From The Hollywood Reporter:

Elon Musk Offers to Buy Twitter for $43.4 Billion
Elon Musk has made an offer to buy Twitter in a deal that values the social media giant at $43.4 billion.

In a “best and final” offer that Musk sent via text message to Twitter board chair Bret Taylor, he wrote that “since making my investment, I now realize the company will neither thrive nor serve this societal imperative in its current form. Twitter needs to be transformed as a private company.”

He added: “Twitter has extraordinary potential. I will unlock it.”

And, if they do not accept the offer, he dumps his existing shares and opens up his own site.  Betting that is already in the wings waiting to go live. To paraphrase a classic:

I felt a great disturbance in the Internet. As if millions of voices cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

The wailing and lamentation of the liberals will be sweet music to my ears.
