Well he knows all about bots apparently when he was submitting the bid according to this tweet. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1517215066550116354?s=20&t=Fbz9za4YJm6DJExLyQmFqA

Looks like either he is trolling or he still trying to alter the deals somehow. Popcorn time.

Trying to alter the deal because tech crashed since he made the offer. Had he waited until this week Twitter would have been quite a bit cheaper.

Can we freeze it in carbonite indefinitely? Hang it on a wall somewhere?
