MUSKS SUGGESTS TWITTER DEAL COULD STILL HAPPEN
Tesla CEO Elon Musk suggested early Saturday that his acquisition deal with Twitter could still go through if the social media platform provided information about how it confirms that sampled accounts are real.
“If Twitter simply provides their method of sampling 100 accounts and how they’re confirmed to be real, the deal should proceed on original terms,” Musk tweeted.
“However, if it turns out that their SEC filings are materially false, then it should not.”
Later he tweeted he was challenging the CEO of Twitter to a debate.
“I hereby challenge @paraga to a public debate about the Twitter bot percentage. Let him prove to the public that Twitter has <5% fake or spam daily users!” Musk tweeted.
Musk also tweeted out a poll asking if less than 5 percent of daily users on Twitter were spam or fake.
The tweets from Musk are the latest in the drama between the SpaceX CEO and the social media platform following legal action over his bid to buy Twitter.
