Twitterati roast Elon Musk for ‘abandoning’ Twitter deal

On Friday, business tycoon Elon Musk announced he would not go ahead with the $44 billion deal to buy Twitter after the microblogging site refused to provide him with actionable and concrete data on fake accounts or bots. In response, Twitter said it would sue Musk if he didn’t fulfill the deal.

These latest developments are one of the many twists seen in the very public saga of Musk’s attempt to buy Twitter.

In early April, Musk became the social media platform’s largest single shareholder after acquiring its 9.2 percent stake. On April 25, 2022, it was announced that Musk would acquire ownership of Twitter in a $44 billion deal.

Ever since news of Musk’s resignation from the Twitter deal hit the headlines, many netizens have taken to Twitter and slammed the Tesla CEO for breaking his word.

Many netizens accused Musk of whose tweets often raise eyebrows, seeking attention. Echoing that sentiment, one Twitter user wrote: “I wonder what Elon Musk won’t buy next to get attention?πŸ€””

Another Twitter user wrote: “BREAKING NEWS: Instead of being sued by Twitter, Elon Musk has decided to leave Earth, colonize Mars and start his new social media empire there. It will be called martyr.”
