Valerie Plame Wilson, a former undercover CIA agent, has expressed optimism that she will succeed at denying Donald Trump Access to twitter. That will be possible if she will succeed at crowd-funding enough money to purchase the company.
In the previous week, Wilson through a tweet asserted that she was going to do everything within her means to ban Trump from Twitter. That would be in case the top executives working with the provider jilted from doing it themselves. The GoFundMe page for the fundraiser showcased that the various tweets by the American leader damaged the country and also exposed citizens to harm.
She has been targeting hitting the $1 billion mark. By Wednesday morning, she had accumulated about $6,000 which is still way below the targeted mark. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary in an email statement outlined a large number of Americans liked Trump’s use of twitter. According Sander’s, Wilson’s demands were unreasonable and totally ridiculous and revealed much about her intolerance and hate.
Wilson has her eyes set on buying a controlling interest of Twitter’s stock and that was clear from what she wrote on the fundraiser’s GoFundMe page. That will only happen if she succeeds at raising the total amount in good time.
However, she doesn’t seem to be running out of options. She said that in case she fails to purchase a majority of shares, she will resort to exploring options to purchase a large chunk of the stake and then proceed to championing the proposal at Twitter’s annual shareholder meeting.
It is a long-shot for Plame considering that even the $1 billion goal won’t be enough to give her a controlling interest in the company. An analyst opined, “As of Wednesday, a majority stake would cost roughly $6 billion. But a $1 billion stake would make her Twitter’s largest shareholder and give her a very strong position to exert influence on the company.”
Efforts to get twitter to comment in relation to Wilson’s plan were unsuccessful after the provider declined to make any comments.
