This comes days after Twitter moved to defend itself against Elon Musk’s $43 billion “hostile takeover” bid, announcing a plan that would allow shareholders to purchase additional stock.
“The Rights Plan will reduce the likelihood that any entity, person or group gains control of Twitter through open market accumulation without paying all shareholders an appropriate control premium,” Twitter had said in a statement on April 15, 2022.
Musk had in early April bought 9.2 per cent of the company.
