Elon Musk said on Saturday, August 6, that if Twitter can find a way to determine if the accounts are real or not, the $44 billion acquisition would go through.
Musk’s legal team says that the main reason he stopped buying Twitter was because the social media site did not give him enough information about spam and fake accounts.
Last week, Twitter rejected Musk’s claims that he was hoodwinked into signing a deal, stating that it was “implausible and contrary to the facts.”
Twitter on Thursday said that:
“According to Musk, he — the billionaire founder of multiple companies, advised by Wall Street bankers and lawyers — was hoodwinked by Twitter into signing a $44 billion merger agreement. That story is as implausible and contrary to fact as it sounds,”
On July 29, Musk filed a countersuit against Twitter after it filed a lawsuit against him for attempting to walk away from the contract.
