Twitter sued Musk last week after he sent a letter to the platform’s board saying he planned to pull out of the $44 billion takeover bid.
If Musk successfully exits his $44 billion deal with Twitter, it will be a blow to conservative hopes of reform at the company.
The lawsuit accuses Musk of having ‘repeatedly disparaged Twitter and the deal.’
The comments come after Trump labeled Musk a ‘bullsh*t artist.’
Tesla’s CEO sent a letter to the company’s board on Friday, and Twitter responded that it would sue to uphold the deal.
The endorsement comes after Musk threatened to pull out of the deal over Twitter’s alleged lack of transparency.
The letter called on SpaceX leadership to ‘publicly address and condemn Elon’s harmful Twitter behavior.’
The reaction on Twitter’s Slack was mostly negative to Musk’s “all hands” meeting yesterday, but, at least on speech, Musk was saying things that shouldn’t be controversial.
Musk said that he would permit a wide range of views on the platform, including content that could be described as ‘extreme’ but was lawful.
Musk’s attorney wrote that Twitter’s refusal to provide data on fake accounts was ‘causing further suspicion…of [what] that data will uncover.’
