Elon Musk and Twitter's ongoing saga appears to be getting more complicated as the tale unfolds. Former CEO Jack Dorsey has now been drawn into the mix after appearing out of the equation.
According to Bloomberg, Musk now demands data from his long-time friend in response to the most recent stages of an acquisition gone wrong. Musk has subpoenaed Dorsey as part of his defense against Twitter's claim for $44 billion to fulfill his previously announced plan to buy the company.
Last year, Dorsey formally retired as Twitter CEO, but he has been a champion for Musk's vision and the company's purchase.
The news that a subpoena has been issued comes as the billionaire searches for documents and data showing how much of the social media company's customer base is made up of spam and robot accounts.
The summons against Dorsey, which stems from Musk and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey's good relationship, is noteworthy because it attempts to obtain information on all parties. Musk has subpoenaed Dorsey's former product chief Kayvon Beykpour and its former head of revenue Bruce Falck.
It's too early to tell what will come of this in court.
