The American billionaire provided that an agreement could be reached if Twitter confirmed that 100 social network accounts are “very real”.

In early July, Elon Musk turned the page on his plan to buy Twitter. The President of Tesla and Space X just restarted this project. To a user who assessed the situation, Elon Musk replied that “If Twitter just provides its method of sampling 100 accounts and confirms that they are real, an agreement (to take over Twitter) should be made. Again, on the original terms. ($44 billion. However, if it turns out that their statements to the SEC (the American financial market police) are false in essence, this is not the case. ”

In response to another netizen wondering if the SEC is investigating these “dubious allegations,” Elon Musk responded, “Good question. Why not? “.

These social media claims come two days after Elon Musk accused Twitter of “scamming” the number of monetized social media accounts. The Tesla and SpaceX boss’s claims are “factually inaccurate, legally insufficient, and commercially irrelevant.” We can’t wait for the trial,” Bret Taylor, chairman of the board of directors of the social network, responded last Thursday.

In July, Twitter sued Elon Musk in the Delaware Court of Chancery, a court that specializes in commercial law, to force him to honor his $44 billion acquisition obligation. The trial is due to begin on October 17th.
