According to the WSJ, a Saudi prince, Larry Ellison, and a bitcoin exchange are among a group of 19 investors who have committed more than $7 billion to back Elon Musk’s bid for Twitter. The biggest contribution comes from Prince al-Waleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia, who agreed to retain his nearly $1.9 billion stake in Twitter following Mr. Musk’s takeover, the disclosure said. The new money cuts Musk’s personal cash investment to under $20 billion.
There has been some speculation that Elon was just messing around with the idea of buying Twitter. As time passes, it looks more and more like it’s going to happen.
