Elon Musk says Twitter Inc is "trending to breakeven” after he had to save it from "bankruptcy.”

The billionaire said in a tweet Sunday that the last three months were "extremely tough.” He had to juggle the rescue of the social-media platform with responsibilities at two other companies he oversees - Tesla Inc and Space Exploration Technologies Corp, or SpaceX.

"Wouldn’t wish that pain on anyone,” Musk said.

Daily user count and user minutes are "still strong,” Musk said in a follow-up tweet.

Musk last year completed a US$44bil (RM187.35bil) deal for Twitter that gave him control of the company for US$54.20 (RM230.78) a share. Also last year, he became the the first person in history to have US$200bil (RM851.60bil) erased from his fortune, according to the Bloomberg Billionaire’s Index.

Since the takeover, Musk has openly and frequently talked about the possibility of bankruptcy for Twitter. Still, the platform made its first interest payment on the US$12.5bil (RM53.22bil) in debt that the new owner used to take it private last year, bolstering confidence in his ability to avert bankruptcy in the near term. – Bloomberg
