Elon Musk said he agreed to buy Twitter if the social network provides evidence of the authenticity of the accounts it verified. In July, he announced that he was pulling out of the deal because Twitter didn’t want to reveal the number of bots.
“If Twitter discloses its method of sampling 100 accounts and how they are authenticated, the deal will be closed on the original terms. However, if it turns out that they lied, there should be no deal, ”Mr. Musk wrote on Twitter.
In mid-July, Twitter filed a lawsuit to force the businessman to complete the purchase of the company. A court hearing is scheduled for October. Twitter calls the billionaire’s pretexts to withdraw from the agreement “a fictional story for the trial that contradicts evidence and common sense.”
