Summary : Diddy Helped Elon Musk Buy Twitter with $10 Million, Media Mogul ‘Wanted a Seat at the Table’.

Grammy-winning, tequila and Media mogul Diddy helped Elon Musk buy Twitter by allocating $10 million toward the Tesla CEO’s $44 billion bid to take over the social media company, as the rapper reportedly wanted “a seat at the table.”

Musk was able to complete his purchase of Twitter with the help of loans from Wall Street banks and investors, one of whom was Diddy — whose real name is Sean John Combs — according to sources close to the rapper who spoke to TMZ.

After officially taking over Twitter last week, Musk immediately fired the company’s top executives, and has reportedly ordered massive job cuts across the social media platform.

Among those executives included Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal and the company’s head of “trust and safety” Vijaya Gadde, who was notorious for her fanatical left-wing censorship campaign, which included suspending former President Donald Trump’s account.

On Thursday, Musk’s Twitter notified workers that mass layoffs would be announced, and that employees being let go by the social media company will receive an email on their personal account, while workers that keep their jobs will receive an email on their work email.
