15.0.0.0 is not /7-aligned. 14.0.0.0/7 and 16.0.0.0/7 are valid, but 15.0.0.0/7 is not.

Even if 15.0.0.0/7 were valid CIDR notation, it would include 14.0.0.0 - 15.255.255.255, not 15.0.0.0 - 16.255.255.255 as was intended.

IANA and the RIRs have long-standing policies concerning IPv4 allocation, that they've been enforcing more and more strictly as IPv4 space nears total exhaustion. Addresses are allocated and assigned with the understanding and agreement that they will be used efficiently. Entities that fail to make efficient use of their allocations will not receive new allocations, and may even have their current ones revoked.

Intentional, persistent, complete blackouts are very inefficient use of precious IPv4 space , so whoever does that gets no new allocations.

How much are we talking about here? One million dollars? A billion? 10 billion?

He currently owns about 45 million shares. 30% of that is about 14 million. At about $14/share, that's roughly $200 million.

His 45 million shares amount to 7% of Twitter, so we're talking about 2% of the company changing hands.
