Netizens Slam Elon Musk As He Backs Out Of $44 Billion Deal, Twitter To Sue Him, Musk Reacts
Elon Musk, the famous business tycoon, keeps making headlines for some reasons every now and then. Some time back, he took social media by storm when he announced that he wanted to buy the micro-blogging site Twitter in order to make it better than ever. Elon Musk expressed his wishes to add new features in Twitter, authenticate all the users, get rid of spambots and increase trust by making the algorithm open source.
There was some confusion related to the deal as many thought that job of the Twitter CEO Parag Agarwal was uncertain and the idea of Elon Musk’s free speech is quite different from that of high officials of the Twitter management but the deal got finalized for $44 billion. However in the month of May, Elon Musk put the deal on hold as he alleged that the Twitter management has failed to provide him with concrete data about fake accounts and bots despite his repeated requests.
Twitter has always maintained that the number of fake bots is less than 5 percent of its total users but now Elon Musk has backed out of the deal citing that the Twitter management hasn’t paid heed to his requests of providing genuine data in regard to spambots.
The Twitter management has got really upset with this decision of Elon Musk and now they are getting ready to take the Tesla owner to court in order to get this deal done.
Meanwhile Twitterati was also not happy with Elon Musk for backing out in this manner and this is how people reacted:

So when Elon Musk pretended to buy Twitter and exclaimed “anything that comes out in the next few weeks is a political hit-job” — was all to cover up for having twins with his employee?

You might think that Elon Musk backing out of a $44 bIllini Twitter deal is bad, but it’s nothing compared to when he backed out of his $6 billion promise to the UN to help solve world hunger.
