Elon Musk now wants to invest less of his own money in acquiring Twitter. Billionaire in talks with investors

Elon Musk is in talks with major investment firms and wealthy individuals to secure additional funding to buy Twitter Inc for $44 billion while putting a smaller portion of his fortune into the deal, according to Reuters.

Musk is the richest person in the world with a fortune of about $245 billion, most of which is tied to Tesla shares. Musk revealed last week that he had sold $8.5 billion worth of Tesla stock after agreeing to buy Twitter.

The new funding, which could be in the form of preferred or common stock, could cut Musk’s $21 billion cash contribution, the sources said. Musk also pledged some of his Tesla shares to banks to arrange a $12.5 billion margin loan to fund the deal. According to one of the sources, he may try to reduce the size of the margin loan, based on the interest of a new investor in financing the deal.

Large investors such as private equity firms, hedge funds and high net worth individuals are in talks with Musk to provide preferred equity financing for the acquisition. The sources added that Apollo Global Management Inc (APO.N) and Ares Management Corp (ARES.N) are among private equity firms in talks to provide funding.

Musk was also in talks with some of Twitter’s major shareholders about the possibility of including their stake in the deal, one source said. One of the sources added that former Twitter chief executive and current board member Jack Dorsey, who backed Musk, could be on the case.

Musk tweeted that he would try to keep as many investors on Twitter as possible by taking the company private.

Get your tinfoil hats out how much more Windows 11

Many have heard claims that Windows 11 is heavily “spying” on users. As a recent YouTube video on The PC Security Channel shows, Windows 11 does send massive amounts of data to its own and third-party servers.

Worst of all, the OS does this before the user even installs or opens their first app. The author of the channel used the Wireshark application to analyze network activity on two “clean” versions of Windows.

The first was the brand new Windows 11, and the second was the good old Windows XP. A quick analysis revealed that Windows 11 connects to many third-party servers and services, most of which do nothing but track for ads. And it’s worth noting that all of these actions take place on every Windows 11 computer out of the box, without prompting the user and before he tries to use the Internet.
