Twitter Calls Musk’s Bots Complaints ‘Irrelevant Sideshow’

Technology

Twitter Inc. dismissed Elon Musk’s complaints that he doesn’t have enough information about spam and robot accounts an “irrelevant sideshow” and urged a judge to hold a trial as soon as possible over his cancellation of a $44 billion buyout of the company.

“The earliest possible trial date is imperative,” Twitter’s attorneys said in the nine-page filing Monday, responding to Musk’s request for a delay. “This very public dispute harms Twitter with each passing day.”
