精選詞彙播客 Vocab Ep.120: 馬斯克買了Twitter後你會用嗎? What is a tweet ?

· 精選詞彙單元 Vocab,每日跟讀單元 Daily English

Summary:

Elon Musk is speaking to investors who could partner with him on a bid for Twitter, sources close to the matter told The Post.

A new plan that includes partners could be announced within days, those sources said.

One possibility, the sources said: teaming with private-equity firm Silver Lake Partners, which was planning to co-invest with him in 2018 when he was considering taking Tesla private.

In turn, Twitter board of directors adopted a so-called poison pill — a corporate move that prevents Musk from acquiring more than 15% of the company.

But that pill may not stop other entities or people from acquiring their own shares of up to 15% of the company. Those owners could partner with Musk to force a sale, make changes in the executive ranks or push for other overhauls of the company.

Vocabulary:

1. Tweet v. n. A message on Twitter 推特文
