Elon Musk tweeted Twitter’s legal team accused him of violating a nondisclosure agreement by revealing that the sample size for the social media platform’s checks on automated users was 100.

“Twitter legal just called to complain that I violated their NDA by revealing the bot check sample size is 100!,” tweeted Musk, CEO of electric car maker Tesla Inc.

Musk earlier said that his $44-billion cash deal for Twitter Inc was “temporarily on hold” while he waits for the social media company to provide data on the proportion of its fake accounts.

He said his team would test “a random sample of 100 followers” on Twitter to identify the bots. His response to a question prompted Twitter’s accusation.

When a user asked Musk to “elaborate on the process of filtering bot accounts,” he replied, “I picked 100 as the sample size number because that is what Twitter uses to calculate <5% fake/spam/duplicate.”
