Elon Musk had contractually committed at the end of April to acquire Twitter. But last week, he unilaterally announced that he was terminating the agreement, justifying his decision by the fact that the CA would not have provided reliable information on the number of fake accounts active on the network.
The Tesla boss’s lawyers therefore assure that the trial will require analyzing “mountains of data” to prove, as Elon Musk claims, that the platform is riddled with inauthentic accounts, rogue accounts, and spam, well beyond the 5% proportion indicated by the company.
