Elon Musk Iconic Reply
Elon Musk Iconic Reply: Elon Musk today took a dig at the microblogging platform’s leadership in his signature style, two days after he withdrew from a $44 billion deal to buy Twitter.
The Tesla Inc CEO shared a meme from his official handle amid the countdown to a major legal battle after the Twitter board threatened to take legal action to enforce the merger agreement. Musk’s lawyers have said Twitter failed to respond to multiple requests for information on fake or spam accounts on the platform.
Mr Musk shared a grid today – the first column contained pictures of him laughing, and the second column contained his comments on the Twitter deal.
The first comment read, “He said I can’t buy Twitter”. Next Grid added, “Then, they won’t disclose bot information.”
This was followed by a reference to the Twitter board’s threat of legal action: “Now, they want to force me to buy Twitter in court.”

The last grid, featuring a photo of Mr Musk laughing out loud, reads, “Now, he must disclose bot information in court.”
Data on bots or fake accounts was one of Musk’s major demands as he announced his decision to take over Twitter.
“As described below, Mr. Musk is terminating the merger agreement because Twitter is in material breach of several provisions of that agreement,” read a letter sent by his team.
In short, Twitter has not provided information that Musk intended to facilitate Twitter’s identification, collection and disclosure of the most relevant information sought in Musk’s original requests, despite its repeated, detailed explanations for nearly two years month requested.”
Twitter Boar president Brett Tylow has said the board will take legal action to enforce the merger agreement. “The Twitter Board is committed to closing the transaction at the agreed price and terms with Mr. Musk and plans to take legal action to enforce the merger agreement,” he tweeted after Musk pulled out of the deal.
Twitter has reportedly hired a New York-based law firm to sue Elon Musk and is likely to file suit next week.
