Despite his title, stemming from a net worth of $245 billion, most of his money is in the form of Tesla shares. Musk recently liquidated $8.5 billion worth of Tesla shares last week, in order to go ahead with the Twitter deal. There was immediate impact of the share value of the EV maker.

The billionaire was earlier expected to put in $21 billion in cash for the Twitter deal as well as take a loan against his Tesla shares. The Reuters report also named some of the potential investors in the Twitter deal. It includes Apollo Global Management Inc (APO.N) and Ares Management Corp (ARES.N) are among the few private equity firms that may provide Musk with more financing for the deal.

Elon Musk also aired a new idea for monetizing Twitter further. He recently revealed his plans to charge businesses and governments for using the platform. On the other hand, he ensured that the “casual user” will continue to use Twitter for free. The idea of better monetization of the platform could also attract a few of Musk’s potential investors to partake in the mega acquisition.
