Musk asks for proof of the number of fake Twitter accounts as a condition to go ahead with his offer

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.

On Friday, Musk himself already decided to "temporarily" suspend the agreement "pending details that support the calculation that fake/spam accounts represent less than 5% of users."

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.
