Elon Musk's Twitter Motives
William D. Cohan joins Peter to explain why Elon Musk spent 1% of his net worth, or nearly $3 billion, to become Twitter's largest individual shareholder. Is he out to gobble up the company? Does he want to let Trump back on the platform? Or is he just thrilled to make $800 million for passively owning the stock for a few days. Hint: all the above and more. Then, Tina Nguyen stops by to explain how Musk’s free speech takeover could drive Trump out of the social media business—and back onto Twitter, itself.
