After acquiring ownership of Twitter Inc, Elon Musk followed through with his promise by firing key executives at Twitter, including the CEO, Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal, general counsel Sean Edgett, and head of legal policy, trust and safety Vijaya Gadde.

The $44billion acquisition of the social media company concludes a long saga that began in April of this year.

Musk changed his bio to “Chief Twit” and changed his location to Twitter HQ, as well as sharing a video of him entering Twitter HQ carrying a porcelain sink. “Let that sink in,” he captioned the post. Earlier today, he tweeted, simply: “the bird is freed.”
