Twitter isn't worth a million dollars. I have a bridge you might be interested in.

Ok, lets assume this is actually a legit plan where they can raise the money and will follow through with this strategy, and is not just a scam & publicity stunt. What are the chances this could actually work?

Twitter has a market cap of $12 billion and average trading volume is 16.55 million with current stock price of 16.75/share. This means withkut someone trying to build up a $1 billion position it is trading about a quarter billion worth of stocks per day. If someone wants to buy up that much of the company it will have to slowly build the position overto.time to minimize how much their activity will drive the price up, but best case scenario $1 billion might buy 5% of the company. Meanwhile financial institutions would own maybe 35-40% of the company (currently own 46%). Are all these super rich hedge fund managers and mutual fund managers going to give up control of the board to an sjw who wants to burn th company to the ground for the purpose of political activism? Banning the president would be a delaration of war, and the board answers to Wall Street. Twitter still does not turn a profit, how would wall street think this is a good business strategy? Insiders currently own 21% of the stock, but twitter is notoriously run by lazy leftist hippies, the founder and current CEO was fired by the board a few years back because he didnt give a shit about the comapny and spent his days taking appa4ell design classes and making indigenous-styled hippie dresses. Those hippies may support the "ban trump" strategy at first, but leftists are fickle and greedy and are likely to change their tune pretty quickly once they see their money drying up.

So even if they did manage to raise the money they would basically have no chance of 8mplementing their strategy because twitter is way too big.

1 Billion dollars is more than enough for a leveraged buyout (AKA Hostile Takeover).

Leveraged buyouts use corporate debt to pay for the portion of the company that they can not buy with cash. That is only an option when the buyers of corporate debt feel like it's a safe investment. The people taking over the company have to show that the company has the income to service the new debt, and the people buying the company have a good plan for increasing the value of the company and increasing its earnings.

What's the credit worthiness of a takeover group that plans to turn twitter into a political weapon to attack and alienate the customers who have different political opinions? That's like a bank agreeing to give a mortgage loan to someone who has declared that they're going to build capfire style barbuque pit in the living room.

Wilson's ambitious campaign hasn't met with much success, having raised just over 3,000 dollars in six days. GoFundMes stay up for as long as the poster wishes, so if the campaign's rate of fundraising remains constant, Wilson's billion should come together around the year 7496.
