The South African mogul has been making headlines ever since he announced that he would be buying the social media platform on April 26.
Several streaming personalities and internet influencers reacted to the mega acquisition and provided their take on it.
One such take was from Twitch streamer Alinity, who urged Elon Musk to buy Twitch next so that fans could finally find out why former Twitch megastar Dr DisRespect was permanently banned from the livestreaming platform.
Kripp had been conversing with his viewers about various topics while he played Hearthstone. One interesting topic that started to build up was Elon Musk buying out Twitter.
Kripparrian mentioned that he did not care about Elon Musk buying Twitter, but he did have some concerns. Speaking further about this, the Romanian-Canadian content creator said:
“It seems like he (Elon Musk) was kind of manipulating people through his tweets regarding his intentions of acquiring Twitter, and I think for a normal billionaire, that wouldn’t really matter too much.”
“But he’s got this thing where he has done that a lot, and he has the SEC (U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission) like f***ing reviewing his tweets regularly. So, he is not a regular billionaire in that regard, right? So, he might have some issues with that.”
He finished talking about this subject by saying:
“I think that is a pretty real concern for him anyway.”
Kripparrian continued to stream for a couple of hours more.
