After months of legal back-and-forth, Elon Musk now owns Twitter. On Thursday night, Musk closed his $44 billion deal to buy the social media platform. A number of top executives, including CEO Parag Agrawal and CFO Ned Segal, have been fired, according to multiple outlet reports.
Agrawal and Segal were in Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters when the deal closed and were escorted out, Reuters reported. Musk plans to become Twitter’s CEO following the acquisition.

Before closing the deal, Elon Musk walked into Twitter’s headquarters on Wednesday with a porcelain sink, subsequently tweeting “let that sink in.”
Musk changed his Twitter profile description to “Chief Twit.”
“Twitter obviously cannot become a free-for-all hellscape, where anything can be said with no consequences!” Musk also said on Thursday. “Twitter aspires to be the most respected advertising platform in the world that strengthens your brand and grows your enterprise,” he added.
