Elon Musk has made the decision to move forward with a takeover of Twitter that would cost $44 billion.

Elon Musk has indicated that he plans to move on with the acquisition of Twitter, the dominant social media platform, using the first offer price of $54.20 per share, Ejes Gist Newspaper reports.

In a letter that was sent to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Elon Musk said that he intends to proceed with the $44 billion acquisition, pending the receipt of the loan funding for the sale.
