After Twitter Rejects Musk Offer, DeSantis and Musk Team Up With A New Strategy – Analyzing America

Reports circulating claim that Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida is stepping in to help Musk takeover the social media platform, which is accused of widespread censorship that fails to provide Americans with the basic right to free speech.

Musk has allies in ownership, which includes the state of Florida. The state is a shareholder in the company through the state’s pension fund. Governor DeSantis has signaled that lawyers are currently looking into what actions he can take to thwart the Twitter board’s “poison pill” effort.

DeSantis announced that a team of lawyers is currently reviewing how the state can hold the Twitter board “accountable for breaching their fiduciary duty.”

Musk used this exact language on Twitter’s platform, warning that the board may soon face legal repercussions for “breaching their fiduciary duty” to Twitter shareholders. Take a look: https://www.analyzingamerica.org/2022/04/655263/
