“I’m excited to share that we’re appointing @elonmusk to our board! Through conversations with Elon in recent weeks, it became clear to us that he would bring great value to our Board,” Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal said in a tweet.

According to a document filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, Musk acquired nearly 73.5 million Twitter shares — a 9.2 percent stake in the company.

Based on Friday’s closing price of the company’s stock, the South African-born billionaire’s investment amounts to nearly $2.9 billion.

Based on the investment, Twitter’s stock soared by more than 25 percent in pre-market trade on Wall Street last Monday, after Tesla boss Elon Musk took a major stake in the social media company.
