Twitter owner buys Lasky platform
According to a reliable source, the American billionaire Elon Musk's company, X Corp, which also owns the social networking platform company Twitter, has purchased the employment platform Lasky, which specialises in the technology sector. This marks Musk's first acquisition in the field of technology since he purchased Twitter in October for more than $ 44 billion.
The purchase worth was reportedly paid for in both cash and shares, according to a source that Bloomberg News cited as providing this information. On its website, Lasky claims that their tool can validate mutual interest, create clear expectations, and demonstrate the feasibility of the recruiting process. Lasky is a company that connects people with IT-related work experience with potential employers.
Bloomberg reported that this deal represents the first substantial initiative on the part of Musk since he bought Twitter. Since that time, he has tended to reduce the service, beginning with laying off a huge number of Twitter employees and even reducing the size of the servers that it supplies. This deal represents the first major initiative that Musk has undertaken since he bought Twitter.
Elon Musk announces the addition of more features and services to Twitter
Musk recently stated, after choosing a new CEO for Twitter in an effort to improve its reputation among investors, that he would turn the Twitter platform into a "app for everything" by adding more features and services to it, including financial services, in order to attract new users. This statement was made shortly after Musk appointed the new CEO for Twitter.
It is currently unclear how Musk intends to incorporate Lasky into his holding company or what his plans are for doing so. Yesterday, a statement was posted on the Lasky website that read, "The Lasky platform is no longer available."
