Elon Musk Summons Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey
Elon Musk has subpoenaed Twitter cofounder and former
CEO Jack Dorsey. The subpoena, which was revealed in a
Delaware Chancery Court filing on Monday, focuses on the
platform's alleged problem with spam bots, a hallmark of the legal battle
Musk faces against Twitter. The trial is scheduled to begin in October.
The subpoena states that Dorsey will be asked to provide information about
"the impact or effect of fake or spam accounts on Twitter's business
and operations" - as well as metrics the company uses to measure spam bots.
Dorsey's attorney accepted the subpoena on Friday and agreed to respond within 14 days, according
to emails included in court documents. Musk has repeatedly accused Twitter of
misrepresenting the number of spam accounts on its site and argued that he should be allowed to withdraw from the settlement due.
Dorsey co-founded Twitter in 2006 and served as CEO until November 2021. The
eccentric bearded founder backed Musk when Twitter accepted his purchase agreement in April this year.
