Twitter is asking Elon Musk for $1 billion. Things are getting worse between social networking site Twitter and billionaire Elon Musk, who has finally canceled his $44 billion takeover bid. This Monday, Twitter accused the businessman of wanting to slow down the lawsuit she is bringing against him for failing to comply with her obligations. The company said that if Elon Musk is ordered to complete the deal, months of additional litigation could be needed to complete the debt financing, which expires next April. For this reason, Twitter asked the judge to reject Musk’s offer to hold a trial in February. Therefore, litigation is expected in October, and Twitter, in particular, has asked a Delaware judge to order it to carry out the takeover at an agreed price of $54.20 per share.

– Apple will reimburse its customers $50 million for a dark box with defective keyboards. On Monday, the Cupertino-based firm agreed to a $50 million class-action lawsuit settlement over the company’s “butterfly keyboard.” Payments can range from $50 to $395 for people who have one or more keyboards replaced. These are Macbook, Macbook Air and Macbook Pro laptops sold between 2015 and 2019. Note, however, that Apple did not admit any fault or fault in the settlement of the dispute. The keyboards in question are prone to crashes and can be damaged by a speck of dust, causing the keyboard to repeat letters unexpectedly or not register keystrokes at all. The deal still needs to be approved by a judge.
