The Texas man is president and CEO of Schwertner Farms Inc. which has more than 20,000 acres in Williamson and Bell Counties. He made his offer to Musk on Twitter on Tuesday.

Schwertner wrote: "Elon Musk, Move Twitter to Schwertner, TX. 38 Miles North of Austin in Williamson County, and we will give you 100 Acres for FREE."
As per The Epoch Times, Schwertner oversees farming and ranching on 20,000 acres of land just north of Georgetown. He said that the move would be a "win-win for everybody" and would boost the economy by bringing in jobs.

After gaining interactions from users online and local outlets, Schwertner spoke to Fox Business about the seriousness of his prospect. "I am very serious about the offer," Schwertner said, reporting that the land he is offering to Musk is worth millions of dollars.

Schwertner continued: "We think it’s a good idea, especially when you’ve got Samsung coming to Taylor," noting that the area of land is "exploding" and that Austin citizens also want to be part of "this explosive growth."

The Texas man added that the area is a "perfect location" for the billionaire because he already has three companies - Tesla, SpaceX, and the Boring company - all operating in Texas. Therefore, in comparison to Twitter's current headquarters in California, Texas is "growing fast" and the location offers "affordable housing and places to live".

Musk reached an agreement to buy Twitter on Monday for roughly $44 billion. In a tweet, he shared his plans for the platform now that he is taking the reins. He vowed that now that it is privately owned, he will be able to introduce new features and permit free speech.
The 50-year-old tweeted: "Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated". He also added that he wants to get rid of "automated spam accounts" and restructure the algorithm so it is open to the public's trust.
