The company sued Musk after he said he wanted to stop the deal.
On Friday, Musk's lawyers told the SEC that he wanted to end the deal, and that he had not been given information about how it calculates the number of bots.
The company is trying to force Musk to buy it. In the legal battle between them, the issue of whether Musk's concerns about bot numbers were legitimate is important.
According to the lawsuit, Musk demanded more and more information about how it measures the amount of fake accounts.
In one instance, Musk didn't even look at the information that was provided, but that's because it wasbent over backwards.
In a June 30 meeting with Ned Segal, Musk admitted he had not looked at a summary he'd been sent detailing how the company samples the number of bots on its platform.
"Segal offered to spend time with Musk and review the detailed summary of the sampling process as the team had done with Musk's advisers." The lawsuit said that the meeting never took place.
Musk was accused of using the number of bots on the platform as a ruse to pull out of the deal because his personal wealth had shrunk.
It said that Musk's preoccupation with bot numbers made no sense, as he had previously said that he wanted to get rid of the fake accounts on the platform.
In May, Musk said the deal was temporarily on hold until the number of bot accounts could be verified.
The analysts speculated at the time that it could be a ploy to get a better price for the company.
When contacted by Insider, Musk did not reply.
