Elon Musk threatens to scrap Twitter deal cites ‘breach’ of agreement

Musk makes an official threat to back out of the Twitter acquisition

Elon Musk threatens to break-off Twitter deal as he alleges breach of contract with lack of data being provided. Elon Musk says the $44 billion agreement to buy Twitter Inc may not consumate as the social media platform is refusing to give him information about its spam bot accounts.

“Mr. Musk believes the company is actively resisting and thwarting his information rights (and the company’s corresponding obligations) under the merger agreement,” the lawyers write. The letter says Musk could choose “not to consummate the transaction” because of the alleged breach of contract.

Twitter Chief Executive Officer Parag Agrawal has said the number of fake accounts is less than 5% when measuring daily users -- a figure the company has previously cited in quarterly filings.

However the world's richest man is suspicious of this claim as his lawyers state"Musk believes Twitter is transparently refusing to comply with its obligations under the merger agreement, which is causing further suspicion that the company is withholding the requested data,"

Musk a self proclaimed champion of speech claims that spam/bot accounts form 20% of Twitter's users and wants to analyse the data himself as he "did not believe in the company's "lax testing methodologies."
