2:06 pm
business stories ever. and i think it started off as a circus show and attending his circus. sher ah, the story started in april when musk announced his intention to buy twitter a move 1st opposed by the company. they eventually reached an agreement with musk, seeking billions from other investors to fund his bid. but within weeks he said the deal was an ice citing concern about the number of bots and fake accounts on the platform. twitter states that less than 5 percent of its accounts, the spam musk says he thinks it's closer to 20 percent. the company isn't giving up without a fight. twitters chairman brit taylor tweeted that the board plans to pursue legal action to enforce the merger agreement. he wrote, we are confident we will prevail. musk once claimed to have big plans to grow twitter, the republican leaning billionaire wanted to let form a u. s. president donald trump tweet again and argued for looser freedom of speech rules. unless content restrictions for the entrepreneur behind electric,

cars and spacecraft, it could be a costly crash landing. the company could seek a break up fee of $1000000000.00. let's get more from did of your reports. actual do loy, who has been following the story. hello joel. i don't know what you've been out to compiling everything, but how did we get it? this has been described as a corporate soap opera, alyssa, forget that it actually started from a loan mosque. it was his idea to try and by twitter or twitter didn't seek him out . he then offered more than 40 percent above the company's share price for the deal . he then had to go and get the money which he didn't actually have, and he had to go and find other investors and banks to raise the capital. and he actually still doesn't have it altogether. he had to sell off some of his, his teslas stockman. so we did learned that the world's richest man on paper doesn't actually have that much money in the bank. now, his tweets on this topic of swung really from positive and negative to completely bizarre. but interestingly, he did not tweet about this announcement trying to cancel the deal. this came from
2:08 pm
a statement from his lawyers. that is definitely very interesting. now here's what he says. he's claiming he was misled. now, what do you make of that argument? well, some legal experts say he's gonna have trouble standing that up in court because twitter doesn't make a secret of the fact that it has a problem with bots and fate accounts. and he puts a number around 5 percent. and now twitter, what the musk is saying is that he thinks that number is far higher and that he hasn't been given all the information. but it could be argued that he didn't know about this problem before because he in fact tweeted about it and spoke about it before he made the bid for the company. now twitter is rejected his claims and it says basically see you in court, which is another twist because the camper went from rejecting his a bid to try and take over the company to now trying to enforce it in court. what they could be trying to do is aim for some kind of settlement. now some people speculate that marx must, might be trying to distract from some other problems that are going on at his other company, tesla, which is also experiencing problems right now. supply chain issues, in fact,
