In November 2022, Andrew Gazdecki purchased Acquire.com for $240,000 and is now trying to buy the @acquire account from Musk, who is asking for $250,000. This dispute has sparked discussions among netizens.
Last October, Andrew Gazdecki, the CEO of MicroAcquire, announced the acquisition of the domain name Acquire.com. Initially, the purchase price was posted on Twitter as $2 million, but it was later corrected to $240,000. Gazdecki was pleased with the acquisition and subsequently applied for a matching trademark registration.
For the past year, Andrew Gazdecki had been politely requesting to obtain the dormant Twitter (X) username @acquire through multiple public statements and appeals to Elon Musk.
However, it recently came to light that Elon Musk's XTwiiter2.0 demanded $250,000 to release the @acquire account, exceeding the amount spent on acquiring the Acquire.com domain.
This incident has sparked various responses from netizens. Some are disappointed by Musk's high demand, believing he could profit from Twitter in a fairer and more ethical manner, and that it is unfair to companies like MicroAcquire and their clients and users.
On the other hand, some ridicule Musk's behavior and emphasize the risks and lack of control in buying social media accounts, advocating for website development and email acquisition instead.
The dispute over the Twitter username @acquire between Elon Musk and Andrew Gazdecki has prompted various opinions from netizens regarding business ethics and the uncertainties and potential risks involved in investing in social media handles.
Here are some comments from netizens:
Unfortunately, Elon Musk is asking for way too much money for the Twitter account. It's clear that MicroAcquired is the most deserving of owning this account name, and they've been trying to acquire it for over a year.
I know Musk is trying to monetize Twitter, but I think he could do it in a more fair and ethical way. For example, he could sell dormant handles to the companies that are most deserving at a discounted price. He could also provide other means for companies to obtain matching handles.
After spending $44 billion, Musk is going to have a field day on Twitter.
We all saw how he snatched the @X account without compensating the previous owner.
Moreover, only real idiots spend a dime to acquire social media accounts.
Firstly, they can be taken away without any impact or compensation. Secondly, your money is closely tied to the success of a third party. Imagine spending $250,000 just to bankrupt Twitter.
