According to rumors, Twitter, a social media website, is considering suing Tesla CEO Elon Musk as soon as this week. On July 8, Musk announced his intention to back out of the $44 billion acquisition of Twitter.

Bloomberg reported on July 10th that the corporation has retained the corporate law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz and intends to take the case before the Delaware Court of Chancery, a non-jury trial court in the state of Delaware that handles matters relating to corporate law.

Earlier, the legal team that represents Tesla’s CEO sent a letter to Twitter claiming that several terms of the original agreement had been broken and that it appeared Twitter had made false and misleading promises when Musk agreed to buy the company on April 25. The letter was delivered in response to Twitter’s denial of the accusations.

According to Musk, one of his main goals is to get rid of all spam and con artist bot accounts from Twitter.
