Who's funding Elon Musk's Twitter and what do they get in return?
According to The Washington Post, these are the people who have invested enough cash in #ElonMusk's money-losing #Twitter business to earn themselves some significant non-financial benefits, even if the company never makes a profit:
#SaudiArabia, #Qatar & #Binance (which was founded in China) get: "Access to confidential company information... (which could include) personal data about Twitter’s users... (that would be served up to) governments that have a history of cracking down on dissidents on Twitter and other online platforms."

Elon's buddies #LarryEllison and #JackDorsey get: Who knows? "From political persuasion to regained glory, the wealthy elite in Silicon Valley have myriad reasons to ally themselves with Musk — and may have some asks of him too." Like naming the next CEO.
#MorganStanley, #BankofAmerica, and #Barclays get: Interests payments of $1 billion each year. Plus: "A huge role if the company goes under."
