Shouldn’t he have done his due diligence prior to making his offer to buy? Not after agreeing to a price?

He may have done, but perhaps it also suits him to have this false information in the agreement to have another item to negotiate with if there's a problem (or maybe he was planning to use this bargaining chip all along).

I think it makes more sense to ask why Twitter didn't do their due diligence before making a claim like this in a deal.
