Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Monday gave the strongest hint that he would like to pay for Twitter less than his $ 44 billion offer made last month. Musk said at a technology conference in Miami that a viable deal at a lower price would not be ruled out, according to Bloomberg News, which said he watched a video of the conference live, posted by Twitter users.

Also at the All In Summit, Musk It is estimated that at least 20 percent of Twitter’s 229 million accounts are spam bots, a percentage he said is at the lowest level in his estimation. The appearance came hours after Musk began trolling Twitter CEO Parag Agraval, who posted a series of tweets explaining his bot’s campaign efforts and how it consistently estimates that less than 5% of Twitter accounts are fake.

In general, the day’s events reinforced analysts’ theories that Musk either wants to exit the deal or is pushing for a lower price, largely due to a huge drop in Tesla’s share price, some of which he promised to fund the acquisition of Twitter. Shares of Twitter closed just over 8 percent on Monday and stood at $ 37.39, lower than shares were shortly before Musk revealed he is Twitter’s largest shareholder. On April 14, Musk offered to buy Twitter for $ 54.20 per share.
