Elon Musk successfully purchases Twitter for $44 billion
One journalist has been kicking himself after a tweet from 2017 saw him suggest to Elon Musk that he should buy Twitter.
The comment from Insider’s Dave Smith has since gone viral on the social media platform after the Tesla and SpaceX founder did just that on Monday, purchasing the bird app for the small price of around $44bn.
Resharing the conversation yesterday, Mr Smith wrote: “This exchange continues to haunt me.”
We don’t doubt that for one second, Dave.
In the interaction, Musk can be seen saying “I love Twitter”, to which Mr Smith replied: “You should buy it then.”
Perhaps a sign of what was to come, Musk responded: “How much is it?”
