Agreement between Twitter and Elon Musk

In an agreement worth about $44 billion. Elon Musk and Twitter agreed to be acquired in April for USD 54.20 per share. To assess the accuracy of Twitter’s claim that fewer than 5% of accounts on the platform are bots or spam, Musk, according to a report by ANI, placed the agreement on hold in May. Back in June, Musk publicly charged the microblogging platform with violating the terms of the merger agreement. Also, he threatened to walk away and cancel the purchase of the social media firm. If it did not give him the information he had asked for regarding spam and accounts.

In a letter to Twitter’s head of legal, policy, and trust, Vijaya Gadde, Musk claimed that Twitter is “actively rejecting and undermining his information rights” as stated in the agreement, CNN said.

According to Musk, there may be up to 90% more spam accounts than are registered. The acquisition “cannot proceed forward” until the business presents “evidence” of its spam metric, according to earlier statements made by Musk. Previously, Musk had made the platform’s spam bots a major problem. Despite saying that Twitter is essential to “the survival of civilization,” he has promised to beat them or “die trying.” ANI said.
