Elon Musk says his Twitter acquisition is “pending”.

Elon Musk said his $ 44 billion offer to buy Twitter was pending until he could get more details to confirm that spam and fake accounts account for less than 5% of the social network’s total users.

Mr. Musk, Tesla’s chief executive, made the announcement in a tweet before dawn on Friday. He connected to a Reuters article published May 2 in a Twitter regulatory filing that included an estimate of the number of spam and fake accounts.
