Elon Musk made a viral debut to the company’s Market Street offices in downtown San Francisco less than 48 hours before he’s scheduled to sign the papers to acquire social media behemoth Twitter.
Musk just decided to seal the $44 billion transaction following a turbulent, multi-month process in which discussions with Twitter’s board deteriorated and ended up in court.
Musk shattered the internet on Wednesday when he posted a video of himself carrying what seems to be a bathroom sink as he walks through Twitter’s main entrance. The video’s simple description said, “Entering Twitter HQ – let it sink in!”

Lavern Spicer, a conservative pundit, tweeted, “My man!!!! I thought you was going to let us down but you did it.” Spicer was alluding to a period in which it looked unlikely that the Musk takeover would occur, given that both sides ultimately balked at the agreement until Twitter finally asked the courts to compel him to follow through.
Musk had developed severe reservations about moving forward with the deal after claiming Twitter had misled him about the number of “bots” currently active on the platform, which reportedly comprised a measurable percentage of the platform’s users — a crucial metric for determining the company’s valuation.
More on this story via The Western Journal:
A judge had finally ruled in early October that Musk had until Oct. 28 to close the deal, and it appears as if the Tesla and SpaceX founder is on schedule.
A Twitter user called Catturd, a mega-popular influencer and critic of Twitter’s history of past censorship, pleaded with Musk to stick to his promise that Twitter will return to its free speech roots. CONTINUE READING…
