Twitter Opens Lawsuit Against Elon Musk

Twitter has filed a lawsuit against Elon Musk in an effort to force him to follow through with his deal to buy the company. The suit filed in Delaware yesterday comes after Musk sent a letter to Twitter’s top lawyer late Friday saying he wanted to terminate the $44 billion acquisition agreement. The letter to the company said Twitter was in ‘material breach of multiple provisions’ of the deal, claiming the company had withheld data Musk requested in order to evaluate the number of bots and spam accounts on the platform. Twitter’s team sent a letter to Musk on Monday saying his attempted termination was ‘invalid and wrongful’ claiming that Musk himself had also violated the agreement and demanded that he follow through with the deal.
