The lawsuit will be a prolonged legal battle as Twitter seeks to hold Musk to his deal to pay USD 54.20 per share
Mumbai: Tesla CEO Elon Musk was sued by Twitter on Tuesday for violating the $44 billion deal to buy the social media platform. Twitter asked a Delaware court to order the world’s richest person to complete the merger at the agreed $54.20 per Twitter share. Minutes after this news surfaced online, Musk took to the microblogging site and just simply tweeted, “Oh the irony lol.”
Earlier on Monday, before the lawsuit was filed, Elon Musk tweeted a meme mocking the progress of the $44 billion acquisition bid. In the meme, Musk has shared ‘his reactions’ to the twists and turns in the Twitter takeover saga. The meme reads: “They said I could not buy Twitter. Then they wouldn’t bot info. Now they want to force me to buy Twitter in court. Now they have to disclose bot info in court.
