Judge orders Twitter to give Elon Musk Information on Spam Accounts

Elon Musk is in a legal dispute with Twitter over alleged fraud regarding user numbers. Musk seeks information on spam accounts from Twitter, with a judge ordering the company to provide documents from a former executive.

The legal battle between Twitter and Elon Musk currently revolves around an alleged fraud by the company for misrepresenting the number of real active users on its platform. On the other hand,Twitter has denied the accusations and has accused Musk of breaching his agreement to acquire the company and wants him to go through with the deal. Elon Musk’s legal team wanted Twitter to disclose the names of the employees responsible for calculating what percentage of the social media site’s users are bot and spam accounts, so they can have access to the actual numbers. Musk’s legal team requested the judge overseeing the case to oblige Twitter to provide a list of employees working on the team so that the defense team can question them. This Monday, Kathaleen McCormick of the Delaware Court of Chancery ordered Twitter to collect, review and produce documents from former General Manager of Consumer Product Kayvon Beykpour
