Elon Musk no longer wants to buy Twitter not because of bots.
Elon Musk is not done with Twitter yet. After his takeover bid earlier this summer, the eccentric billionaire finally backed down before formally calling off the sale. In question: revelations about the number of bots that exist on the social network. Obviously, such a turn did not go well with investors demanding large sums of money as financial compensation.
However, Twitter did not have its last word. If the topic of bots was widely mentioned by a businessman to justify his refusal to sell, then the company with the blue logo believes that fake accounts are not a good reason to cancel the sale. Especially since this argument would really only be a façade.
World War III as a new argument
According to Twitter, Elon Musk is not afraid of bots, but of the global political situation. The company, which has lost a lot of money in the stock market since it started, just released an SMS sent by a billionaire to his banker weeks after the takeover announcement. We discover that the subject of the false reports is really only a pretext. “Let’s slow down for a few days. Putin’s speech tomorrow is extremely important. There’s no point in buying Twitter if we’re heading for World War III.
Brandi on Twitter this week, on the occasion of a court hearing that was supposed to decide on a possible postponement of a trial scheduled for October, this new piece filed will be proof that the Tesla boss is more concerned about the global economic situation. not the number of fake Twitter accounts. However, lying about the number of bluebird bots could constitute a procedural defect, but does not pass due to financial interest. If he refuses to acquire Twitter, Elon Musk may have to pay a large settlement. There is a billion dollars at stake, not counting the damages the firm could recover in the case.
