Elon Musk received a heated stream of free speech from the Twitterverse after he told Twitter he wanted to abort his $44 billion deal to buy the company.
The powerful right-wing Twitter user, via a letter sent to the social network by his lawyer on Friday, officially claimed that he was scrapping the agreement reached in April because Twitter “appears to have made false and misleading allegations”, including “dramatically underestimating the proportion of spam messages”. and false accounts. It is unclear why the world’s richest individual appears to have failed to conduct due diligence on this matter prior to concluding the takeover agreement; Wall Street analysts indicated that Musk was in fact seeking a price cut given the stock market’s sharp year-to-date decline. Twitter said Friday that it plans to go to court to force Musk to comply with the original terms of his offer.
Naturally, Twitter users were having a field day with this latest development, posting memes, jokes, and barbs about Musk around his face.
