This is the moment when no one was sure it would ever happen: after months of drama, Elon Musk announces that his $44 billion (28 trillion 964 billion 128 million FCFA) deal to take over Twitter is concluded.

He announces the big news on Twitter himself, of course changing his bio to read “Chief Twit” and saying “the bird is free”. Job done, as far as he is concerned.

There’s been no official confirmation yet, and the silence from Twitter HQ so far has been rather deafening.
