‘May have 2 buy Twitter now’: Does Elon Musk have a new ‘rival’?

Elon Musk may have a ‘rival’ in his attempt to buy Twitter after American rapper Snoop Dogg said ‘may have to buy Twitter now’ on Friday.


Snoop Dogg’s tweet (it was a joke, wasn’t it?) followed Musk saying his $44 billion bid was ‘temporarily on hold pending details of calculation (of) spam/fake accounts…” Tesla and SpaceX founder Musk, the world’s richest man, later re-affirmed his commitment to the acquisition – yet to be approved by shareholders.


“May have 2 buy Twitter now,” Snoop Dogg tweeted and offered his ‘business plan’ for the social media giant, which includes free internet on airplanes because (of course) ’29 dollars for 1 hour is b***sh*t’ and a blue tick mark (indicating a verified user handle) for (well, almost) everyone.

“First line of business. Free internet on airplanes!!! 29 dollars for 1 hour is b***sh*t. Everyone gets a blue checkmark. Even tha bots with 10 letters in their name that hit you in DMs n just say ‘Hello’. Nah f**k those bots.”

The rapper’s new ‘board of directors’ made for interesting reading too!

“Gonna replace the board of directors with Jimmy from my corner Fish Fry; Tommy Chung and tha guy with the ponytail on CNBC.”

‘Tha guy with ponytail’, by the way, has said ‘I am all in’.

Pete Najarian, a former American football player and co-founder of investor guidance firm Market Rebellion, was speaking on CNBC’s Halftime Report.

“Hey Snoop Dogg, sounds like Pete Najarian is interested. Our DMs are open;” the show later tweeted with a clip of the exchange.

On Musk’s ‘temporarily’ stalled bid, the billionaire announced Saturday that his team will conduct a ‘random sampling’ of 100 followers of Twitter’s own account on the social media platform.

“To find out, my team will do a random sample of 100 followers of @twitter. I invite others to repeat the same process and see what they discover…”

“The bots are very angry at being counted.”


All of this was days after the South African-born entrepreneur said one of his priorities – if and when he does buy Twitter – will be to remove ‘spam bots’.

Twitter Inc. shares tumbled after Musk tweeted that takeover was ‘on hold’.
