Twitter, which is attempting to force Elon Musk to consummate his buyout deal, reportedly cited a tweet by Musk in which he posted a poop emoji to claim he publicly disparaged them.

The legal complaint from Twitter alleges that Musk violated his $44 billion takeover agreement by disparaging the company; Musk has threatened to quit the deal over concerns about bots and fake accounts.

Musk’s questions regarding the way Twitter handled spam and fake accounts prompted Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal’s protestations claiming it was not possible for Twitter to determine which accounts are fake “on any given day.”

Musk had tweeted that he would prioritize removing “spam bots” from Twitter in April; in early May, Twitter declared in a filing that false or spam accounts represented less than 5% of its monetizable daily active users between January and March. during the first quarter.

“Twitter deal temporarily on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users,” Musk tweeted on May 13, adding, “The bots are angry at being counted.”

On May 16, Agrawal issued a series of tweets defending his company, saying, “First, let me state the obvious: spam harms the experience for real people on Twitter, and therefore can harm our business. As such, we are strongly incentivized to detect and remove as much spam as we possibly can, every single day. Anyone who suggests otherwise is just wrong.”

“Our actual internal estimates for the last four quarters were all well under 5% – based on the methodology outlined above. The error margins on our estimates give us confidence in our public statements each quarter,” Agrawal continued.

“Unfortunately, we don’t believe that this specific estimation can be performed externally, given the critical need to use both public and private information (which we can’t share),” he added. “Externally, it’s not even possible to know which accounts are counted as mDAUs on any given day.”

Musk simply replied with this:

“So how do advertisers know what they’re getting for their money? This is fundamental to the financial health of Twitter,” Musk added.

Last Friday, Musk’s lawyer alleged Twitter was “in material breach of multiple provisions” of the takeover; he stated that Twitter deal did not offer data Musk requested to determine who many fake accounts existed. On Monday, Twitter’s attorneys said Musk terminating the deal was “invalid and wrongful.”
