Texas landowner Jim Schwertner has offered up 100 acres of free land if Elon Musk opts to move Twitter's headquarters from San Francisco to Texas.

Other Musk-owned companies — including Tesla and the Boring Company — are already located in Texas.

Meta — formerly Facebook — and TikTok headquarters are also located in Central Texas.

What are the details?

Schwertner, president and CEO of Schwertner Farms, took to Twitter to lay out the terms of his generous offer.

He tweeted, "Elon, Move twitter to Schwertner, TX, 38 miles North of Austin and we will give you 100 Acres for FREE."

Scwhertner told Austonia that he believes the area is ripe for the picking and would be a "win-win" for everyone involved.

“We think it’s a good idea, especially when you’ve got Samsung coming to Taylor,” Schwertner said. “I mean, this area is exploding and we want to be part of this explosive growth.”

He added, “I just think with all the stuff he’s done, he evidently likes Texas, right, or he wouldn’t have moved from California. And I want to be part of his plan if he’ll come visit with us.”

Schwertner added that the move would also help area residents.

“We’ve always been entrepreneurs in our family and we’ve always tried to help the communities,” Schwertner insisted. “And I think my offer is a serious gesture to help the citizens around Williamson County.”

Musk has yet to publicly acknowledge Schwertner's offer.

What else is there to know about this?

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) chimed in and encouraged Musk to take Schwertner up on the offer.

He tweeted about Schwertner's offer on Wednesday, writing, "Texas man offers Elon Musk 100 acres of FREE land to move Twitter's headquarters. I will declare it a 'Free Speech Zone' Maybe we can rename it Twitter, Texas. Think about it."
