Stuart Varney on Elon Musk’s large Twitter stake: I hope he shakes things up

FOX Business host Stuart Varney argues Tesla CEO Elon Musk has ‘worked wonders with technology.’

In his latest "My Take," "Varney & Co." host Stuart Varney urges Tesla CEO Elon Musk to "shake things up" after the tech pioneer purchased a 9.2 percent stake in Twitter following his criticism of the platform.

STUART VARNEY: Elon Musk loves making headlines: he likes being the center of attention. He made a big splash this morning, he's bought 73,486,938 shares of Twitter, 9.2% of the stock. What's he up to?

I hope he shakes things up.  Two weeks ago, Musk sharply criticized Twitter about free speech.

He tweeted this: ‘Given the fact that Twitter serves as the de facto public town square, failing to adhere to free speech principles fundamentally undermines democracy. What should be done?’
