reviews the offer.

The board will consult with its advisers at Goldman Sachs to review Musk’s offer. They will have to consider whether the deal fairly values the company, and whether Musk has the assets to do the deal.

The board announces its decision.

The board will likely take a few days to review the offer, and announce a decision as early as this Friday.

Other suitors make offers.

Musk’s latest activity has heightened interest in Twitter’s openness to a deal. While some private equity firms may be critical of Twitter’s limited cash flow, a number of technology companies have been looking to acquire Twitter since it’s early days.
