Twitter Sues Elon Musk | gaming pc

Elon Musk tried to pull the plug (opens in new tab) on his attempt to purchase Twitter last week, leading Twitter to threaten legal action to force the deal through. Today Twitter followed through, filing a lawsuit that accuses Musk of refusing to honor his commitment “because the deal he signed no longer serves his personal interests.”

Musk originally offered to buy Twitter for $43.4 billion (opens in new tab) in April, in order to help realize its “potential to be the platform for free speech around the globe.” He entered into a definitive agreement (opens in new tab) to make the purchase just over a week later. But things have gone sideways since then: In May, Musk arbitrarily declared the deal on hold while his team investigated “spam/fake accounts” on Twitter; he later accused Twitter leadership of failing to provide the information required to accurately assess the situation.
