In the showdown between Twitter and Elon Musk, there is a new revelation that is causing a stir. According to the information circulating, the adviser to Sam Bankman-Fried has made contact with Elon Musk. This, to let him know that Bankman-Fried was “potentially interested” by the takeover of Twitter.
A message for Elon Musk
His name is Will MacAskill and he is the senior adviser to Sam Bankman-Fried. He messaged Elon Musk sometime in March about his collaborator’s interest in Twitter. Here is the content of his message to Mr. Musk: “Hey – I saw your poll on Twitter about Twitter and free speech. I don’t know if that’s what you’re concerned about, but my collaborator Sam Bankman-Fried has been for a while potentially interested in its purchasethen by improving the world”.
In response to the adviser’s request, Musk asked if Bankman-Fried had “huge amount of money”. At the time, in his response, Mr. MacAskil claimed that the co-founder of the FTX exchange had about $24 billion and that he had the possibility of proceeding to the redemption of the social network for a sum of between 8 and 15 billion dollars. Following the conversation between Elon Musk and Will MacAskil, the latter arranged a meeting between Elon Musk and Sam Bankman-Fried.
The contents of the text messages exchanged between Elon Musk and the adviser to Sam Bankman-Fried have been made public as part of the exposure of a series of messages between Mr. Musk and several personalities in different fields. We think for example of Larry Ellison, and the former CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey. All of this information is being released as an active 5 day trial for Elon Musk. Judges ruling on the merits of the case will decide whether or not the billionaire is required to buy Twitter.
The trial that will determine the situation of Elon Musk vis-à-vis the Twitter company will begin soon. In the meantime, a new revelation has been made. We learn that the CEO of Tesla had exchanges by message with Will MacAskil, the adviser to the founder of FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried. The advisor told the billionaire that his collaborator was potentially interested in the idea of buying Twitter.
