UNITED STATES - Analysts suggest that Elon Musk may be looking to get out of his Twitter deal after the company’s stocks fell to 4% in pre-market trading on Friday, 8 July. The stock’s drop came after it was published that the billionaire’s deal to acquire the social media giant was in “serious” jeopardy.
Musk’s team has reportedly refrained from certain discussions surrounding the purchase. According to Business Insider South Africa, his team determined that it cannot verify Twitter’s data and amount of spam accounts on the platform.
The world’s richest person temporarily put the deal on hold in May after he wanted to probe Twitter’s claim surrounding spam accounts. Musk’s team reportedly did not have enough information to judge Twitter’s business proposal.
Mybroadband reported that Twitter said that spam bots represent less than 5% of its user base. A Twitter spokesperson said the company would continue to cooperatively share information with Musk to consummate the transaction in accordance with the terms of the merger agreement.
