Elon Musk says he’s putting his proposed purchase of Twitter “temporarily on hold” as he tries to get more information about how many accounts on the platform are fake. The news raises huge questions about the future of the business. He said he was waiting for information “supporting [the] calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users”. The BBC reports though that Musk added later that he was “still committed to [the] acquisition”. However, analysts speculated he could be seeking to renegotiate the price or even walk away from the takeover. Musk’s tweets sent Twitter’s share price plunging 10% in morning trade in New York.
