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.
