The controversy surrounding the efforts of the richest man in the world to acquire the microblogging service Twitter (TWTR) has recently been making news in financial media outlets all over the world. Some may be asking if Elon Musk is finally on track to take Twitter private now that he appears ready to go back to the original terms spelled forth in writing months ago.

Documents made available to the public on October 4th suggested that Elon Musk might be ready to proceed after making apparent attempts for months to back out of the takeover transaction. Monday just gone, the Tesla (TSLA) CEO wrote to Twitter to announce his decision to buy the social media site for the initial share price of $54.20 set forth in April.
