On Monday, Elon Musk strikes a deal to acquire social media giant Twitter for $44 billion. Musk will pay $54.20/ share, with this the deal between Twitter & Elon Musk has become one of the biggest tech acquisitions of all time. Musk has said that he plans to work on free speech & this has sparked debate across the globe about whether this will be a revolution for Twitter or not?

Today, morning the founder of Amazon, Jeff Bezos posted a question asked by NYT reporter Mike Forsythe.

“Apropos of something:

-Tesla’s second-biggest market in 2021 was China (after the US)

-Chinese battery makers are major suppliers for Tesla’s EVs.

-After 2009, when China banned Twitter, the government there had almost no leverage over the platform -That may have just changed, tweeted Forsythe.

Jeff Bezos re-tweeted & wrote “Interesting question. Did the Chinese government just gain a bit of leverage over the town square?”

The ‘town square’ was referred from Elon Musk’s tweet after he acquired Twitter.

The Amazon founder further answered his own question: “My own answer to this question is probably not. The more likely outcome in this regard is complexity in China for Tesla, rather than censorship at Twitter. But we’ll see. Musk is extremely good at navigating this kind of complexity.”
