Elon Musk has been publicly doubting on its bid to acquire Twitter for about $44 billion as tech stock dropped

It started Friday morning when he tweeted the deal was temporarily “on hold”, and later he was “still committed” to the purchase. That evening, he said his team would check how many spambots were in 100 accounts.
