MADRID, 17 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Entrepreneur Elon Musk, founder and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has explained that Twitter must present evidence that the number of fake accounts on its social network is less than 5% for the purchase offer for 44,000 million dollars (41,992 million euros) go ahead.
In a new message published on the social network this Tuesday, Musk has stressed that, recently, the CEO of Twitter has refused to show evidence that fake accounts are less than 5%. "The deal can't go forward until it does," Musk added.
In relation to the calculation made by some analysis firms that the number of false accounts could reach 20%, Musk has indicated this Monday that the figure could be "much higher". Faced with a message from another user assuring that the number of false accounts could be above 50%, Musk has responded "exactly".
"Twitter should appreciate some kind of external validation if their claims are true," Musk has settled in another message posted on the social network.
