Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has reportedly put the next stage of his bid to take over Twitter into action, which he previously dubbed his “ Plan B .”
Musk has now entered into talks with investors about joining his bid to purchase the social media platform after the Twitter Board of Directors enacted a “ poison pill ” to try and stop the takeover.
According to the New York Post , sources familiar with the matter revealed the partnership could be announced in a matter of days.
Musk initiated a bid to take over the social media giant earlier this week with an offer of $54.20 per share for all of Twitter’s shares, a bid worth more than $40 billion.
He made the move after revealing that he’d bought a staggering 9.2% of the company, making him the largest shareholder.
Sources told the Post that one of Musk’s partners could be Silver Lake Partners.
Musk has worked with the company in the past and it is co-run by one of the members of Twitter’s board of directors.
As the New York Post reported: One possibility, the sources said: teaming with private-equity firm Silver Lake Partners, which was planning to co-invest with him in 2018 when he was considering taking Tesla private. Silver Lake’s Co-CEO Egon Durban is a Twitter board member and led Musk’s deal team during the 2018 failed effort to take Tesla private, sources said. Silver Lake declined to comment. News of Musk’s strategizing comes after the Twitter board inserted a “poison pill” in its bylaws to stave off Musk’s hostile takeover, as Slay News first reported Friday.The Twitter board passed a shareholder rights plan on Friday that would allow board members to purchase additional stock at a discount if a single entity purchases a total of at least 15% of Twitter’s stock.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
