Elon Musk Tries Again To Terminate Twitter Deal

Advertisements

Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company. 

Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. 

The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC last week, The Verge reports.

Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. 

Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed last week.

Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July, saying that Twitter misled him about the number of bots on its platform, and that the company wouldn’t give him access to the information he needed to make his own determinations. This is despite the fact that he was given access to the “firehose” API that contains every tweet.
