Elon Musk, who loves to tweet about anything and everything, remained silent on Twitter about the cancellation of the $ 44 billion acquisition deal. There hasn’t been a single post on his 100 million followers’ feed since Friday when he announced his withdrawal from the most closely watched buyout proposal in the world of technology this year.
On Monday, however, he shared a meme mocking the legal threat to sue the world’s richest person. Elon Musk shared ‘his reactions’ to the twists and turns in the Twitter takeover saga in the post. “They said I could not buy Twitter. Then they wouldn’t bot info. Now they want to force me to buy Twitter in court. Now they have to disclose bot info in court,” the post read, along with Musk’s goofy pictures.
Musk, 51, is referring to the time in April when the microblogging giant implemented a poison pill to prevent the takeover. Musk discusses his allegations that Twitter is riddled with bots (fake accounts) and that the company is doing the bare minimum to address this issue in the second image, which reads “then they wouldn’t disclose bot info.”
According to reports, Musk’s lawyers asked Twitter for more information on June 6, claiming that the company was “refusing Mr. Musk’s data requests” to reveal the number of fake accounts on its platform. When Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal explained how the company detects and combats spam bots in May, Musk responded with a poop emoji.
Musk also addressed the threat of legal action over his decision to cancel the deal. “They now want to force me to purchase Twitter in court.” They must now disclose bot information in court.”
According to The Hill, the microblogging site has hired the large New York-based law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz LLP in preparation for suing Musk. Next week, Twitter will file a lawsuit in Delaware. Meanwhile, Musk is represented by Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, a law firm.
