The legal tussle between Elon Musk and Social media giant Twitter is getting intense. The world’s richest man recently cited Peiter Zatko, a whistleblower’s claim over the bot data in order to terminate the $44 billion takeover deal.
Are Elon Musk BOT data Wrong?
As per reports, Twitter has now claimed that Elon Musk own data scientists are not able to support the bot allegations. Earlier, Tesla Chief asserted that the social media platform submitted the wrong bot data. The number of fake accounts running on Twitter is much higher than the company evaluates.
However, this development comes ahead of the big trial starting in October. Charles Gasparino, a fox journalist reported that the Chancery court will rule out the case in favor of Twitter.
He mentioned that Arbs are unconvinced with the whistleblower claims on BOTs. They are unsure that this can help Elon Musk to get a ruling in his favor.
What does Twitter claim?
According to reports, Twitter lawyers in a Delaware court said that documents they received during discovery showed that there are two different consultants were hired by Elon Musk. Cyabra and CounterAction gave an estimate of the number of spam on the social media platform.
They mentioned that there are around 11% and 5%, respectively spam running on Twitter. However, it is claimed that reports were handed to Elon Musk just a day before he made termination plans. Meanwhile, the social media giant is criticizing the methodologies of both consultants.
In order to gain more clarity, Twitter requested the court to force Elon Musk to share more details from the data scientist reports. Lawyers state that they engaged in a pattern of delay and obstruction over the last two months. However, Musk’s lawyers are denying this assertion.
However, the social media giants have asked the court to slap Elon Musk with sanctions over his misconduct of failure to produce Signal messages.
