Twitter, which is attempting to force Elon Musk to consummate his buyout deal, reportedly cited a tweet by Musk in which he posted a poop emoji to claim he publicly disparaged them.
The legal complaint from Twitter alleges that Musk violated his $44 billion takeover agreement by disparaging the company; Musk has threatened to quit the deal over concerns about bots and fake accounts.
Musk’s questions regarding the way Twitter handled spam and fake accounts prompted Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal’s protestations claiming it was not possible for Twitter to determine which accounts are fake “on any given day.”
Musk had tweeted that he would prioritize removing “spam bots” from Twitter in April; in early May, Twitter declared in a filing that false or spam accounts represented less than 5% of its monetizable daily active users between January and March. during the first quarter.
