Billionaire Elon Musk entered the Twitter’s San Francisco office on Wednesday with a bathroom sink in his hands, with just a few more days to finalise his acquisition of Twitter and avoid a fresh court hearing.
“Entering Twitter HQ – let that sink in!” the Tesla and SpaceX CEO tweeted with a video of his entrance.
Earlier, Musk also changed his bio on Twitter, where he has more than 110 million followers, to “Chief Twit.”
Musk must finalise the purchase of Twitter by Friday at 5 p.m. Eastern Time, or else he will have to consider going to trial once again.
When Musk attempted to terminate their $44 billion merger deal, Twitter sued him on the grounds that it had been negligent in disclosing information concerning spam and bots on its network, which he claimed would have a materially negative impact. This was refuted by Twitter.
After Musk said that he would in fact be prepared to purchase Twitter, a judge in the Delaware Chancery Court set the Friday deadline.
Twitter wants the court to continue to be engaged because it did not trust Musk’s word. The judge ultimately decided to postpone the trial that had been scheduled for last week and gave the parties until the end of this week to reach a settlement; otherwise, she would schedule fresh trial dates for November.
