Elon Musk Responds To Twitter’s Lawsuit Over Broken Buyout Agreement With A Laughing Meme
Musk’s tweet to his 100 million devotees expressed: “They need to drive me to purchase Twitter in court.” Twitter truly does for sure have grounds to look for a request expecting Musk to purchase the business, in spite of him taking out in a disagreement regarding the quantity of spam or bot accounts on the stage.
However, as has frequently been the situation with the actual arrangement, the world’s most extravagant man doesn’t seem to genuinely take the danger. “Presently they need to uncover bot data in court,” says one subtitle in the tweet, shown by a progression of photographs of Musk chuckling loudly. It was trailed by an image of the one-of-a-kind activity star Chuck Norris at a chessboard, with Musk tweeting under it: “Chuck mate.”
In spite of being encircled by the highest quality counsel available, Musk has had a flighty relationship with the legitimate details of his currently deserted $44bn Twitter takeover. From one viewpoint, his lawful group has recorded firmly contended divulgences against the arrangement, referring to different provisions in the understanding. On the other, he posts crap emoticons at individuals he is haggling with.
To be sure, the filthy animation coordinated by Twitter’s CEO, Parag Agrawal, most likely broke a consolidation understanding that Musk has now reneged on. Over two months prior, Musk consented to an arrangement to purchase the online entertainment stage that contained a proviso where he promised not to “belittle” the organization or its representatives.

In 2018, Musk reached a settlement with the US monetary watchdog over a tweet in which he said he had “subsidizing got” for a proposition to take Tesla off the financial exchange.
