Twitter Trial Breakdown

It’s all happening: Elon Musk filed to terminate his deal to buy Twitter, Twitter sued him for specific performance, and now the trials begin. Today, not a trial actually but a hearing to see whether the trial should take place on Twitter’s requested timeline, in September, or Musk’s requested timeline, in February.

Still, the two sides are starting to show their hands. While much of this ‘negotiating’ has been done in public, the filings were still revelatory. So, as we approach the endgame of the endgame, Akram's Razor and Daniel talk about what we learned, what happens next, and who has a stronger hand; though I don’t think you’ll be surprised by our conclusions if you’ve listened to us before.
