I Prayed have prayed
Father, we pray that You would protect free speech in our country, even online. If Your will is to accomplish this through Elon Musk, God, then we pray that he would succeed and flourish in his endeavors.

Following his acquisition of just under 10% of Twitter, Elon Musk has offered to buy the company for a staggering 43 billion.

From CNBC. Elon Musk offered to buy Twitter for $54.20 a share in a filing published Thursday, saying the social media company needs to be transformed privately, a little over a week after revealing a 9.1% stake in the company. Musk’s offer values Twitter at about $43 billion.
