Twitter Gave Elon Musk Additional Data And Is Waiting For His Decision

This week, Elon Musk received new information from the Twitter management regarding the social network’s operations, it was revealed. This was included in a recent Business Insider resource article.

The source claims that last week, Musk’s attorneys wrote to Twitter claiming that the most recent set of information provided by the social media platform was “not enough” to decide whether to purchase Twitter. It purportedly contained information on the devices those individuals were tweeting from as well as recordings of the users’ tweets.

According to Business Insider, Musk was unhappy with the data provided by the social network because, contrary to what his team indicated, he was unable to run his own testing to identify potentially fraudulent accounts.

Real-time API data is part of the new package. The array passed in, according to the resource sources, is a “data stream” of tweets and other platform activities that is often intended for particular developers.

Elon Musk got additional data from Twitter.

Elon Musk is receiving more user data via Twitter. Musk is still dissatisfied despite receiving a “firehose” of data from the business. According to Insider, his attorneys allegedly wrote Twitter another letter last week stating that the material was insufficient. According to a person familiar with the matter, Twitter responded by agreeing last week to provide Musk with even more information, including real-time API data.

Musk has previously questioned Twitter’s own estimate that phony accounts make up fewer than 5% of daily active user populations and said he wanted to run his own experiments to determine the truth of the claim. Twitter’s board of directors approved the sale of the social network to Elon Musk at a meeting this week, and shareholders were asked to endorse the choice. In line with expectations, this group could decide whether to approve the purchase in late July or early August.
