Elon Musk Says Twitter Acquisition Only Advances If Company Shows It Has Less Than 5% Fake Accounts

Billionaire Elon Musk said this Tuesday that he will not move forward with a deal with Twitter’s chief executive, Parag Agrawal, if he does not publicly show that the application has less than 5% of fake accounts.

After a string of messages between the two, Elon Musk responded with a provocative ’emoji’ (smiling excrement).

The comments come after the Tesla founder pushed investors to the limit by announcing that he was temporarily suspending the purchase of the platform – which he had announced for nearly $44 billion -, only to later rectify this information and indicate that he remained committed to its acquisition.

On Friday, Elon Musk ‘tweeted’ that the deal with Twitter has been temporarily suspended, pending details that support the estimate that fake accounts represent less than 5% of users.

However, a few hours later, the businessman changed his mind and ‘tweeted’ that he was still ‘committed to the acquisition’.
