Sina Technology News On the morning of September 28, Beijing time, according to reports, Twitter said this week that Tesla's chief executive Elon Musk's own data scientists do not think that the number of false accounts on the Twitter platform As Musk said, the estimation of the company is "much higher". At present, the two sides are preparing for the trial of the litigation in October.
Musk is trying to withdraw a transaction for Twitter for $ 44 billion. Musk previously said that this was because the real number of false accounts and junk accounts on the Twitter platform far exceeded 5%of the company's years of years, which misleaded regulatory agencies and investors.

Twitter's lawyer said the submission time of these reports was the day before Musk announced the plan to terminate mergers and acquisitions. In addition, despite the conclusions of Twitter, Twitter still criticizes the research methods of these two data groups.
Twitter urged the court to force Musk to share more information, that is, his own data scientific consultants' research on the false account of the Twitter platform.

Musk's lawyer denied the allegations in this regard.

Twitter's lawyer mentioned that Musk had communicated with well -known investor Marc Andreessen through Signal in April, and the news was automatically deleted after a period of time.
Anderson sent a screenshot of this chat to others through an email, and then the conversation was known by the outside world.
