The news of Tesla CEO Elon Musk buying Twitter was one of the biggest announcements in the tech industry. However, Musk later pulled out of the USD 44 billion Twitter deal leading to a rift between him and the micro-blogging platform. Musk has even been sued by Twitter for breaking the deal. And now, according to a new report, Musk has sent a warning message to Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal and CFO Ned Segal, saying that the company’s lawyers were trying to cause trouble and they need to stop.
As per the report, Musk had sent the message on June 28, and said “Your lawyers are using these conversations to cause trouble. That needs to stop,” as quoted in the report by Business Insider Africa. It can be known that the message was sent after the micro-blogging platform asked Musk how he would finance the Twitter deal.
Before stepping out of the Twitter deal, Musk had been dropping hints of the same over his Twitter handle. Recently, on July 11th, Musk shared a meme over his Twitter account regarding the deal. The meme read, “They said I couldn’t buy Twitter, then they wouldn’t disclose BOT info, now they want to force me to buy Twitter in court, now they have to disclose BOT Info in court.”
It can be known that Musk had on July 9, finally terminated the deal. However, Twitter has taken the matter to court in order to stop him from doing so. Twitter chairman Bret Taylor tweeted on July 13th, “Twitter has filed a lawsuit in the Delaware Court of Chancery to hold Elon Musk accountable to his contractual obligations.”
While, earlier on July 9th, he said, “The Twitter Board is committed to closing the transaction on the price and terms agreed upon with Mr. Musk and plans to pursue legal action to enforce the merger agreement. We are confident we will prevail in the Delaware Court of Chancery.”
