Twitter Investigates What Tweet Ruined Disney Buying Twitter
Disney CEO Bob Iger has been on a weird press run for seemingly no reason at all this week, and throughout that journey, he’s revealed a lot of random information. Perhaps the most hilarious bit of intel he let go was the fact that Disney planned on buying social media platform Twitter, but had to pull the plug before the deal actually went through.
What could happen to make a huge conglomerate like Disney stop from buying a huge entity like Twitter? Apparently, the “rudeness, nastiness, and filth.”
While sitting down with Jim Cramer, Iger explained that after exploring the platform, “It doesn’t feel very Disney to me.”
Of course, Twitter quickly got ahold of this info and the question arose: what tweet could it have been to make a billion-dollar machine say, “Nope, we aren’t touching this.” That’s when all hell broke loose and the most outrageous tweets to ever be tweeted resurfaced.
After only a few tweets, we ALL understood why the Disney CEO backed out of purchasing Twitter.

About the Film
The years have been kind to Maleficent and Aurora. Their relationship, born of heartbreak, revenge and ultimately love, has flourished. Yet the hatred between man and the fairies still exists. Aurora’s impending marriage to Prince Phillip is cause for celebration in the kingdom of Ulstead and the neighboring Moors, as the wedding serves to unite the two worlds. When an unexpected encounter introduces a powerful new alliance, Maleficent and Aurora are pulled apart to opposing sides in a Great War, testing their loyalties and causing them to question whether they can truly be family. “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” is directed by Joachim Rønning from a story by Linda Woolverton and a screenplay by Linda Woolverton and Noah Harpster & Micah Fitzerman-Blue. The film is produced by Joe Roth, Angelina Jolie and Duncan Henderson with Matt Smith, Jeff Kirschenbaum, Michael Vieira and Linda Woolverton serving as executive producers.
