Twitter must give Elon Musk documents from former product manager Beykpour

Elon Musk’s lawyers won a partial victory this week in their Delaware Court of Chancery battle against Twitter with a motion seeking information from 22 Twitter employees, or “trustees,” in addition to 41 others that both sides have already agreed to for sharing data. Judge Kathaleen McCormick ruled on the case Monday afternoon, ruling that Twitter must “collect, review and produce documents” from just one of the individuals listed: Kayvon Beykpour, the former head of consumer products at Twitter.

With the Oct. 17 trial date for Twitter’s lawsuit against Musk to try to break up their $44 billion deal looming — and Musk selling billions of dollars worth of his shares in Tesla — his lawyers are trying to find something to back up their arguments that Twitter committed fraud, while Twitter̵[ads1]7;s legal team is issuing subpoenas to help their case. Insider reports, based on an anonymous source, that Musk’s lawyers pursued information from Twitter employees ranging from mid-level managers to lower-level employees, noting that his legal team filed a new motion to compel information about Twitter’s user data, as well as its methods which is used to collect and analyze it.

As detailed in a lengthy countersuit (to which Twitter has already responded), they argue that the company is putting walls in the way of Musk’s efforts to verify data on how many daily active users are actually bots, as Musk disputes the company’s claim that spambots accounts for fewer than 5 percent of the accounts it measures.

When Beykpour appeared on spring Decoder podcast last year to talk about Twitter’s upcoming plans, we described him as “responsible for deciding what tools Twitter actually builds for people to express themselves.” These tools included things like Super Follows, the Spaces live sound rooms, and the Revue newsletters.

However, he is now a former executive after Twitter’s new CEO, Parag Agrawal, fired Beykpour and the corresponding head of revenue, Bruce Falck, in a sweeping move on May 12. Beykpour explained his departure with tweeting“Parag asked me to leave after telling me he wants to take the team in a different direction.”

Bloomberg reports Musk attorney Alex Spiro said, “we look forward to reviewing Beykpour’s communications and will continue to seek information and witnesses until the full truth comes out.”
