Apparently not for Elon Musk, who made a sensation recently when it seemed he was in serious negotiations to purchase Twitter. Now, he’s making headlines once again with a rumor that he’s purchasing the popular game platform Roblox. We investigate this to see if there is any truth to the matter. Is Elon Musk buying Roblox?
How The Rumor Was Born

Let the rest of us, you’re likely wondering just how this information was started, or better yet, why in the world a wealthy businessman would want to acquire an online game. To no surprise, it’s all thanks to Twitter. Over the past few days, multiple people have been making mysterious tweets either begging not to let Elon Musk buy Twitter or in some cases, asking him to in order to improve the platform.
In fact, if you go to Twitter right now and type Elon Musk Roblox into search, you’ll see lots of Tweets requesting one or the other. While we couldn’t trace the exact origin of the rumor, it can be deduced that it likely started back when he made a bid to purchase Twitter for 44 billion dollars. This deal never seemed to go through, though it seemed to be seriously in the works for a while, with Twitter’s shareholders having recently approved the offer. While that is still unconfirmed, the rumor of him buying Roblox comes with a more straightforward answer.
The Truth Of The Matter
Ultimately, there is no concrete evidence that the billionaire is buying Roblox, showing that the rumor is merely a case of people having fun on the internet. The man himself has not made any tweets hinting at it or any offers to buy it. Realistically, a gaming platform like Roblox does not have the same value to a businessman as something universal like Twitter, which is why it will likely stay a rumor.
Hopefully, this puts any fears you had about Elon Musk buying Roblox to rest. As for his Twitter buying crusade, we can’t say the same!
