Elon Musk and his lawyers are pressuring Twitter to provide the names of the employees directly responsible
for inspecting the platform's customer base for spam and robo accounts. According to Bloomberg, the
billionaire sent a letter to Delaware Chancery Court Judge Kathaleen McCormick, which was filed under seal.
According to the publication, "people privy to the allegations" claim that Musk's team is alleging that Twitter is purposely hiding
these potential key witnesses in the case in which the microblog service is trying to force the businessman to comply with the $44 billion merger agreement that he is trying to evade.
So in that petition, the billionaire's defense is specifically asking the magistrate to compel Twitter "to produce
discovery from specific custodians," i.e., the names of employees, so that lawyers can question them directly.
The motion produced by Musk's legal team is yet another attempt to dispute Twitter's claim
that less than 5% of its monetizable daily active users (mDAU) are spam or fake. Twitter says tha
t this is just a baseless excuse and that the billionaire has not presented "even a shred of evidence to support the thesis.
