"We're excited to be able to help Elon realize a new vision for Twitter. We aim to play a role in bringing social media and web3 together in order to broaden the use and adoption of crypto and blockchain technology," Binance founder and CEO Changpeng Zhao said in the statement.

After the $44 billion deal closed yesterday, Musk reportedly fired Twitter's top executives, including CEO Parag Agarwal. Bloomberg reported today that Musk plans to assume the role of chief executive officer at Twitter and reverse lifetime account suspensions on the social media platform.

News of Binance's investment comes after a months-long on-again, off-again saga between Musk and Twitter. In May, Binance had committed $500 million to invest in Twitter alongside Musk's buyout of the social media service. "Our initial commitment remains the same and we look forward to exploring opportunities to grow the partnership in the future," said the Binance spokesperson.
