Elon Musk Offers to Buy the Rest of Twitter He Does Not Own for Over $54 Billion

 Elon Musk is a trailblazer always on the move

With a new challenge to barriers to free speech remove
Twitter with its algorithms has disguised its censorship of free speech
Of conservative thought and ideas preventing them to the general public reach
Elon Musk is libertarian who believes the way to solve problems is more speech to bring to the table
As opposed to limiting ideas on solutions that are confined to the big government knows best fable
He bought over 9.2 % of Twitter stock which barely put in his net worth a dent
And now offered to buy the rest of the shares for $54.7 billion to be spent
The left already apoplectic with the idea of a libertarian influencing the company to end censorship
Is in a tizzy claiming the end of democracy if social media on the flow of information loses its grip
The board that Musk refused to join will have to meet to consider his offer to buy
Will hire an investment banker to advise on the company’s value and assist in its reply
Suspect the offer will be rejected as being too low
While larger cash rich Hi-Tech companies at Twitter higher bids will bestow
Not sure if Musk would engage in a bidding war to preserve free speech
But when it comes to Musk unpredictability his past acts will teach
If Microsoft, Google, or Apple were to join the bidding fray
Musk whose 9.2% has already risen 27% is looking at a very large payday
Social media should be like a utility open to all to use as long as the use does not advocate violence or violate the law
Banning users or their tweets because of conservative or leftist thought or ideology is fatally flawed
