Elon Musk Says Twitter Deal Is ‘On Hold’ WHUR Contributor May 13, 2022 at 11:30 am in LIFESTYLE Tweet Elon Musk says his deal to buy Twitter for $44 billion is ‘on hold’ – for now, at least. On Friday, Musk tweeted that he wanted “more details” on a report that fake accounts or bots make up less than 5% of active Twitter users. Musk has previously said that getting rid of bots and spam would be a top priority once he takes over. Musk’s announcement sent Twitter’s stock price tumbling 20% early Friday morning. Is it possible that Musk has ‘buyer’s remorse’ and is looking for a way to back out of the deal? Or do you think Twitter’s bot problem is worse than the report indicates?
