Twitter bots or Tesla share price ?
Apparently Elon Musk is not happy about the number of false accounts on Twitter and especially those run by automated computer programmes or bots.
There is a chance that he will pull out of his deal to buy Twitter if they are not more forthcoming with answers to his due diligence questions on such false accounts.
Is this a clever way of outing the issues at Twitter or a ruse to pull out of the deal because the Tesla share price has tanked in the last few months?
Either way it illustrates the importance of M&A due diligence preparation on both buy and sell side and equally the need to attend to any IP risks that may lurk within the business.
