Woke up to the surprising news that Elon Musk owned 9.2% of Twitter. I am sure there ate a lot of Twitter employees that are more surprised than I was. Elon is a s**t poster on Twitter, often trolling people. I was surprised that he bought Twitter because he seemed to not like the company very much and thought about starting his own company to compete with Twitter.
Elon Musk did not Tweet about buying the company, people found out by reading his 13G filing . Every company or investor has to fill out these forms to the SEC if they manage over 100 million dollars. That number has not been raised in forty years, which is crazy. Everyone from Warren Buffet to Elon Musk has to report the stocks they buy and that is public information, so anyone can look up what Elon Musk and Warren Buffet own.
Since Elon has over 100 million in stocks, we can see the stocks that Elon owns. According to SEC filings. Elon owns Twitter ( TWTR ), Tesla Motors (TSLA), and SolarCity stock, with Twitter being the only stock he owns in a company he did not start himself.
- Elon Musk has 80.4 million Twitter followers.
- Twitter jumped 28% after the news of Elon buying stock came out.
- Elon Musk is friends with Jack Dorsey the founder of Twitter.
At the end of the day, let's be real. Elon will influence Twitter even if he is not running the company. Elon Musk is the largest shareholder in Twitter, and when the largest shareholder calls up the company or tweets something about Twitter, you can be sure they are going to be listening to him. I think, at least for Elon, the best thing about owning 9.2% of Twitter, means he will never get kicked off of Twitter.
