Elon Musk, Move Twitter to Schwertner, TX. 38 Miles North of Austin in Williamson County, and we will give you 100 Acres for FREE

Schwertner told KXAN that he wants the property to host the new headquarters of Twitter, which is currently based in San Francisco.
According to the station, Schwertner owns more than 20,000 acres of land that spans Bell and Williamson counties.
“We think this is a place to have new technology,” he said, per KXAN. “This has always been a rural area for agriculture, but it’s changing fast. And so we thought, why not let Elon Musk be the catalyst to make it happen?”
Schwertner, who admits to being a big fan of the South Africa-born Musk, believes Twitter setting up shop deep in the heart of Texas would be a win-win situation.
“We have a lot of land, this area is really growing, we have affordable housing, and I thought it’d be an excellent opportunity for him and for us,” the rancher told KXAN. (Austin Journal)
