Elon Musk may be out, but Snoop Dogg is in.

The hip-hop legend has revealed that he wants to buy Twitter after the billionaire announced that he is putting his bid to acquire the social media platform on hold, just weeks after he agreed to take the company private in a $44 billion deal.

“May have 2 buy Twitter now,” Snoop tweeted.

Using the hashtag #WhenSnoopBuysTwitter, he shared what he would do as the new owner of Twitter, including giving everyone a blue verified checkmark.

“Everyone gets a blue checkmark. Even tha bots with 10 letters in their name that hit you in DMs n just say ‘Hello,’” he said before reconsidering. “Nah f**k those bots.”

Snoop’s “first line of business” would be to put free internet on airplanes. “29 dollars for 1 hour is bullshit,” he quipped.

The 50-year-old rapper, who recently acquired Death Row Records, also plans to appoint his own board of directors including Jimmy from my corner Fish Fry, Tommy Chung, and Pete Najarian, who he called “tha guy with the ponytail on CNBC.”

Musk said that the Twitter deal was “temporarily on hold” as he reviewed the amount of fake or spam accounts, which Twitter says represents less than 5% of users. After Musk’s tweet, Twitter shares fell as much as 26% in premarket trading before the stock rebounded.

Two hours after his first tweet, Musk said he is “still committed” to completing the acquisition.
