Twitter’s legal team accuses Mask of violating the secrecy agreement


1 min read

Elon Musk announced on Twitter that Twitter’s legal team had accused him of violating the Confidentiality Agreement (NDA), revealing that the sample size for checking automated social media platform users was 100.

“Twitter’s legal team has just called to complain that I violated their NDA, revealing that the sample check sample size is 100!” Musk, the world’s richest man and head of Tesla and SpaceX, tweeted.

As early as Friday, Musk announced on Twitter that his $ 44 billion cash contract to buy Twitter was temporarily on hold while he waited for information on whether fake profiles really represented less than five percent of users on that social network.

He said his team would test a “random sample of 100 users” on Twitter to identify bots. His answer to that question sparked accusations from Twitter’s legal team.


I chose 100 users as the sample number because that’s what Twitter uses to calculate <5% fakes / spam / duplicates, Mask responded to a Twitter user’s request to work out a bot account filtering process.

Musk tweeted in the early hours of Sunday morning that he had not yet seen any analysis showing that Twitter had less than five percent fake user accounts.

He later said that there is a chance that it could be over 90 percent of daily active users.
