According to reports, Musk is upset that Twitter isn’t releasing the names of employees who are specifically responsible for determining how much of Twitter’s customer base is made up of spam and robot accounts.


This was revealed by individuals who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the matter.

According to the sources, Musk’s lawyers have asked the judge in the case to order Twitter to identify the employees so that the defense can obtain their records and question them.

Under seal, a letter was filed Tuesday asking Delaware Chancery Court Judge Kathaleen St. J. McCormick to compel Twitter to hand over the names. Twitter’s attorneys have five business days under the court’s rules to decide what should be redacted from the filing as proprietary information.


A spokesman for Twitter declined to comment on the filing.

The letter comes as the Tesla Inc co-founder announced on Tuesday that he is selling $6.9 billion in Tesla stock to avoid a sudden sale if the deal to acquire Twitter is forced through. As a result, some analysts believe the billionaire will settle the case.


According to the report, Twitter has handed over the names of “records custodians,” who aren’t as familiar with the data at issue. They claim Musk wants McCormick to compel Twitter to reveal the names of the employees in charge of monitoring those accounts.


Both parties have issued a slew of subpoenas to banks, investors, and lawyers involved in the teetering transaction in order to gather evidence for an October 17 trial.


“It’s another salvo in the discovery wars that are common in this type of litigation,” Carl Tobias, a law professor at the University of Richmond who specializes in securities and merger and acquisition law, said. “Both sides are jockeying for position by focusing on different types of information.”
Battle of the bots

Twitter’s lawyers claim it will only take four days in court to prove Musk is using questions about spam and bot accounts as a pretext to back out of the deal. The company stated that it has turned over all of its information regarding those accounts and that it intends to make Musk pay the $54.20 per share that he initially agreed to.

Musk claims in court filings that Twitter’s handover of the material has been lax, and that the company has failed to produce evidence that spam bots account for less than 5% of its active users, as stated in regulatory filings. He claims this gives him a legal basis to cancel the buyout.

He claims According to Twitter’s disclosures, the actual number of monetizable daily active users, or mDAU as the industry calls it, is 65 million lower than the 238 million claimed by the company. He also claims that Twitter misrepresents how many of those users view advertising, which is the company’s primary source of revenue. According to his estimates, less than 16 million users see the majority of ads and should be considered monetizable.


News Update?Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal Sitting Begins October 26

Latest Politics updatein nigeria

Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal will on October 26 begin a full hearing of the petition filed by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) against the declaration of Senator Ademola Adeleke as governor-elect.

Lifestyle Nigeria reports that the tribunal made this pronouncement after concluding the pre-hearing session on Thursday.

The tribunal was asked to dismiss the applications of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), seeking the discontinuation of the petition brought to it by Governor Oyetola.

Counsel for Oyetola and the APC, Lasun Sanusi, SAN, at the sitting of the tribunal argued that Adeleke’s, PDP’s and INEC’s reliance on a Federal Court High judgment was nothing but an abuse of court process.

Sanusi argued this while replying to separate applications of the trio, seeking the dismissal of the petition based on the already appealed Federal High Court judgment disqualifying Oyetola from contesting the election.

Citing Supreme Court decisions in the case of Jegede Vs INEC, 2021, 14NWLR, Pt 1797, page 409, the counsel said the court had ruled that the signatories to the letter conveying the nomination of a candidate were not the nominators; rather, the nomination was done by party members at the congress, hence, the judgment could not stand.

Meanwhile, the counsel for INEC, Prof. Paul Ananaba, SAN; counsel for Adeleke, Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN and counsel for the PDP, Dr. Alex Izinyon, SAN, agreed that any decision the tribunal would take on the matter would have to wait until the Appeal Court and the Supreme Court decided on it.

They noted that they just decided to argue the applications to have it on record, a position which the tribunal agreed with and put on record.

Also, in other applications totalling nine by the three respondents, they asked the tribunal to strike out some paragraphs of the petition on the grounds that they were either lumped together or not related to the 2022 election.

In response to each of the applications, Sanusi said all the cases cited by the respondents were misconceived, adding that they were not applicable in the instance case.

He cited the case of INEC Vs Otti, 2016, 8NWLR, where the Supreme Court hinted that INEC was supposed to be neutral, arguing that all the processes filed before the panel have not portrayed the commission’s neutrality.

Sanusi further argued that the applications filed by the respondents were only meant to prevent the tribunal from focusing on hearing the petition on merit, asking the panel to dismiss the applications.

Subsequently, counsel for all parties in the matter agreed to begin the full hearing starting with the calling of witnesses on October 26.

In his ruling, the tribunal declared the pre-hearing session concluded and announced that the pre-hearing conference report would be presented on October 17.
