Elon Musk Twitter takeover deal is in ‘serious jeopardy’

Twitter says spam bots are a small part of the company’s total user base – less than 5%

– but Musk believes the number is much higher.

An issue that has become a significant factor in Musk’s planned $44 billion Twitter acquisition

The report said Musk had concluded that Twitter’s figures on spam accounts – a bone of contention in the deal – were not verifiable.

“Eventually, the Twitter board will tire of the shenanigans and will file a suit for specific performance in Delaware,” said Brian Quinn

Twitter can also demand a $1bn break fee from Musk if he attempts to renege on the agreement.
