Twitter Sues Elon Musk to Enforce  Billion Buyout Deal — Insists Breach Allegations Lack Merit

Twitter Inc. has filed a lawsuit against Elon Musk to force the Tesla CEO to go through with the agreement to buy the social medial platform for $44 billion. Twitter alleges that Musk has breached the agreement repeatedly since he signed the deal with the company.

Twitter v. Elon Musk: Lawsuit Battle Begins

Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR) has filed a lawsuit against Tesla and Spacex CEO Elon Musk for backing out of the deal to buy the social media platform. The lawsuit, filed in the Delaware Court of Chancery, names Musk and his companies — X Holdings I and X Holdings II — as defendants.

Twitter alleges:

Musk refuses to honor his obligations to Twitter and its stockholders because the deal he signed no longer serves his personal interests.

The lawsuit explains that after Musk signed the agreement with Twitter, the market fell and the value of his stake in Tesla, and therefore his personal wealth, dropped by more than $100 billion since its November 2021 peak.

The social media giant further claims that “Since signing the merger agreement, Musk has repeatedly disparaged Twitter and the deal, creating business risk for Twitter and downward pressure on its share price,” stressing that the Tesla CEO’s “exit strategy is a model of hypocrisy” and “a model of bad faith.”

Regarding Musk’s claims that Twitter is in material breach of the agreement, as Bitcoin.com News previously reported, the social media company insisted that “These claims are pretexts and lack any merit.” Twitter elaborated:

Musk, by contrast, has been acting against this deal since the market started turning, and has breached the merger agreement repeatedly in the process.

Twitter added:

Because of [the] defendants’ breaches and the uncertainty they have generated, Twitter faces irreparable harm.

The lawsuit states: “Musk and his entities should be enjoined from further breaches, ordered to comply with their obligations to work toward satisfying the few closing conditions, and ordered to close upon satisfaction of those conditions.”

The social media giant is seeking relief to the extent permitted under the merger agreement and an order forcing Musk to go through with the buyout deal.

A Step-by-Step Guide on How to Access Your ETHW Tokens if You Held ETH Before The Merge

With the new Ethereumpow (ETHW) network launch, ethereum holders are eligible to receive a single ETHW for every ether they own. The following is a simple guide that shows ethereum holders how to access their ETHW tokens using a wallet like Metamask.

Accessing the ETHW Network via Metamask’s Network Settings

16 days ago, Ethereum transitioned from a proof-of-work (PoW) blockchain to a proof-of-stake (PoS) network, and ethereum miners chose to mine a few different coins like ethereum classic and ravencoin. Some miners transitioned over to the new Ethereumpow (ETHW) network, and the blockchain has been live for more than two weeks since it launched. At the time of writing, there’s 52.27 terahash per second (TH/s) of hashrate dedicated to the ETHW network.

Moreover, the ETHW token has been trading for prices between $10.96 to $12.16 per unit during the last 24 hours. The USD value of ETHW is up 20.6% during the last two weeks, and seven-day statistics indicate the token is up 49.1%. However, during the past 24 hours on October 1, 2022, ETHW has lost roughly 7% against the U.S. dollar. Because ETH owners are eligible for ETHW at a 1:1 rate, after the ETHW network went live, ether holders have been gaining access to their coins.

The following post is a simple way to access ETHW using a Metamask wallet by simply updating the network. ETH owners can also leverage different methods like importing their seeds into Metamask or a wallet that supports the ETHW network. Some wallets like Crypto.com’s defi wallet has a toggle switch that checks for balances, and if you held ETH on Crypto.com’s defi wallet, simply check for balances and the ETHW token can be added.

To leverage the Metamask route, it’s assumed you already have ETH in a Metamask wallet throughout the rest of this guide, but if you don’t, it’s also possible to import your ETH wallet into the Metamask platform and access the funds from there.

Assuming you already have a Metamask wallet that held ethereum (ETH) before The Merge or before September 15, the next step is accessing Metamask’s settings section in the wallet. In order to access the settings simply click the account icon and press “settings.”

In Metamask’s “settings” section, on the left side of the screen another section called “network” will be visible, and there’s an icon of a plug right beside it. Press “network,” and the section will take you to an area that shows all the networks your wallet is connected to, and from here simply press “add network.” After pressing the “add network” button, Metamask will warn you about malicious networks as the platform states:

A malicious network provider can lie about the state of the blockchain and record your network activity. Only add custom networks you trust.

Below the warning are the fields of entry that are needed to access the ETHW network. There are five fields to fill out, which include: “Network Name,” “New RPC URL,” “Chain ID,” “Currency Symbol,” and the “Block Explorer URL.” In order to connect to the ETHW chain simply leverage the RPC data written below.

  • Network Name- ETHW-mainnet
  • New RPC URL- https://mainnet.ethereumpow.org
  • Chain ID- 10001
  • Currency Symbol- ETHW
  • Block Explorer URL- https://mainnet.ethwscan.com

After filling in all the fields, simply press “save” and connect to the ETHW network. When the wallet is connected to the network, it should now display a balance of ETHW, depending on how much ether was originally in the wallet. From here, the ETHW balance can be saved, transferred to a different wallet or address, or sent to an exchange to be sold.

If you plan to sell the new tokens, make sure the trading platform supports the ETHW chain. In addition to accessing the ETHW network via Metamask, the hardware wallet company Ledger has published a blog post that describes how ETH owners can obtain their Ledger ETHW account via Metamask.
