Snoop Dogg knows how to run a business given the several projects he’s a part of, and it looks like he wants to have his hands in another lucrative pot. On Friday (May 13), the Doggfather took to his Twitter to announce he has a plan to possibly purchase the app.
According to Snoop, his plan is to replace the board of directors with a bunch of characters that probably have no business running the show over at Twitter. The West Coast legend also wants to get free WiFi on planes so people can tweet as much as they want in the air.
“May have 2 buy Twitter now,” Snoop said. “Gonna replace the board of directors with Jimmy from my corner Fish Fry, Tommy Chung and tha guy with the ponytail on CNBC. First line of business. Free internet on airplanes!!! 29 dollars for 1 hour is bullshit.”
He added, “Everyone gets a blue checkmark. Even tha bots with 10 letters in their name that hit you in DMs n just say ‘Hello’. Nah fuck those bots. #WhenSnoopBuysTwitter …”
Snoop isn’t the only rapper to have his eyes on Twitter. After business magnate Elon Musk purchased the popular app in a massive $44 billion acquisition, Meek Mill hopped on the app to ask if he and others could invest with the company.
“Elon musk let us invest in Twitter with you’ big homie,’” Meek tweeted last week.
According to Rolling Stone, Elon Musk had to call on some investor friends to make the purchase happen, including from some unlikely sources. New SEC filings reveal the Saudi royal family, a Qatar-based group and a string of wealthy Trump supporters are among his $7 billion backers. But Musk announced that the deal was “on hold” pending confirmation that spam and fake accounts make up less than 5 percent of Twitter’s users.
