reportedly plans to share a full data stream with Tesla Inc.
chief Elon Musk as it looks to secure a closing of their pending merger arrangement, The Washington Post said Wednesday. The data stream includes information all on tweets posted daily and the accounts that send them, and Twitter already provides this sort of data to certain companies that pay for access, according to the report. Musk has agreed to purchase Twitter for $44 billion, but more recently he and his legal representatives have signaled that he could “terminate” the deal given his concerns that Twitter has not been accurate in its disclosures on the prevalence of bot activity on its platform. Twitter said in a Monday statement that the company “has and will continue to cooperatively share information with Mr. Musk to consummate the transaction in accordance with the terms of the merger agreement.” The company didn’t respond to MarketWatch’s request for comment on the Washington Post report. Twitter shares are up 0.9% in Wednesday afternoon trading.
