The official announcement of the takeover deal’s completion is expected on Friday.
Twitter will be delisted from the New York Stock Exchange beginning on Oct. 28, according to a recent delisting notice, as the firm will be taken private.
Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal and CFO Ned Segal have been fired, according to multiple media reports.
Musk tweeted “The bird is freed” late Thursday night, and then “let the good times roll” a few hours later. 🎶 let the good times roll 🎶 — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 28, 2022 The purchase brings to an end an unusual corporate takeover fight that has been a roller coaster ride for nearly seven months.
Musk shared a video of himself on Wednesday walking into Twitter headquarters carrying a sink, tweeting “let that sink in.” He also changed his social network bio to “Chief Twit.”
Before Musk arrived at the San Francisco-based headquarters, CNN obtained an email that was sent to all staff members.
“As you’ll soon see or hear, Elon is in the SF office this week meeting with folks, walking the halls, and continuing to dive in on the important work you all do. If you’re in SF and see him around, say hi! For everyone else, this is just the beginning of many meetings and conversations with Elon, and you’ll all hear directly from him on Friday.”
But the celebratory nature after a seven-month battle between the billionaire entrepreneur and the social media corporation might end prematurely as “he’ll still have plenty of hard work ahead,” says Jason […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
