Elon Musk threatens to cancel Twitter deal entirely as he asks for more information on spam and fake accounts

The Independent says Elon Musk has suggested he could pull his deal to buy Twitter entirely, in a letter asking for more information on the platform.

Mr Musk has repeatedly suggested that the site has more spam and fake accounts than Twitter has publicly admitted.

Now he has written to Twitter, through its chief legal officer, asking for more information on how many of the accounts on the platform are actually real.

Twitter has offered to provide more detailed information on its own testing methodologies, either in writing or by speaking to the billionaire. But Mr Musk said that he wanted to do the testing himself, calling Twitter’s testing methodologies “lax”.
