It was claimed that the U-turn of Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, who was in court with the social media platform by leaving the deal to buy Twitter for $ 44 billion last April, stemmed from the fear of going to the 3rd World War.
“LET’S WAIT FOR PUTIN’S EXPLANATION”
According to the news of Sputnik Turkish from Business Insider, in the messages he sent to a banker at Morgan Stanley, one of the financiers of Musk’s purchase of Twitter, on May 8, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s May 9 Victory Day He said they had to wait for him to speak.
In his speech on the 77th anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany, Putin said that they made the only right decision by launching a special military operation against Ukraine on February 24, in the face of the West’s preparations to invade Russia.
THINK IT WILL BE A WORLD WAR 3
In the lawsuit between Twitter and Musk, these messages came to the fore. At the hearing on September 6, Twitter’s lawyer read the messages sent by the Tesla CEO:
“Let’s slow down for a few days. Putin’s speech tomorrow is really important. If we’re heading towards World War III, there’s no point in buying Twitter.”
TWITTER’S LAWYER: PROVIDED TO STEP BACK DUE TO PERSONAL FINANCIAL CONCERNS
Twitter’s lawyer said the texts proved that Musk had breached the contract and backed out from the deal due to personal financial concerns.
MUSK’S LAWYER: FIND ANY EVIDENCE TO PROVE THE TWITTER THEORY
Tesla CEO’s lawyer, on the other hand, argued that it is completely absurd to present the messages to the court in this context, and that this will be understood when the full messaging chain is published, saying, “Twitter has not been able to find any evidence to prove its theory. Twitter’s theory about what really happened has nothing to do with what is really going on.” .
The full-text chain is expected to appear in court next week.
FAKE AND SPAM ACCOUNTS
When Musk exited the deal to buy Twitter in July, he accused the social media company of underestimating the number of fake and spam accounts.
Cleaning the platform of bot accounts and verifying all human users were among the changes Musk promised to implement after effectively turning Twitter into a private company.
CASE IS IN OCTOBER
Musk, who was sued by Twitter for not complying with the purchase agreement, responded with a counterclaim. Within the scope of the case, a 5-day marathon hearing will be held at the beginning of October.
