Twitter will share its internal data with Musk to clear the purchase agreement

Twitter will grant Elon Musk’s request to provide internal dataas part of a showdown in which the tycoon’s disputed US$44 billion offer to buy the platform is at stake, US media reported Wednesday.

The news comes just days after the Tesla CEO threatened to pull out of the deal to buy Twitter, accusing the social network of failing in its attempt to provide data on false accounts.

The newspapers The Washington Post and The New York Times, and the Axios website cited anonymous sources close to the negotiations according to which the board of Twitter decided to give Musk full access to his "hose" internal data with the hundreds of millions of tweets that are published daily on the platform.

"This would end the biggest showdown between Musk and the board on this crucial issue that has put the deal on hold."Wedbush analyst Dan Ives wrote in a tweet.

Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal has said that less than 5% of active Twitter accounts are bots (robots), without this analysis being able to replicate externally due to data protection policy.

Nail two dozen companies already pay to access Twitter’s massive trove of internal datawhich includes the record of tweets and information about accounts and devices from which the messages are sent, the Post said.

Twitter declined to comment on the information, but has defended its spirit of response to Musk’s suggestions, promising to complete the deal on the original terms.

The unpredictable Musk agreed to buy Twitter for $44 billion in late April.

ANDTwitter’s chief legal officer has told employees that a special shareholder vote to approve the acquisition could come in late July or early August, according to Bloomberg.

Musk began making considerable noise around the fake accounts in mid-May, when he said he would withdraw from the transaction if his concerns were not addressed.

Some analysts have seen Musk’s questioning of Twitter as a means of ending the buying process or as a method of putting pressure on Twitter to lower the price.

Twitter shares ended slightly above $40 on Wednesday, considerably lower than the $54.20 Musk agreed to pay when he signed the purchase agreement.
