Elon Musk knocks down the price He does not want

Elon Musk’s purchase of the social network Twitter is getting more and more interesting. The other day, the billionaire said that the number of fake and spam accounts on Twitter can exceed 90% of the number of daily active users, but in general he leans towards 20%.

Elon Musk knocks down the price?  He does not want to complete the deal to buy Twitter without an audit, which is impossible

Musk has already said he wants to audit, so he put the deal on hold for now. However, there appear to be problems with the audit procedure.

Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal wrote that it is unlikely that an external audit could be carried out.

Unfortunately, we do not believe that this particular assessment can be done externally, given the urgent need to use both public and private information (which we cannot share). Outwardly, it is even impossible to know which accounts are counted as daily active.

Agrawal also said that Twitter is actively fighting spam accounts, blocking more than half a million accounts daily. He reiterated that the company has been counting such accounts for many years, and the rate has always been less than 5%.

Musk said that the CEO of Twitter publicly refused to provide evidence of such indicators, which is why the deal cannot move towards completion.

It is not yet clear how this story will end, but it is likely that all this will allow Musk to buy Twitter for significantly less than the original $ 44 billion. Perhaps from the very beginning, Musk had such a tactic, and now he adheres to it.

The Aya Neo 2 console with Ryzen 7 6800U was unveiled yesterday, and now GPD has boasted that it has already acquired a batch of the same APUs, so GPD Win Max 2 test models based on this platform should be ready by June. Judging by the entry, the company did not expect that it would be able to get the processors so quickly.

GPD Win Max 2 was introduced back in March, but with a Core i7-1280P processor, but its graphics subsystem is no match for the iGPU in the Ryzen 7 6800U.

As a result, before the end of the year, at least two more portable set-top boxes with Windows that can handle modern games should appear on the market. True, apparently, in both cases we are talking about a Full HD screen, which creates an additional load on the GPU. For the same Steam Deck, the resolution is HD.
