We’ve known that SBF, the former billionaire and former FTX CEO, had come up as a possible partner in Musk’s Twitter acquisition. Musk has since distanced himself from SBF, but according to Semafor, Musk also took his money:
He texted Bankman-Fried just after midnight and invited him to roll the $100 million stake he had owned for a few months into a privately held Twitter.
That $100 million was also reportedly part of SBF’s effort to buy Twitter himself. Which would be the only alternative version of the Twitter story more wild than the real one.
