Twitter to grant Elon Musk unprecedented access to ‘firehose’ data to save deal
Reportedly, Twitter will grant Elon Musk unprecedented access to its data to address his concerns over automated accounts.
The tech giant is preparing to grant the Tesla CEO access to “firehose” API, which contains every tweet as it is posted, The Post reported citing a source.
Musk committed to purchasing Twitter in April but he has grown vocal about the platform’s possible bot activity in what some experts watch as an effort to renegotiate or cancel the deal.
In a filing with the US Securities Exchange on Monday, Musk accused Twitter of breaching their agreement by not providing sufficient data on automated accounts. He also rejected the company’s offer to provide more detail on its internal studies.
