Elon Musk is officially the owner of the social media giant Twitter. The deal
was done on Thursday and Musk immediately fired the CEO and CFO of the
company, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Mr. Musk fired Chief Executive Parag Agrawal and Chief Financial Officer
Ned Segal after the deal closed, the people said. Spokespeople for Twitter
didn’t comment. It wasn’t immediately clear who would step into those top positions. CNBC previously reported the firings. Mr. Musk also fired Vijaya
Gadde, Twitter’s top legal and policy executive, and Sean Edgett, general
Now, a new salacious story from Business Insider states Musk and
Ghislaine Maxwell, who was sentenced to 20 years in prison after being
found guilty of sex-trafficking girls for Jeffrey Epstein, had at least one
conversation at an event in 2014.
“The photo was taken in 2014 at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in California,
but it didn’t make a splash on social media until 2020 when Musk took to
Twitter to say he didn’t know Maxwell ‘at all.’ The staffer, who chose to
remain anonymous due to potential repercussions, said the pair also
discussed aliens and Musk brought up his theory that reality could be a
simulation. The photo of the billionaire alongside Maxwell, a known
associate of Jeffrey Epstein, was widely shared on Twitter earlier this year
as well after the billionaire initially offered to buy Twitter for $44 billion in
April,” BI reported.
Coincidentally, the image showed up on Twitter again this week, but the
social media outlet attached a new “context” note as part of Twitter’s new
feature Birdwatch, which aims to curb misinformation on the platform.
“She photo-bombed me once at a Vanity Fair party several years ago,” he
tweeted in July 2020. “Real question is why VF invited her in the first

A tweet featuring the photo had a note at the bottom that said: “The photo
of Musk and Maxwell was captured at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in 2014.
It’s the only picture of the pair. There’s no photo evidence that suggests
they conversed. Musk later responded about the picture and said he didn’t
know Maxwell, and that she ‘photobombed’ him.”
Interestingly enough, Musk went viral a few months ago when he fired a
warning shot at friends and associates of Epstein.
Musk’s remarks came as Epstein’s confidante and fixer, Maxwell, will likely
spend decades in prison.
However, one big thing remains:
What about Jeffrey Epstein’s clients and friends. We know he hung out with
high-powered wealthy men like Bill Clinton and Bill Gates.
Those two and others like Wall Street titan Leon Black are all saying they
had no idea what Jeffrey Epstein was doing and regret giving him the
credibility that came with meeting them.

But is that believable?
“At the time, I didn’t realize that by having those meetings it would be seen
as giving him credibility. You’re almost saying, ‘I forgive that type of
behavior,’ or something. So clearly the way it’s seen, I made a huge mistake
not understanding that,” Microsoft founder and CEO Bill Gates said
His ex-wife, however, did not buy that excuse, talking to CBS’ Gayle King
some weeks ago about their divorce: “It was many things. But I did not like
that he’d had meetings with Jeffrey Epstein. I made that clear to him.”
She went on to say she met Epstein “exactly one time because I wanted to
see who this man was. And I regretted it from the second I stepped in the
door. He was abhorrent. He was evil personified.
