Elon Musk said that if Twitter Inc. will be able to provide its method of sampling the 100 accounts and how it will confirm that the accounts are genuine, its deal to buy the company for $44 billion should proceed on its original terms.
“However, if their SEC filings are found to be materially false, they shouldn’t be,” Musk tweeted early Saturday.
In response to a Twitter user asking if the SEC was investigating the company’s “questionable claims,” Musk tweeted, “Good question, why aren’t they?”.
Twitter declined to comment on the tweet when contacted Reuters.
Twitter on Thursday dismissed Musk’s claim that he was tricked into signing a deal to buy the social media company, saying it was “implausible and untrue.”
“According to Musk, the billionaire multi-company founder, who was advised by Wall Street bankers and lawyers, was duped by Twitter into signing a $44 billion merger agreement. This story is as implausible and untrue as it sounds,” Twitter said in a statement on Thursday.
Musk filed a countersuit against Twitter on July 29, escalating his legal battle with the social media company over his attempt to back out of the $44 billion purchase.
