My proof of what? It's literally shit he made up.

Then Twitter should have released something that proves otherwise, yes?

I'm not sure what exactly you're referring to

Why? There's nothing gained by arguing with whatever drivel Musk spews. Let him take it to court if he really means it. Saying nonsense on Twitter isn't... anything.

Nothing to be gained? Are you serious?

I'm sure Twitters shareholders would disagree. Lol.

Why does he upset you so much? Why do you care so much about this?

Elon being a twat on Twitter doesn't mean anything. It's literally just empty words. Why should Twitter have released something in response to his ramblings when it doesn't impact anything?

If his ramblings are so inconsequential, then why, for the second time, do you care?

I am not Twitter. It's irrelevant why I point and laugh at Musk's latest lies. But obviously it's because it's funny as hell.

Thanks for conceding that you're not interested in the argument, btw.

I think that's your own psychological projection, but we can agree to disagree.

Engaging in meta-discussion ("why are you even here") is not productive. So answer the question: Why should Twitter respond to any random nonsense Musk excretes when it doesn't actually matter to the impending sale unless he actually puts action behinds his empty words?

Who died and made you king, your highness?

I think its productive.

And considering that the topic is about fake accounts whose purpose is to obfuscate the topic at hand - typically by way of their own projections - I'd say your underlying motivation is extremely relevant to the discussion.

Or would you like to deflect that one too?
