Elon Musk claims to have exposed a deception by Twitter’s ex-leadership team.
Yoel Roth, the director of Safety and Integrity at the business, is allegedly the source of what Musk presented as internal Twitter conversations.
The Tesla mega-billionaire uses the conversation as evidence that Twitter’s previous executives and the company’s lawyers withheld information from the court when it was discussing Musk’s attempt to have his acquisition of Twitter voided in a Sunday Twitter post.

According to Bloomberg, Musk named the corporate law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz that defended the social media corporation in court battles with the South African-born businessman.
In the chats, Roth says that he may accuse “Amir,” a person who appears to be a Twitter employee, of falsifying his “Objectives and Key Results,” or “OKRs,” a metric that technology businesses like Twitter use to describe objectives and evaluate results.
Roth even makes the observation that such falsification would be comparable to the actions Musk claimed Twitter’s leadership were in charge of.
Roth commented, “Literally doing what Elon is accusing us of doing.”
Musk eventually closed the agreement to acquire Twitter as a private firm, but he asserted that management at Twitter overstated the number of bots that were active on the network, increasing the company’s valuation.
For months, Musk engaged in legal battle with the previous board of Twitter, at one point attempting to back out of his purchase of the business.

He ultimately ended up coming to terms with Twitter’s board to complete the deal.
Musk fired three of the company’s executives on Friday, within hours of finalizing his deal to buy Twitter, beginning a new era for a company blighted with a reputation for censorship and political discrimination.
Chief Executive Officer Parag Agrawal was terminated, along with Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal and legal affairs chief Vijaya Gadde, according to Reuters. CONTINUE READING…
