Elon Musk is the new owner of Twitter, giving the Tesla billionaire control of one of the world’s most powerful megaphones.

Late Thursday evening, Musk tweeted: “The bird is freed.”

Multiple news outlets reported late Thursday that, after months of legal wrangling and public acrimony, Musk had closed the $44 billion deal and fired top executives including the company’s CEO Parag Agrawal.

Twitter chairman Bret Taylor removed that title from his Twitter bio. 

On Wednesday, Musk changed his Twitter bio to “Chief Twit” shortly before walking into Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters carrying a porcelain sink. “Let that sink in,” he tweeted.
