Fidelity: Elon Musk’s X/Twitter Lost 71.5% of $44 Billion Value Since Acquisition


Elon Musk’s X, formerly known as Twitter, is now valued at only $12.54 billion just 14 months after the Tesla tycoon acquired the social media platform for $44 billion, according to numbers released by Fidelity Investments.

The financial investment corporation has again reported a mark-down in the value of its shares in X, which they originally purchased for $300 million to help Musk fund the purchase of Twitter in 2022. 

Fidelity believes that X is worth 71.5 percent less than it did when Musk acquired it in October 2022, a disclosure obtained by Axios on Sunday said.

This means that Fidelity’s portion of the tech billionaire’s company is now worth just $85.5 million, a fraction of what they invested.

The report, which used numbers from the end of November, shows that X’s value has dropped by $31.46 billion since Musk bought it, setting its total worth at $12.54 billion.

This includes a whopping 10.7 percent drop in November alone, during which time Musk told boycotting advertisers to “go fuck yourself.”
