The TwitterMusking and other news • TechCrunch
Here comes the day: Elon Musk owns the Bird app and everything that comes with it. Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of Twitter has been shut down, most of the top officials fired, and he’s now busy figuring out what kind of thing he wanted, then didn’t want at all, and now he’s at least partly forced to spend a fortune on.
This week I talk to Taylor Hatmaker about the new owner of Twitter and what that means. I also spoke to Amanda Silberling about YouTuber MrBeast’s business, and why a $1 billion plus valuation makes us nervous. Additionally, Kirsten Korosec comes to talk about the scoop of the week after she revealed the news of Argo’s closure.
