The pre-market prices of Twitter’s shares skyrocketed by double-digits as news emerged that Tesla’s CEO had acquired a 9.2% passive stake in the social media platform. Interestingly, Dogecoin’s price also soared once the news broke.

  • According to a filing to the Securities and Exchange Commission, Elon Musk has taken a 9.2% passive stake in Twitter as of March 14. Ahead of the news coming out, this stake was worth nearly $3 billion.
  • More specifically, this means that he now owns 73,486,936 shares of the social media giant. Once reports started emerging about this news, the pre-market prices of TWTR soared by 25%, from $39.31 (close price on Friday) to nearly $50.
  • Interestingly, Musk criticized Twitter for its lack of transparency and free speech on March 26 – meaning after he had purchased the shares. At the time, he also dabbled with building a new platform.

  • As with almost everything even remotely connected to Elon Musk, the price of Dogecoin also felt the effects.
  • Dogecoin traded around $0.14 before it shot up by double-digits to an intraday high of almost $0.16 shortly after the news broke out.
