Twitter has been ordered to provide Elon Musk with more information about spam and bot accounts as part of the social media company’s legal battle to complete the $44 billion (roughly Rs. 3,51,200 crore) acquisition of the platform by the billionaire entrepreneur. Twitter has been asked to provide information on about 9,000 accounts surveyed last year. Musk said the American tech company’s misleading information about the number of spam and bot accounts was a valid reason for pulling out of its deal with Twitter.
According to Bloomberg, Twitter was a micro-blogging site commanded Delaware Chancery Court Judge Kathleen St. J. McCormick will hand over more information regarding spam and bot accounts to Musk. The company is currently struggling to complete its $44 billion (roughly Rs. 3,51,200 crore) acquisition of the Muskala platform.
Twitter has been asked to provide information on about 9,000 accounts it surveyed last year in hopes of identifying which were handled by humans and which were spam accounts.
Twitter had previously tried to withhold this information from Musk citing privacy concerns.
As reported earlier, Musk said Twitter’s misleading information about the number of spam and bot accounts gave him a valid reason to back out of his $54.20 (roughly Rs 4,300) per share bid for the social media platform.
