Elon Musk said that if Twitter Inc. can provide its method of sampling 100 accounts and how it confirms the accounts are real, its $44 billion deal to buy the company should continue on its original terms.
“However, if their filings with the SEC turn out to be materially false, then that shouldn’t be the case,” Musk tweeted early Saturday.
Twitter on Thursday dismissed Musk’s claims that he was tricked into signing the deal to buy the social media company, saying it was “implausible and contrary to fact.”
Musk made those claims in a countersuit filed under seal last Friday, which was made public Thursday.
