The statement of businessman Elon Musk about his intention to check random accounts on Twitter for authenticity caused accusations from lawyers of the social network. This was told by Musk, who planned the acquisition of Twitter.
According to the entrepreneur, he was contacted by the lawyers of the social network and accused of violating a non-disclosure agreement as part of the deal, reports RIA Novosti.
Twitter lawyers considered Musk’s message about a check to identify the number of fake accounts to be such a violation. The businessman said earlier that for this, his team will check a random sample of 100 social network subscribers.
Musk assured that he was not joking and “it really happened.” However, the businessman did not specify whether this event would somehow affect the completion of the deal to acquire Twitter.
Currently deal has been suspended before receiving results about fake social media accounts.
