Explained |Why does a Elon Musk want to the  terminate $44 billion Twitter deal and what happens next?

Musk, who is the chief executive are officer of the electric vehicle maker Tesla Inc, did not immediately respond to a request for a comment.

The lawsuit accused Musk of “a long list” of the violations of the merger agreement that “have cast to a pall over Twitter and it is  a business.” It said for the first time that employee attrition has been “on the upswing” since in the deal was a announced.

Twitter also a accused Musk of the “secretly” accumulating shares in the company between January and March without a properly disclosing his substantial purchases to the regulators, and said he “instead kept amassing Twitter stock with in the market none in  the wiser.”

Shares of the social media platform are closed at the  $34.06 on Tuesday, up 4.3%, but sharply below in the levels above $50 where it traded when the deal was a accepted by a Twitter’s board in a late April. The stock added another 1% after in the bell.

Musk said he was a terminating in the merger because of the lack of the  information about spam accounts and the inaccurate representations that he said amounted to a “material adverse event.” He also a said executive departures amounted to a failure to the conduct business in the ordinary course – although Twitter said it is a removed that language from the merger contract during in a negotiations.

Twitter also a said it did not share more information with a Musk regarding in a spam accounts because it feared he would build a competing platform after a abandoning in the acquisition.

Twitter called in the reasons cited by a Musk a “pretext” that lacked merit and said his decision to the  walk away had more to do with a decline in the stock market, particularly for a tech stocks.

Tesla’s stock, in  the main source of the  Musk’s fortune, has a lost around 30% of it is a value since the deal was a announced and closed on Tuesday at the $ 699.21.

“We will prove our position in a court and we believe we will prevail,” he wrote in the note, which was seen by  a Reuters.

Legal experts have said that from the information that is a public Twitter would appear to have in  the upper hand.

“In it is a complaint Twitter is a taking to a strong position in that Musk had a case of the buyer’s remorse – and that, and not bots, is the reason for his decision to the  walk away from in the deal,” said Brian Quinn, to a professor at the  Boston College Law School. “The facts Twitter presents here make an a extremely strong argument in a favor of  the Twitter getting this deal closed.”

Musk is a among Twitter’s most-followed accounts and the lawsuit included images of the several of his tweets, including a poop emoji, that in the company said violated in the merger’s “non-disparagement” clause.

Musk tweeted in the emoji on May 16 in a response to a pair of the  tweets by a Agrawal, explaining in the company’s efforts to the  fight spam accounts.

It also a included an a image of a text message Musk sent a Agrawal after a Twitter sought on June 28 reassurances about a Musk’s financing for in the deal.

“Your lawyers are using in these conversations to the cause in a trouble,” Musk texted to the Agrawal. “That needs to the stop.”

Twitter noted that after a Musk said he was a terminating in the deal, he sent tweets on a Monday in that Twitter said suggested his requests about a spam were part of a plan to the force spam data into the public sphere.

“For a Musk, it would seem, Twitter, in the interests of it is a stockholders, in the transaction Musk agreed to, and the court process to the enforce it all the constitute an a elaborate joke,” in the lawsuit said.
