(NEW YORK, NY) – Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy feels Tesla CEO Elon Musk has Twitter “by the balls” after making an offer to purchase the social media juggernaut and take it private. Musk’s best and final offer was to pay $54.20 per share for 100% of Twitter, and said that if his offer was not accepted he’d have to reconsider his position as a shareholder, according to an SEC filing. Portnoy, an avid Twitter who often livestreams himself offering his views on Wall Street, took to the platform with thoughts on Musk’s offer.  

So Elon offered 41 billion to buy all of Twitter. Now the Board decides if they want to sell it to him? It’s a no brainer offer and they’d all make a sh‑t ton. The only reason to say no is cause they don’t like him right? Do I have that right? And if they say yes then everybody who owns any twitter stock basically gets cashed out at 54.20 a share and it all goes to Elon,” Portnoy wrote. “That’s wild. “The Barstool Sports founder then followed up, “So maybe it’s not that great an offer. Maybe the Twitter board thinks they are smarter than Elon and can get it to 75 a share. But if they don’t sell the stock price is gonna crash I think. Elon has em by the balls.”
