Recently-released text messages between Elon Musk and Parag Agrawal shed some light on how the Tesla billionaire’s relationship with CEO of Twitter soured over the course of a few days. The texts were revealed in court filings as part of Twitter’s lawsuit against Musk, who tried to back out of his deal to buy the social media giant before announcing, just a day ago, that he was willing to go ahead with it.
As part of the pretrial discovery process, the Delaware Chancery Court also released Musk’s private communication with people like Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman, podcaster Joe Rogan and journalist Gayle King.
But in a text dump with hundreds of conversations between Musk and investors jostling for a piece of the Twitter deal and journalists angling for an interview, only one person came out looking good – Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal.
A Bloomberg report notes how Agrawal is one of the few people who approached Musk on an “even keel.”
