In a filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission detailing on Tuesday detailing a litter to investors, Twitter’s board of directors said that it “unanimously recommends that you vote (for) the adoption of the merger agreement.” If the deal were to close now , investors in the company would pocket a profit of $15.22 for each share they own.
