In the new tweet Laid off on Twitter before the market opened, Elon Musk reiterated that his $ 44 billion deal to buy a social networking platform was suspended due to a spam bot problem.
But now he tacitly accuses the company of lying about the share of fake / spam accounts on the platform, claiming that its CEO “publicly refused to show evidence <5%."
Musk also delivered what sounds like a direct ultimatum, writing: “This deal can’t move forward until it does.”
He also estimates that there may be more than 20% fake / spam accounts on the platform, citing a report on comments he made in Miami on Monday, which said he thought a fifth of Twitter accounts – these are fake / spam bots.
The tweet appears to have been designed to put even more pressure on the Twitter leadership, which has already suffered humiliation from the fact that Musk tweeted emoticons into the tweets of CEO Parag Agraval (see previous report) in a very public discussion of the problem of spam bots, among others, generated by Mask ‘noise’.
With this latest tweet aimed at the CEO of Twitter, a billionaire who publishes shit can use the tactics of a hooligan with a troll – in an attempt to attract more negative advertising (on Twitter) aimed at undercutting Twitter shares – in an attempt to get the company to agree lower a suggestion to just make him shut up.
Or, well, he’s looking for a way to get out of the deal completely.
At the time of writing, the stock price of Twitter fell another 2.75% before the market. In recent weeks, actions on Twitter have faced muscular inequalities on the road with a maximum of about $ 50 at the time his proposal was accepted to a minimum of about $ 37.
Let’s hope that the mafia does not take notes from the textbook Mask about the “power of the megaphone platform of social networks.”
Notably, Tesla’s CEO waived his right to due diligence when he agreed to buy Twitter last month – presumably to encourage Twitter to accept what he expressed as his “best and last offer” after her board initially tried to evade absorption. So whining about the percentage of boots he buys now is either nonsense or calculated nonsense.
While his call for Twitter to open up to “external scrutiny” on bot detection may at least encourage his independent research community.
Musk also agreed with the non-humiliation clause in the Twitter purchase deal. But apparently he doesn’t understand what that word means. Or, in other words, it continues to act as if it is simply not subject to binding legal agreements.
Contacted Twitter to comment on Mask’s latest allegations. At the time of writing, he has not responded, however Bloomberg just tweeted that the company said it was still “committed to completing the deal at an agreed price and terms as soon as possible.”
