“If we don’t get an answer, cancel the contract”, Musk threatened on Twitter
According to the DW report, Elon Musk says that he has repeatedly asked Twitter management for details on the number of fake and autoresponder accounts on his platform, but has yet to receive a satisfactory response.
American billionaire businessman Elon Musk has threatened to back out of his multibillion-dollar bid to buy Twitter. He has given this threat in a letter sent by his lawyers. Since Elon Musk announced his intention to buy Twitter in April, he and Twitter management have been at loggerheads over the past few weeks.
Text of the letter
In a letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission, Elon Musk said that he has repeatedly asked Twitter management for details on the number of fake accounts and automated answering machines on its platform. So far no satisfactory answer has been given to them. According to Elon Musk’s legal team, Twitter has offered to provide details on how the company estimates the number of fake accounts. According to Musk’s lawyers, “Twitter’s offer amounts to a denial of Elon Musk’s request to provide data.” Violation’ has been declared. Elon Musk’s legal team added that their clients “reserve the right to not pay the agreed amount and to cancel the contract”.

However, Twitter said in an earlier statement that Elon Musk had not shown interest in the issue of fake accounts when he expressed his intention to acquire ownership of Twitter. “Musk did not request any confidential information from Twitter,” according to a statement released by a Twitter sub-account related to investors.
This is the first time Elon Musk has publicly threatened to back out of his decision to buy Twitter.
Why does Elon Musk need data?
This American billionaire says he wants to make his own estimate of the number of fake Twitter accounts. Twitter management, on the other hand, has consistently maintained that less than five percent of its 229 million users are fake or autoresponder accounts. Elon Musk has questioned the accuracy of these figures, claiming that the number of fake accounts on Twitter could be as high as 20 percent. The issue of fake accounts on Twitter has long been a topic of interest for Elon Musk.

Musk’s threat to quit Twitter comes shortly after he said he plans to cut 10 percent of his salaried workforce at Tesla, the maker of electric cars. The price of Tesla’s shares rose from $100 to $1000 during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the massive increase made Elon Musk the richest man in the world.
Self-proclaimed “free speech advocates” on Twitter are known for blocking and disparaging Musk’s critics. He is also against Twitter’s ban on former US President Donald Trump. Twitter permanently banned Trump from using the social media platform in January 2021 for allegedly posting inflammatory tweets following the attack on the US House of Representatives.
