Further, Musk had previously attempted on abandoning the deal due to the matter of spam bots and fake accounts on the social media platform with Musk accusing the top executives at Twitter of misleading him.

After Twitter had sued Musk in Delaware, Musk agreed to continue with his acquisition of Twitter for USD 44 billion at USD 54.20 per share.

With Elon Musk now owning twitter, his specific plans for the company still remain unclear, as well as who shall fill in the shoes of the top executives at Twitter.

Most especially with previous reports of Musk’s plans to cut jobs at Twitter by as much as 75% and with other reports saying that Musk had retracted his statement and doesn’t plan to lay off as many employees.
