Twitter Takeover Drama Continues As Elon Musk Refuses To Move Ahead Without More Data While Company Loses More Execs

Elon Musk is very serious about not moving ahead with his mega $44 billion Twitter takeover deal because he feels there’s more to the fake account data matter.

The billionaire recently began a whole fiasco when he accused Twitter of failing to provide accurate estimates of fake accounts.

But no matter how much Twitter CEO tries to reassure the Tesla owner that they’ve done everything correctly, he just won’t listen.

Some may perceive Musk’s move as a tactical one to buy more time or perhaps lower the price of the deal. And the way things are moving, that just might be the case.

For now, the world’s richest person wants more data in terms of proof of how there are only 5% of accounts are fake. And until he doesn’t get that, he’s not moving an inch.

CEO Agrawal stated through a tweet that it’s not possible to make the strategies used for calculations public but Musk responded by adding a poop emoji as a reply.

Before that, we saw the Twitter CEO release a whole thread on why he and his firm are adamant that these figures are correct, taking into consideration previous records from the past too. But again, it’s not convincing enough for Mr. Musk.

Speaking at the All-In Summit recently, Musk claimed that it’s beyond impossible for the CEO of Twitter to come out and say that those making comments on Tweets are 95% real. In addition to that, Musk added that he suspects that the figures are at least 4 to 5 times greater than that projected. And he’s not happy about it!

The billionaire feels he’s been lied to and according to him, it’s just not acceptable anymore because he likes public filings that are based on nothing but the truth.

On the other hand, we’re seeing some more startling matters unfold. Amid the chaos and drama of Twitter’s transition, at least three more executives have called it quits. And as you can see, they could be least bothered about the final decision.

Just last week, we saw the company’s CEO state how their product leader and head of the revenue department would be making an exit because they were told that their services were no longer needed.

And if you ask us, these are some pretty big names who have left. Clearly, Musk intended for such a shakeup, to begin with, and he’s certainly going on the right track.

The fact that so many leaders of the company are leaving by their own will or because they’ve been asked to is beyond overwhelming. Now, this could make the CEO a more hardened leader in case the Tesla owner decides to back out on the deal completely.

As far as things are going, critics are predicting that Musk will likely go ahead with the deal sooner or later but when is the question on so many people’s minds.

In other news, we’re just being informed about how Elon Musk was actually thinking of beginning his own social media firm. And that’s well before his Twitter acquisition deal came into play.

The news came after a new recent filing was made public today regarding a meeting with Elon Musk, Twitter’s CEO, and the chairman too. And that is when the billionaire shed light on a little history and his plans of starting his own social media company.

Hence, Musk had two things on his mind, either join the board or make his own version of a company that would be Twitter’s new competitor.

Interestingly, neither of those happenings have taken place and instead, we’re in the middle of a never-ending drama regarding the platform’s takeover by the billionaire.

The new filing also went on to mention how Musk repeated his decision about thinking of his new social media startup in another meeting that was held after the first one.

At the moment, there is certainly no news on whether or not Elon Musk could possibly be thinking of a revival for that particular thought. But again with a person like him, you can definitely expect the unexpected.

Also, in case he does move ahead with his plans, we could soon be seeing him following in the footsteps of former US President Donald Trump who ventured out with Truth Social following his Twitter ban.
