Elon Musk is reportedly set to launch a new proposal to finally make Twitter his own after a previous deal collapsed.

The world's richest man landed himself in hot water with Ukraine after receiving praise from Russia President Vladimir Putin for his social media polls on how to resolve the ongoing war.

The billionaire intruded in the conflict by taking to Twitter on Monday to list out a series of actions he believes must occur for peace to be achieved, warning it could end in nuclear warfare.

Bloomberg's Ed Hammond has now reported that far from settling on using Twitter to vent his ideas – no matter how insensitive – Musk is back in the market to snap it up.

"Scoop – N*MUSK SAID TO PROPOSE TO TWITTER TO PROCEED W/ DEAL AT $54.20," Mr Hammond tweeted soon after 5pm on Tuesday.

In early July, the billionaire terminated his $44 billion (£38.bn) deal for Twitter because the platform shed light on the amount of fake accounts on the platform.

The Tesla CEO is back in talks to acquire the social network for $54.20 (£47.19) per share which is the exact same price as previously agreed.

Bloomberg's report earlier today saw shares for Twitter immediately shoot up by 13% and were halted until further news developed.

Twitter sued Musk in a trial that was set to open on October 17 but this new deal is likely to change that.

Musk's 'peace-making' ramblings on Monday prompted the virtual intervention of Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky who put out his own tweet asking his followers “Which @elonmusk do you like more?”, one who supports Russia, or one that supports Ukraine.

Obviously, the Musk that supports Ukraine was the overwhelming winner in the poll.
