Twitter is trending! On Friday, Elon Musk purchased a large stake in the company. He now owns 9% of their equity market value and posted his opinion on free speech rights for users according to Bloomberg News.

The founder/CEO of Telsa had been one of many people’s highest-profile accounts since he polled his 80+million followers last week—and announced plans with them through 2020 by way of a survey–to see what they thought regarding transparency within
The Twitter stocks of Elon Musk were worth $2.89 billion on Friday, but now they may be more than twice that amount due to his investment in the company!
