Entrepreneur Elon Musk, founder and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, explained that Twitter must present evidence that the number of false accounts on its social network is less than 5% for the purchase offer for 44,000 million dollars to go ahead.
On Friday, Musk himself already decided to “temporarily” suspend the agreement “pending details that support the calculation that fake/spam accounts represent less than 5% of users.”
In a new message posted on the social network this week, Musk noted that the social network’s CEO recently refused to show proof that fake accounts are less than 5%. “The deal can’t go forward until it does.”
In relation to the calculation made by some analysis firms that the number of false accounts could reach 20%, Musk indicated that the figure could be “much higher”. Faced with a message from another user assuring that the number of false accounts could be above 50%, Musk has responded “exactly”.
