What happened now? So far, the most unsurprising news of the year is that Twitter is suing Elon Musk after he dropped a $44 billion bid to buy the platform. The company, which wants to force Musk to complete the deal, is using some of the Tesla boss’s tweets as evidence that he viewed the acquisition as nothing more than a joke.

Twitter lawyers wrote in their lawsuit filed in Delaware that Musk “refuses to honor his obligations to Twitter and its shareholders because the deal he signed no longer serves his self-interest,” adding that the company has sued him. to comply with their legal obligations.

Despite these actions, the lawsuit alleges that Musk “showed little interest in understanding Twitter’s process for evaluating spam accounts” and that his “increasingly outlandish requests” were made so that he could back out of the deal. It is also claimed that Twitter has gone to great lengths to accommodate these requests, despite Musk’s claims to the contrary.

Musk didn’t specifically write about the lawsuit, though he did post a photo of Elden Ring’s Malenia, Miquella’s Blade, who is incredibly hard to beat.
