Twitter plans to have shareholder vote by August on sale to Elon Musk

Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) anticipates a shareholder vote on its $44 billion sale to Elon Musk

could come by early August, as it continues to work constructively

to complete the deal with the world's richest person, the social media

company's top executives told employees on Wednesday.

Musk's lawyers warned Twitter on Monday that he might walk away from

the acquisition if the company fails to provide the data he seeks on spam and fake accounts.

Twitter has said it is continuing to share information with Musk.

Part of that data is the "firehose," a set comprising all tweets on the platform analyzed by different parameters,

such as devices of users or profiles of accounts that publish tweets, according to people familiar with the matter.
