But its aftermath could linger if the mercurial billionaire who now holds a roughly 9% stake in Twitter continues to push forward his ideas for reshaping the business of social media. Although it’s not clear what he wants, Musk is now free to keep building his ownership stake, push for a management change or even try to convert Twitter to a subscription-only service.
