I don't know if anyone here has heard but the deal Elon Musk made to buy Twitter, he is pulling out of it. This is due to them lying about bot numbers and other legal matters. I don't think he can actually pull out of this without taking it to court. What do you think will come of this?

I heard. I thought he would have pulled out of the deal a while ago. They clearly don't want to sell and are making it next to impossible. My friend is convinced they are hiding information that actually goes against the people. Like government manipulation and abuse.

I really don't understand the legal end of it but Twitter is suing him over this.

I would not have expected them to just roll over and let him walk away.

@truebaby Yeah, they were too far into the deal. He basically was signed on as the new owner and they had to finish the paperwork. It is going to be a mess! Glad I left that platform years ago.

@kikobeep I think the platform is fine, the people and their politics ruined it. It is so political and hateful now. I used to be on there to connect with friends and social circles online in one spot. I use Discord now.

This is just going to end up being a mess and serve as a distraction. The US has so many issues. They need to focus on fixing their economy and their issues with the government!

I heard Twitter won't let Elon pull out of this deal. They will give him a hard time.

I think he wanted this. He wanted information on bots and they refused to give it to them so now they have to show it in court so he backed them into a corner on purpose.

@dear_bae A friend of mine said this because of something he posted on Twitter. Someone made a meme of him and he is acting like he was playing 4D chess and maybe he was? I don't know. I don't really care about the platform. So many people are mean, negative, and just horrible people on there.

This is going to just be another messy battle in a court somewhere.

I feel like both involved parties are being so immature. Twitter should have been up front and honest and Elon shouldn't have been making jokes.

I heard that he is very likely to lose in court and be forced to buy Twitter as well as pay for all the legal fees. I guess we will find out in October.

@soulie I have a feeling it will be a huge distraction for people which is good and bad.

Either way we will find out what happens in the fall for sure.

A friend of mine who is on Twitter has said Elon has been quiet recently so I am wondering if this is down to legal stuff taking place over Twitter. Maybe he was told to remain quiet on the issue for now.
