Twitter's board has armed itself against a possible takeover - after the world's richest man said he wants to buy Twitter.
Billionaire Elon Musk has made an offer of $43bn.
He says the social media giant needs to be taken private to grow and become a platform for free speech.
But the Twitter board is fighting back.
It's adopted a so-called 'poison pill' plan that will prevent anyone from owning more than a 15 percent stake in the company.
What's driving Musk's quest to own Twitter?
And what would a possible takeover mean for this platform?
