Elon Musk has offered to buy the whole of Twitter for $41.39billion dollars.

"It's a high price and your shareholders will love it," the billionaire added.

Musk thinks that taking the company private will give more opportunity for free speech on the platform.

Given that his net worth is a cool $282 billion, the offer will barely dent his wallet.
