The stock market and Twitter were electrified after billionaire Elon Musk bought a 9.2 percent stake in the social media company and he has now been added to Twitter’s board of directors with the company’s leftist CEO claiming to be “excited” over the development.

After the news broke that Musk had joined the board of directors for Twitter, stocks jumped more than 6 percent on Tuesday, according to CNBC. Many Americans are hopeful that Musk will restore freedom of speech to the social media platform.

“Through conversations with Elon in recent weeks, it became clear to us that he would bring great value to our Board,” CEO Parag Agrawal proclaimed in a tweet on Tuesday.

“He’s both a passionate believer and intense critic of the service which is exactly what we need on Twitter, and in the boardroom, to make us stronger in the long-term,” he stated, not mentioning that Musk now owns the biggest percentage of stock in the company.

Musk responded to Agrawal’s ‘excitement’ by letting him know he has plans.

“Looking forward to working with Parag & Twitter board to make significant improvements to Twitter in coming months!” he teased in a tweet.

Agrawal is a known leftist who has been criticized as an open opponent to free speech as can be seen in the Fox News clip below:

Musk’s term on the board will reportedly expire in 2024. He will be limited to buying no more than 14.9 percent of Twitter’s common stock outstanding during his tenure on the board and for 90 days following the end of his term.

The billionaire’s purchase of stock comes after heavy criticism of the platform restricting free speech. The Tesla CEO polled users in March on whether he should tackle Twitter over free speech and had been hinting at building his own social media platform.

Interestingly enough, Musk had reached out to Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon before he polled his followers, according to Dillon’s tweet below:

Musk’s big move along with his teases and reactions continues to keep Twitter aflutter:

Though Musk’s stake is considered passive, which normally means he would not be a threat to the control of the company, some investors believe he will be taking a more active role. When his stake in the company was announced Monday, the stock exploded by 27 percent.

Just hours after revealing his holding in the company, Musk got Agrawal’s attention with a poll asking about interest in an edit button.

Agrawal took over from Jack Dorsey in November. Now, Musk could potentially take over for him in essence if not in name.

“We believe Musk joining Twitter will lead to a host of strategic initiatives which could include a range of near-term and long-term possibilities out of the gates for the company still struggling in a social media arms race,” Wedbush analyst Dan Ives told investors. It’s “time to get out the popcorn and watch the developments over the coming months with Musk on the Board.”

Musk is an expert when it comes to using Twitter and he’s an influencer with 80.5 followers. His involvement with the social media platform could reclaim freedom of speech for millions of followers.

  1. I don’t trust Musk, but I would like to see Musk actually make twitter fair for all. I know that’s not expected, because of ALL the Liberal Wacko’s that are employed.

  2. I think Parag Awgwol or what ever his name better find another line of employment. Maybe Facebook is hiring. I see a early exit from Twitter.

  3. Parag better watch his behind or he will soon be out on it. He’ll be fine with his millions so he doesn’t need to look for work. He might however get a job at Disney, Nike or even Adidas. They are wacko radical leftist companies the might like to have a washed up radical leftist in its employ!

    Let’s go Brandon!!!

  4. I will wait before getting too excited about this. Musk is saying all the right things, BUT, he and his girlfriend “Grimes” are not exactly normal people! Grimes just left Musk again to move in with Chelsea (Bradley) Manning! Yes, Bradey Manning the treasonous tranny!

  5. Parag Agrawa, a foreigner, go figure, is simply un-American. Why he’s the CEO of anything larger than a doghouse is a surprise to me

    1. Remember, you can’t fix stupid and American companies are getting really stupid. Just look at Disney, Nike and Adidas. They are in a hurry to go woke and go broke.

  6. There’s a lot of hope ridding on Elon Musk. Maybe a few other billionaires should take the hint a stand-up for the country that enabled them to become billionaires in the first place.

  7. The LEFTISTS will pay HUGE PREMIUMS to BUY more shares than Mr. Musk and drive the prices UP UP UP!! Then Mr. Musk should sell his shares and use his profits to build his OWN PLATFORM and then twit will be nothing but leftists and trolls and therefore, WORTHLESS!!

  8. You liberal pieces of s***can act like you’re excited all you want, but we know you’re f’ing terrified. F’ing filthy s***-stains.

  9. After Parag shamelessly patronized Musk with his lies, he immediately asked the board to limit the amount of stock any one shareholder could own. These libs are so clueless and full of themselves, they actually think we believe their bullshiit.

  10. What amazes me is how the CEO of TWITTER can openly say that they do not follow the First Amendment when TWITTER is one of the largest platforms for speech in our country? How can they not follow the Constitution like every other company or person in the U.S.? I will bet Elon Musk changes this as he is a pretty stand-up guy. Restore free speech to PRESIDENT TRUMP!

  11. HOW the fock did this Commie POS ever get to be the CEO of the company to begin with? If he doesn’t believe in following the Constitution of OUR Country the MAYBE he should go back to whatever SH!THOLE country he came from………..AND I don’t really care if he’s verticle or horizontal when he leaves !!

  12. Parag Agrawal: “Our role is not to be bound by the First Amendment.”

    Interesting choice of words. How is it possible to be “bound” to something that guarantees freedom?

  13. Looks like Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal has been reading Sun Tzu.

    “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer”
    “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”
    “Even the finest sword plunged into salt water will eventually rust.”
