Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, announced on Twitter that he had met Pope Francis.
(AP) ROME — Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, used Twitter to advertise his meeting with Pope Francis while his $44 billion acquisition bid for the social media site is still pending.
Regarding the Friday afternoon audience, Musk tweeted, “Honored to meet @Pontifex yesterday,” along with a picture of him, Francis, and four of his teenage children.
The audience wasn’t announced, and the Vatican didn’t say what was discussed. The tweet that came after one of a Venice street scene suggested that Musk might have made other stops during his journey.
Francis frequently hosts absolutely private encounters in the reception area of the Vatican guesthouse where he stays with prominent individuals. He frequently appeals to corporate CEOs to use riches and technology to help the most vulnerable while taking care of God’s creation as a talking point when he meets with them.
Twitter’s board of directors recommended that shareholders approve Musk’s proposed acquisition on June 21, but the stock price of Twitter is still much below Musk’s asking price, raising serious doubts about whether the sale will go through.
