Elon Musk was warned not to buy Twitter after a ‘huge problem’ was identified, says longtime friend

ELON Musk’s longtime friend has claimed he doesn’t want to see his former business partner attack Twitter.

LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman immediately messaged Musk after learning of the attempted acquisition.


“I read the tweet and I think I got most people’s reaction, it was like, ‘Oh my God, another huge deal. He’s already dealing with a lot,’” Hoffman told Axios in a podcast interview.

He reached out to Musk and said, “Okay, that’s a big deal. »

After the dust settled, Hoffman realized he had seen a situation like this play out before.

“After that, I thought, ‘I was one of those who thought he couldn’t do both Tesla and SpaceX and he was clearly wrong,'” Hoffman continued.

Hoffman is a member of the PayPal Mafia – a network of PayPal executives and engineers who went on to found some of the biggest tech companies out there.

Hoffman brokered the sale of PayPal to eBay, which made Musk and several of his cronies immensely wealthy.

The engineers and executives who ran PayPal are said to have illustrious careers as entrepreneurs, and several former PayPal mobsters are billionaires — all are, at least, multi-millionaires.

Some of those former PayPal employees have been dragged into Musk’s upcoming lawsuit with Twitter.

David O. Sacks, PayPal’s chief operating officer and chief product officer during the company’s Hay Day, had his text messages subpoenaed by Twitter lawyers.
