Texas’s Attorney General is stepping in to defend newly minted Texan Elon ‘horse’ Musk.
Techcrunch Paxton just announced that his office is investigating how Twitter may be “misleading Texans” about the number of automated bots on its platform.
Echoing Elon Musk, Texas AG is investigating Twitter over bots – TechCrunch


Ironically those automated bots are one of the reasons Trump loves twitter so much, now the man that would unban Trump is coming for those bots! It seems only one will remain standing after this, I don’t know which I want more, Musk to defeat Twitter or Twitter to defeat Musk.

It sounds like ‘too many bots’ isn’t a valid legal reason to skip out on the deal but ‘they refused to give me important information’ might just be. So twitter is seemingly calling his bluff, giving him access to a ‘firehose’ of data on daily activities.

Since Musk’s take over bid Tesla stocks have lost 1/3rd of their value and it’s looking like twitter will make $1B in Musk’s failed attempt to distract from his other constant failing.

:lol:

They’re a 70+ year old law firm with connections to Russian oligarchs including Putin.

Wikipedia One of company's actions on Yanukovych's [Russian aligned president of Ukraine from 2010-2014] behalf was to produce a report justifying Yanukovych's imprisonment of former prime minister Yulia V. Tymoshenko (who was pro-European) and denying that the action had been a political prosecution, although many Western countries characterized it as such.

…Tymoshenko made plans to sue Skadden, and in May 2020 it was revealed that Skadden had paid at least $11 million to settle the case before a lawsuit could be filed.

In 2019, Skadden agreed to pay a $4.6 million settlement to the Department of Justice over the firm's failure to register as a foreign agent under the Foreign Agent Registrations Act.


(Unrelated, I have just now learned that lower case lol and capitalized LOL are two different smilies. :lol: :LOL:)

A bit expected, it seems like they may have been fired by Gwynne Shotwell, the actual brain behind SpaceX if there was a single one, who seems to have a specific arrangement with Musk that he can shoot his mouth off however he wants so long as her and her real engineers are never dragged into the mess. Part of working at SpaceX is staring mutely as the eccentric CEO rides by on his unicycle and hope you aren’t offered a horse.
