Their searing record of occasions offers an inside perspective on how a far-fetched corporate dalliance between a tweet-from-the-hip multibillionaire and the stage he likely invests a lot of energy in slipped into horrible sharpness. The main passage of their claim states: “Having mounted a public scene to place Twitter in play, and having proposed and afterward marked a merchant well disposed consolidation understanding, Musk clearly trusts that he – not at all like each and every other party subject to Delaware contract regulation – is allowed to alter his perspective, rubbish the organization, disturb its tasks, obliterate investor worth, and leave.”
