The American entrepreneur Elon Musk’s request for data transmission from Twitter employees about the operation of the social network was only partially approved by the court.
Twitter was required by Judge Kathleen McCormick to turn over information that Kaivon Bacpur, a former member of the development department, held.
The latter was said to have had access to data and papers pertaining to the investigation of bot activity on the social network.
The magazine claims that Ilona Musk’s attorneys have sent yet another request to Twitter for further information on platform usage statistics and data gathering and processing procedures.
Twitter was launched by Kaiwon Beikpour in 2018. The leader of the social network was Jack Dorsey. Beikpour quit his job in May of this year.
A billionaire made an offer to purchase Twitter in April 2022 for $54,2 per share. Management of social networks accepted the conditions.
Musk, though, put the process on hold in May after hearing that social media audiences had exceeded expectations. In response, Twitter’s shareholders filed a lawsuit against Tesla’s CEO, charging him with market manipulation due to the “chaotic process” of taking over the business.
Musk made the decision to end the social network arrangement public in July. He was sued by the business, which demanded that he fulfill his responsibilities and complete the transaction.
The billionaire filed a counterclaim on July 29, although it is not yet publicly accessible. If Twitter disclosed how it chose the 100 accounts and how to verify their legitimacy, he said he would agree to the contract on the original terms.
Due to its attempt to take over Elon Musk’s social network, Binance, a part of the cryptocurrency exchange, was recently subpoenaed by Twitter’s legal team. The businessman’s potential creditors, investors, and financial advisors were all served with subpoenas.
Recall that Elon Musk invited Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal to a public discussion about the number of bots using the social network.
