As you may know by now, Elon Musk has purchased 9% of Twitter, making him the largest shareholder to date.
Over the past few weeks, Elon has been lashing out at Twitter and hosting online polls, asking people if they think Twitter is politically biased, and suppressing free speech.
So, it’s clear that Elon is up to something.
However, what people need to keep in mind is that the shares Elon holds are “passive.”
Passive investing means buying a security to own it long-term. Unlike active traders, passive investors do not seek to profit from short-term price fluctuations or market timing.
A passive investor is one who does not participate in the day-to-day decisions of running a company. In partnerships, such investors may be deemed limited partners rather than general partners.
So, even though Elon is the largest shareholder, he’s not in a position to make decisions in the day-to-day going’s on at Twitter and to go from “passive” to “active” takes some work. It’s kind of like a “coup.”
However, according to Fox Business reporter Charlie Gasparino, anyone who thinks Elon will remain “passive,” doesn’t understand how the billionaire operates.
Here’s what Charlie said in a recent tweet:
“Anyone who thinks @elonmusk is going to be a passive investor doesn’t know the man. My bet is he tries to force Twitter to accept more diverse views and stop censoring conservatives”

Well, let’s hope Charlie is right.
Here’s what people online are saying:
“Hopefully Musk will use his stake to end Twitter’s Orwellian censorship of half the country, rather than something like forcing Twitter’s data center to go solar using panels and batteries from Musk’s other companies.”
“It’s a real shame they have to be forced into doing the right thing.”
“Credit where credit is due. I agree with Charlie’s analysis.”
“I am on my 16th Twitter Account! I am so happy that Musk is getting involved. I have been canned more than Tuna…..”
“Elon puts his money where his mouth. He doesn’t F around.”
“No point starting another one. Just get the censorship of alternative narratives and ideas out of twitter. “
We’ll see what happens.
Will the new majority shareholder return freedom of speech to Twitter?
It will require courage bc the regime is heavily investing in a certain industry and threats will undoubtedly come.
Yet the freedom of speech restored will enable us all to defeat them.@elonmusk

The other school of thought is that Elon bought the 9% shares to increase the stock, and will sell it for a profit and call it a day.
Either way, we should know in pretty short time what his plans are.
However, you can imagine that if he goes through with this bold Twitter move, and he takes away this powerful social media weapon from the Regime, he will be the new #1 target for the Deep State.
Lord help him…
