Democrats have been in a constant state of dread over the thought of Elon Musk buying Twitter.
They want the social media platform to remain a left-biased sandbox.
But Musk discovered one shocking development that could blow up the Twitter deal.
The Left explored every desperate angle to stop Elon Musk from buying Twitter and taking it private.
But Musk’s offer of $44 billion was impossible to pass up without the board of directors neglecting their fiduciary responsibility based on the company’s worth.
Many left-wing outlets smeared Musk, and investigations were launched into Musk and his purchase.
However, the deal could fall apart for a completely different reason: fake accounts on the platform.
Musk announced the deal was “on hold” until he sorted just how many bogus users populated Twitter.
Now, Musk is requiring more information from Twitter, and leadership will not hand it over.
The Wall Street Journal reported that “Elon Musk threatened to terminate his deal to buy Twitter in a letter accusing the company of not complying with his request for data on the number of spam and fake accounts on the social-media platform. Mr. Musk said Twitter has refused to provide the data necessary for him to facilitate his own evaluation of the number of spam and fake accounts. In April, Twitter accepted Mr. Musk’s $44 billion bid to take over the company and go private.”
Twitter’s dishonesty might be the saving grace for leftists at the company.
However, fake accounts could present a legal challenge for Twitter.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is currently suing the social media giant over the issue of bot accounts.
Paxton said, “Texans rely on Twitter’s public statements that nearly all its users are real people…It matters not only for regular Twitter users, but also Texas businesses and advertisers who use Twitter for their livelihoods.”
If Twitter is inflating its value with spam accounts, then that could open the company up to fraud.
Musk faces an uphill battle to reform the company.
An undercover journalist for Project Veritas got a Twitter Senior Engineer admitting on camera that “Twitter does not believe in free speech…Elon believes in free speech…Our jobs are at stake. He’s a capitalist and we weren’t really operating as capitalists, more like very socialist. Like, we’re all like commie as f*ck.”
Musk is already scratching the surface of the massive organizational problems within Twitter.
