Elon Musk uses memes to signal he planned to take Twitter to court all along

Elon Musk's Twitter buy is about to hit the court as the social media giant is suing him in order to force the sale the Space X CEO has reportedly backed away from. But Musk, who only backed away from the sale because he couldn't get an accurate count from Twitter as to how many of their users were bots, will likely now gain access to that data in court.

Musk shared a meme to that effect on, where else, Twitter. "They said I couldn't buy Twitter," the first panel reads. "Then they wouldn't disclose bot into. Now they want to force me to buy Twitter in court. Now they have to disclose bot info in court." The text is accompanied by images of Elon laughing.

The drama began when Musk, a self-described free speech absolutist, issued public frustration about the platform's high profile bannings and censorship, most notably after satire site The Babylon Bee was suspended from Twitter for saying that Assistant Health and Human Services secretary, biological male Dr. Rachel Levine, is a man. Levine now identifies as transgender after having been married and fathered children while living as a male.
