‘Chuckmate’: Elon Musk, Twitter Hire Top Law Firms and Brace for Legal Showdown Over Big Tech Site

Twitter is prepared to act legally to force Elon Musk to buy the website, but Musk claims Twitter won’t be honest about its bot count

Twitter has hired a noteworthy corporate law firm in a bid to legally force Tesla and Space X CEO Elon Musk to buy the embattled big tech site after the African American billionaire said the website refused to provide key data about the site’s number of bot users.

Musk publicly expressed his intention to walk away from the $44 billion Twitter deal last week following a month of virtual silence on the topic. Previously, Musk had indicated he believed Twitter was lying about the number of fake users on the site, and requested the big tech website provide internal data to prove only 5% of the users are inauthentic.

After eventually receiving some of that data, Musk called off the deal.

Now, Twitter has hired Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, according to The Verge, and intends to force the deal through. Previously, both Musk and Twitter signed an agreement stating that either side would pay a $1 billion fee for backing out of the deal.

The founding member of that law firm, according to The Verge, is Martin Lipton. Lipton is known in legal circles for inventing the “poison pill” response Twitter initially used in a bid to keep Musk from buying the company.

Musk, meanwhile, is rumored to have hired his own famous lawyers.

He has reportedly retained Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, which is the firm responsible for defending Samsung against Apple’s patent lawsuit “claiming the Galaxy devices were merely a copycat of the iPhone.”

The same law firm also represented Musk and beat controversial lawyer Lin Wood, who represented the man Musk referred to as a “pedo guy” in a defamation lawsuit against the African American billionaire.

Musk seemed to suggest that being sued by Twitter was part of his strategy.  In an otherwise unexplained tweet, Musk uploaded a photo of Chuck Norris playing chess, and later added “Chuckmate.”

The Tesla and Space X CEO first expressed his interest in buying Twitter after the big tech website censored Christian satire website Babylon Bee for its comedy article awarding transgender Admiral Rachel Levine its “Man of the Year” award. Multiple other conservatives were later punished for making similar jokes.

When actively pursuing the deal to buy Twitter, Musk maintained that he would govern it as a “free speech absolutist,” and refuse to ban users based on political affiliation.

    (Attention, the ensuing reply was prepared in the monospace Consolas Font [at 8-point BOLD], at a max screen width of 166 characters. To print, use “legal landscape”! Unfortunately, many websites do not have a “collapse widget” whereby lengthy replies can be efficiently and effectively “tucked away” to reduce “comment clutter”, nor a Blog Comment Host widget that/ which will afford MY CHOICE of font/ font size, and an ability to display a comment script utilizing the full screen width! A pitty!)

    Fauxial Media Members, we need a “Federal INFORMATION Commission” (FIC) to transcend the Biden-Harris White House Task Force to Address Online Harassment and Abuse… and rather, than give the Constitutional breaching and UDHR breaching Federal COMMUNICATIONS Commission/ FCC (PROPERLY, SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING– IN PART– CORPORATE SOCIAL MEDIA COMPLIANCE WITH COMMUNICATIONS INFRASTRUCTURAL TECHNI̲C̲ PREQUALIFICATIONS… AND NOT FOR THE “INFORMATION JACKING” OF THE INFORMATION CONTENT OF AMERICANS’ FREE SPEECH!) any further opportunity to violate it’s̲ CONSTITUTIONALLY PRESCRIBED MANDATE! PROPERLY GOVERNING Free Speech… under the Life and Security of the Person Sections of the Constitution and the UDHR!… should be under the scope of a Federal INFORMATION Commission/ FIC (equipped, with Behavioural Sciences skill sets… e.g., INTRApersonal and INTERpersonal Intelligence [i.e., the “3 I{s}”], and “Forensic Sociocybernetics”… but, etc.!)! Heck, Federal, State and Local Police Agencies/ Services use such skill sets to profile the “bad guy”… and so, SURELY, an “FIC” can be equipped with the skill sets necessary to address Human Information Rights under HUMAN ICT RIGHTS (the latter, including “Human Communications Rights”/ “Human Duocarrier Rights”… and ICT, an amalgam of Human Digital Rights and Human Analog[l] Rights… and ALL under HUMAN RIGHTS!)! In fact, the FCC should be equipped to handle Human Communications Rights (Digital and Analog[l]… and e.g., Access and Privacy issues)!… AND NOT THE PERSONAL INFORMATION CONTENT BEING COMMUNICATED/ CARRIED! Access and Privacy on one’s PC or cellphone– for example!– are CARRIER ISSUES… NOT “IDIOGEMÓDEDO CONTENT (‘personal full data/ [information] content’)” ISSUES (i.e., though the “IDIOGEMÓDEDO CONTENT” may give rise to an FIC decision to effect an FCC removal of a Carrier Software Block on, or the imposition of a Carrier Software Block on a Communications device/ Carrier device [e.g., a cellphone or a PC], “IDIOGEMÓDEDO CONTENT” and “CARRIER GEMÓDEDO CONTENT” are two distinct information concerns; and hence, the expression, INFORMATION & COMMUNICATION[S] TECHNES!)! In other words, “IDIOGEMÓDEDO CONTENT” and “CARRIER GEMÓDEDO CONTENT (best expressed as, ‘DICARRIER GEMÓDEDO CONTENT’… Digital and/ or Analog[l] Dicarrier Content)” are MUTUALLY EXCLUSIVE GEMÓDEDO/ INFORMATION CONCERNS OF ICT! And, unfortunately, due to the failure to separate the two distinct information concerns of IDIOGEMÓDEDO CONTENT and DICARRIER GEMÓDEDO CONTENT… YEA, to separate ICT into it’s̲ two main components!… an FIC was missed, and only a part of our ICT concerns have been met!
    .
    On one side of the ledger, the FCC should be addressing “HUMAN DICARRIER-GEMÓDEDO RIGHTS”/ “Human Communications-Information Rights” (i.e., that/ which is specific to ANY ASPECT of the RIGHTFUL HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE CARRIAGE of webizens’ “IDIOGEMÓDEDO CONTENT”), and on the other side of the ledger an FIC should be addressing “HUMAN IDIOGEMÓDEDO RIGHTS”/ “Human Personal-information Rights” (i.e., that/ which is specific to ANY ASPECT of the RIGHTFUL FREE SPEECH AND FREE ACCESS of and to webizens’ “IDIOGEMÓDEDO CONTENT”)! And all of which, must be based upon a Constitutional/ UDHR balance of Life, Security of the Person and Equal Protections and Equal Benefits!
    .
    And once again, ICT would be best phrased as, GEMÓDEDO (for “full data”… data, the plural of datum) & DICARRIER (DUOCARRIER… i.e., Digital and Analog[l]) TECHNES/ GDT… to: a) express the dual aspect of the GEMÓDEDO being managed; b) express the dual aspect of the means whereby GEMÓDEDO is sent and received; and c) express the fact that there are two aspects of GEMÓDEDO and CARRIER “TECHNES (NOT ‘technologies’, or ‘studies of technes’!)” managed, sent and received on behalf of all webizens!
    .
    See, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data… en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Information… and en.wiktionary.org/wiki/information#English
    .
    See, biblehub.com/greek/1073.htm (γέμω/ gemó, for “to be full”/ “filled”… GEMÓDEDO, not to be confused with the oft abused [and less than Greek!] use, “metadata”… or the correct Greek term, “metadedo”… see, μετά/ meta, for “after with”/ “change afterward” [see, bit.ly/3JQXjuw] and δεδομένα/ dedoména and δεδο/ dedo, for data).

    Attention!… an urgent note regarding Christine Lagarde’s and Turkey’s recent rejection of Bitcoin!… and, if you want to put a big dent in cryptocurrency action, I would suggest confronting Elon Musk in the manner hereinafter outlined!…
    .
    bit*ly/2PhTloD
    .
    bit*ly/3yCPAhr
    .
    bit*ly/31rXYyN (Under “Economic Forcast” > “Global economy”, see, “2018”… and, “Political Views”)
    .
    bit*ly/2PxJbjs
    .
    Simply put… if “cryptocurrencies” have been used– and are being used!– to “launder” criminal transactions (shielded by the constant hype that these currencies are all about… and nothing more than about!… “safe monetary encryption”!), then we run the risk of empowering some of the most ruthless individuals on our planet, and covering up some of the most brutal for-profit crimes committed (e.g., the love of for-profit broadcast child lust murder… i.e., Kerdotelepaedolagnophoneuophilia!)! And, if you are inclined to view our world as inherently good… and because, you and your’s have lived hermetically sealed lives for most of your lives!… then your myopic complacency could place your world at the mercy of SOULLESS DESPOTS– let alone, ENDANGER YOUR OWN!
    .
    Encypting digital transactions is one thing… but, allowing a human-sized spider to snuggle up to you under the sheets in an “unlit digital room”, is to be suddenly, and mercilessly stung, and then devoured as prey! But, worse!… is awakening to a hell more horrific than your fatal sting and mere death!… YOUR PUNISHMENT BY GOD!
    .
    Our “HUMAN JOURNALISTIC OBLIGATION” is to explore the REAL DANGERS behind the digital laundering of “digital currency transactions” used in exchange for products and/ or services!… and not merely about the quaint exploration of the SCIENCE BEHIND DIGITAL ENCRYPTION, AND THE IMPACT OF CRYPTOMINING! Indeed, EVEN IF cryptocurrencies are 100% “encryption spyproof” and environmentally sustainable, such doesn’t take away the THREAT presented by way of those for whom such encryption is but a means to operate criminally– WITH DIGITAL IMPUNITY!
    .

    .
    Ummmm… I wonder what Elon Musk PUBLICLY THINKS… hint, hint!… about the subject of Kerdotelepaedolagnophoneuophilia!… or just plain Telepaedolagnophoneuophilia or Paedolagnophoneuophilia! After all, he’s PUBLICLY EXPRESSED his disdain for, “pedos”… and we might conclude from that that he’s a critic of Child Sex Trafficking and Human Trafficking, in general!
    .
    In the light of the abovenoted “court-sanctioned excusing” of his PUBLIC ACCUSATION of a would-be rescuer as a pedophile, his recent receipt of a first place monetary accolade AND of his public announcement of his support for Bitcoin, this is the perfect time to secure GOOD GUY SUPPORT for a battle against what may be– arguably!– THE MOST HORRENDOUS CRIME COMMITTED BY ANY HUMAN BEING (AND ECLIPSING THAT, OF MERE MURDER!)!
    .
    What do you BOLDLY SAY, webizens?… should someone BOLDLY ASK this “man of monetary notoriety” (academi̲c̲l̲y̲!… and, impassionately/ matter-of-factly!) what he thinks of these evils– and yea, what his “scientific solutions” are to ending this global scourge? And then, once having received his caring response (if, you do!), ask him about the problem of LAUNDERING COMMERCIAL CHILD SEX TRANSACTIONS by way of cryptocurrencies!… and, whether his support for Bitcoin, is in CONTRAST to his assertion that a would-be rescuer of children was a pedophile, while– all the while– he (Elon Musk) has recently “granted” support for one of the most efficient and effective tools for LAUNDERING COMMERCIAL CHILD SEX TRANSACTIONS (but– potentially!– Paedolagnophoneuophilia!)!
    .
    In Wiktionary, under, “cryptomining”, we find the following…
    .
    Etymology
    .
    crypto- +‎ mining
    .
    Noun
    .
    cryptomining (uncountable)
    .
    The process of reverse-engineering the encryption used by cryptocurrency in order to generate cryptocurrency.
    .
    Simply… it’s bad enough to find that due to the power of this encryption method to keep criminals safe from exposing their sale of illicit products and/ or services to criminal dealing in such illicit products and/ or services (by effecting “cryptocircumlocutory obfuscation”/ “slight-of-hand” in the exchange of an illicit sale of an illicit product and/ or service for a “cryptoverivala” that/ which can– in turn– be exchanged for “sanctionable tangible assets (i.e., ‘laundered assets’)”… we now have the compounded damnable evil of energy-consuming Net thieves attempting to steal “Cryptoverivala Seals” in order to generate their own “Crypto La Cosa Nostra Effect”, that– in turn– could be used to secure sanctionable tangible assets! And frankly, the recent Reports of the further problem of an enormous carbon footprint being left behind by wannabe and would-be “crypto thieves” of “crypto enablers” of “cryptosociopsychopaths”, is but incidental to the main concern!… and that being, the demonic footprint being left behind on the souls of the most vulnerable!… the “particulates” of which, are far more disabling than mere cancer-causing molecules (see, Mark 7: 15 and Matthew 15: 11, Biblehub)!
    .
    BTW, Kerdotelepaedolagnophoneuophilia is not the only crime in need of “cryptocurrency laundering”!… and Elon Musk is not the only “high roller” who’s expressed his support for this more than dubious, “innovation”! (See, b̲i̲t̲.̲l̲y̲/̲3̲c̲x̲0̲X̲M̲K̲… and, b̲i̲t̲.̲l̲y̲/̲3̲f̲o̲5̲f̲Y̲S̲)

      Twitter is not worth $30 per share. At least Musk has exposed them for the scam artists they ar.
