April 28, 2022 (New Delhi): Elon Musk surprised everyone after taking full control of world’s most famous social media platform and microblogging site Twitter. After snagging Twitter for 44$ billion in a bizarre hostile takeover on Monday, Tesla founder Elon Musk has announced his new target which is Coca Cola Company.
In yet another eccentric tweet, newfound Twitter owner Musk today said that he planned to buy Coca-Cola next “to put the cocaine back in”. After he tweeted this, Musk posted a screenshot of a previous tweet where he said “Now I’m going to buy McDonald’s and fix all the ice cream machines,” and jokingly responded to himself with “Listen I can’t do miracles ok”.
After finalising the Twitter Bid, Elon Musk had also paid 978$ Million to the Former CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey. Also the intial CEO, Parag Agrawal also got some hefty amount of momeny from the Tesla Chief. Musk also polled Twitter users in the past, asking if he should sell 10% of his Tesla stock in order to pay for unrealized capital gains, following which he sold off nearly $7 billion in Tesla shares when over 57% of poll participants voted in support of his suggestion. Coca Cola’s soft drink is named for its two primary ingredients: kola nuts and coca leaves. While kola nuts are a source of caffeine, coca leaves are the base from which the psychoactive drug cocaine is extracted.
