Is Elon Musk ready to sell Twitter? Here’s what he had to say
Elon Musk admitted the Twitter headline was “very painful” and a rollercoaster ride. “It’s not boring. It’s a roller coaster,” he said during an interview with the BBC, broadcast live on Twitter Space.
The billionaire businessman said he was open to selling Twitter if he found the right buyer. However, he won’t agree to sell the microblogging site for the $44 billion he bought it for in October.
Musk said he thought buying the microblogging site was the right thing to do, even though running the company was difficult.
Musk said he sometimes had to sleep in the office due to the workload.
He said that the current number of 8,000 employees has reduced to 1,500.
Also, the Twitter CEO said he did not know what happened when Twitter removed content related to a BBC documentary critical of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The government asked Twitter in January to block more than 50 tweets linking to the documentary’s video.
“The rules in India for appearing on social media are very strict and we cannot go beyond the laws of the country,” Musk said, adding, “If we know our people will go to jail or comply with it. With laws, we will comply with laws.”
