Billionaire Elon Musk is back in the race to take over the social network Twitter.

“Buying Twitter is an accelerator to create X, the app for everything.” Billionaire Elon Musk wrote this sentence on Twitter after having apparently changed his mind, once again, on the acquisition of the platform.

In a letter sent to the company, Mr. Musk agreed to pay the price he had offered several months ago before backing out of the haggling.

But with this message on the social network, the owner of Tesla and SpaceX has shown his intention to take a new step on Twitter.

According to Zoe Kleinman, the BBC’s technology editor, Mr Musk may well be thinking of something similar to the hit Chinese app WeChat.
