Tweet Tweet! Is It Possible That Elon Musk Could Move Twitter to Texas?
What do you do when you have billions and billions of dollars? You spend billions and billions of dollars.
The world's richest person, Elon Musk, has a shiny new toy after buying Twitter for $44 billion.
No doubt Musk is a big fan of Texas. He's brought both Tesla and SpaceX to the Lone Star State, and after purchasing Twitter for $44 billion, many Texans, including Gov. Greg Abbott, are asking Musk to move Twitter to Texas as well.
Musk issued a statement (via Twitter, of course):
Twitter wouldn't be the only social media giant to land in Texas. Meta, formerly known as Facebook, recently announced that they are building an $800 million Hyperscale Data Center in Temple, Texas. This will reportedly bring 100 jobs to the area along with 1,250 construction workers onsite at the peak of the construction.
Twitter's headquarters currently resides in San Francisco, California. San Francisco is one of the most expensive cities in the world not only to live in, but to also do business in, and Elon Musk knows that. The cost of doing business in Texas is cheaper, and Musk knows that as well.
Of course, many believe this is all about politics. Right or wrong, Musk says it's about free speech. Musk's purchase of Twitter has certainly divided opinions once again. Those on the right are ecstatic, while those on the left are deleting their accounts.
So will Elon bring Twitter to Texas? Time will tell, but I wouldn't be surprised!
