I got a board seat – he said no
Musk’s offer comes just a week and a half after it was first announced that he had bought a 9.2% stake in Twitter.
That same week, the company invited Musk to become a member of the company’s board of directors. He later refused, leading to speculation that he might buy more of the company.
The reason is that in the original board seat bid, it was revealed that Musk was not allowed to own more than 14.9% of Twitter shares for the entire time he was sitting on the board.
Musk has been very active in communicating about Twitter on Twitter in recent weeks. Among other things, he suggested that the company’s main office in San Francisco should be rebuilt to become a homeless shelter.
He also insisted on Twitter that they should get a “change” button, something the company later said they were working on.
In the new year, the Norwegian Petroleum Fund owned 0.89 percent of the shares in Twitter, which at that time amounted to NOK 2.7 billion. As of Wednesday evening, Twitter’s share is up 18 percent over the new year.
