He has currently put the deal on hold until Twitter shares details on spam bots. Twitter had previously said that its platform included bot accounts of less than 5% in the last quarter. Musk, however, suspects it could be more than that, and has put a hold on the deal.
Musk is also facing some problems with Tesla. Recently, he asked all of Tesla’s employees to return to office or quit. He also said that employees are required to work a minimum of 40-hours per week. However, it became clear that the office was not ready for employees to return, with seats missing and inadequate internet connection.
