The social media company had initially denied the deal and had moved to prevent the takeover. However, Twitter became more receptive to an offer after Musk revealed that he had secured $ 46.5 billion in funding. The company's board met on Sunday to discuss Elon Musk's plan and offer, a source familiar with the situation told CNBC.
