The odyssey to buy Twitter

For this, Kathaleen McCormick, chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery, gave Musk until October 28 to finish the deal or face trial.

In a tweet, Musk mentioned: “I wanted to reach out personally to share my motivation for acquiring Twitter. There has been a lot of speculation about why I bought Twitter and what I think about advertising. Most of it has been wrong.”

There is currently a great danger that social media will split into far-right and far-left echo chambers that generate more hate and divide our society.”
