Twitter action lost ground on the stock market on Thursday July 7 after the publication of an article by Washington Post that the takeover of the social network by Elon Musk would be seriously jeopardized, because of the concerns of the multi-billionaire about spam. The Tesla and SpaceX boss’s team has reportedly halted negotiations with one of the investors expected to contribute to the $44 billion acquisition of Twitter.
“Now that Musk’s team has come to the conclusion that Twitter’s figures on fake accounts were not verifiable, they should take drastic measures, said one of the sources” familiar with the matter, details the daily American. On Wall Street, the title of the Californian company lost more than 4% during electronic trading after the close of trading, after a session up slightly (+ 1.52%).
Elon Musk has repeatedly questioned the data transmitted by Twitter on spam and fake accounts and the means put in place to limit their proliferation. In early June, the group’s board of directors agreed to give Elon Musk access to the mountains of data needed to answer his questions on this subject, after the businessman threatened, in an official document, to withdraw his offer.
