Elon Musk Terminates Twitter Deal


Elon Musk, the chief executive officer of Tesla and the world’s richest person, said on Friday he was terminating his $44 billion deal to buy Twitter because the social media company had breached multiple provisions of the merger agreement.

Tesla Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk said that the social media company had failed to provide information about fake accounts on the platform.

Shares of Twitter fell 6% in extended trading after closing at $36.81 on Friday.

The stock zoomed to $51.70 when Musk made his $54.20 offer to buy the social media giant on April 25.

Expect their stock to crash on Monday.

In a filing, Musk’s lawyers said Twitter had failed or refused to respond to multiple requests for information on fake or spam accounts on the platform, which is fundamental to the company’s business performance.

In response, Twitter’s chairman Bret Taylor said the social-media giant is prepared to take Musk to court.

Twitter should have provided the information he wanted.

Who can blame Musk? Trying to purchase the platform has led to investigations by our fascist government. The Left is trying to cancel him. And his personal life has become a bullseye.

Twitter was getting a little freer as long as Musk was buying it. That will end.

As Jonathan Turley said, it’s a win for the anti-free speech crowd and a loss for shareholders. People need to go to Gettr or Truth Social or one of the other platforms. Twitter is run by leftist mobs.

Musk will go through the same bs like Trump. The people that once loved him will turn on him. Darkness hates the light because it exposes . .

Imagine if Twitter is dumb enough to sue Musk. Discovery would probably land almost every manager at Twitter in Jail or court for the rest of their lives. Making Rich People Poor is much better then sending them to jail..

The woke leftists at Twitter are so crooked that they cannot provide evidence that a very large portion of the Twitter accounts are fake.

Revealing the actual number would get them sued by businesses who paid good money to post publicity at Twitter.

But the high price of those ads was justified based on FAKE numbers, that is criminal , I am no expert but it might be a RICO violation.

That you sell fake stocks like Bernie Maddoff did
or sell publicity on your site based on fabricated statistics, if you lie about what your product is to make people buy it, it is all the same ; you are a swindler, a criminal.

in short,

The leftists at Twitter are so crooked that they cannot provide evidence they are not crooked!!!

Musk forgets that this is the good old (New) USA.
What was reasonable is now unreasonable.
What was just, is now unjust.
Truth now longer matters, hype is everything!
He better expect to be ripped off for a huge sum as the penalty for reasonableness.

….and the bad lawyers get richer and richer….
