But nothing’s changed. As the trial date approaches, the richest man in America still wants to purchase Twitter for the initial asking price of $44 billion. Meanwhile, however Twitter’s stock has surged because of it.

Recently, though, Musk’s proposal to match the original deal terms means Twitter’s future would be under the leadership of a mercurial billionaire who has spent months publicly criticizing its management and questioning its value. It also means that his claims — about how many of Twitter’s users are bots, for instance — are not likely to be scrutinized in a courtroom. Seems like the Tesla knows what he’s doing.
