Tesla CEO Elon Musk says the economic interests of Twitter’s board of directors and shareholders are out-of-line. In a series of tweets, Musk suggested his fight with Twitter executives may be a ploy to ward off a larger clash with Musk and another potential bidder.
Wow, with Jack departing, the Twitter board collectively owns almost no shares! Objectively, their economic interests are simply not aligned with shareholders.

This was in response to a tweet stressing Musk would be fighting with a gang of highly educated board members over who gets to own the company. He pointed out that all board members, excluding the company’s departing founder Jack Dorsey, own less than 1 percent of Twitter.
This comes as the media has long sought to deter Musk from buying the social media giant. One America’s Daniel Baldwin has more.
