“Twitter will not take yes for an answer,” said lawyers for Elon Musk in a court motion. They were referring to the fact that despite Musk reversing course and agreeing to buy Twitter for the original deal price of $44 billion, Twitter has not ended legal proceedings for a trial, set to start October 17, without guarantees the deal will close. While Musk’s team says “debt financing parties are working cooperatively to fund the close,” Twitter is (understandably, no?) reluctant to move forward without assurances that Musk won’t walk again.
