Can Elon Musk be stopped from taking over Twitter?

New York (CNN Business)Ten days after Elon Musk disclosed he'd become Twitter's largest shareholder, the world's richest man has made an offer to buy the company outright. Musk on Thursday offered to acquire all the shares in Twitter (TWTR) he does not own at a valuation of $41.4 billion, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

How would Musk finance the deal?

The first question is whether Musk is able to follow through with the deal at all. Right now, according to Bloomberg, Musk has about $3 billion in readily accessible cash. So he would have to finance the rest of the deal some other way, whether that is selling shares of Tesla or borrowing money.
