The billionaire went on to explain that Tesla is certainly gaining a lot of momentum, which was referring to a previous announcement during the presentation about the automaker that recently produced its three-millionth electric vehicle since the beginning in 2004.

“I wonder how many cars we will have in 10 years,” Musk said, pausing quietly to reflect.

“10 years ago we had less than 3,000 cars and now we have made three million.”

Someone in the audience immediately shouted “300 million”, which caused a laugh from Musk who immediately said that “100 million is quite feasible”.

According to the billionaire, this will be done by expanding the four fully operational giant factories into 12, and Tesla will likely reveal the location of a new factory later this year.

However, Musk has yet to face the lawsuit filed against him by Twitter.

Tesla’s CEO had offered to buy the social media platform for $ 44 billion, but then backed out saying that Twitter did not provide enough information on the number of fake accounts on the site.

On Wednesday, Twitter denied in a court statement that it deprived its would-be buyer of necessary information or misrepresented details about his business.

That fate of that acquisition, which Musk agreed without taking the time to look into the details of Twitter’s business, now rests with a Delaware court where Twitter is suing to force Musk to complete the deal. The trial is scheduled for October 17.

The court’s decision could ultimately determine the future of a social platform used daily by 238 million people around the world: a narrow audience by the standards of Facebook and other major platforms, but which includes political leaders, great entertainers and experts. on a variety of subjects. Until January 2021, it also hosted the then president of the United States, Donald Trump.

In an unexpected twist, Twitter was able to present its response to Musk before Musk’s counter-arguments surfaced in public. A judge ruled Wednesday that Musk’s counterclaim will be made public by Friday.

Portions of Musk’s counterclaim, however, were included in Twitter’s response. These include accusing the company of fraud and “delay tactics” and providing Musk with only “sanitized and incomplete information” in response to his questions about spam accounts and other business metrics.

While Twitter has claimed that Musk is making up reasons to give up on buying the company, Musk’s lawyers say Twitter is the one holding back the deal by “dragging its feet” and providing insufficient data to the billionaire’s claims.

In a response filed with Delaware Chancery Court Thursday, Twitter calls Musk’s reasoning “a story, imagined in an attempt to escape a merger deal that Musk no longer found attractive.”

Musk is also facing a lawsuit from Twitter, which he spoke about during the meeting.  He told the audience that Twitter fit the grand view of his holding him.  He said that since he uses Twitter a lot, with over 100 million followers, he knows what to do with it

“Counterclaims are a litigation story that is contradicted by evidence and common sense,” says Twitter’s response. “Musk invents representations that Twitter has never made and then tries to selectively use the extensive confidential data Twitter has provided him to evoke a violation of those alleged representations.”

At the same time, the reply states, Musk also accused Twitter of violating their agreement by “obstructing” his requests for information.

Musk representatives did not immediately return a message for comment Thursday, although Musk spoke briefly about Twitter at Tesla’s annual shareholders’ meeting.

He told the audience that Twitter fit the grand vision of his holding company. He said that since he uses Twitter a lot, with over 100 million followers, he knows what to do with it.

“I understand the product pretty well,” he said. “So I think I have a good sense of where to direct Twitter’s engineering team to make it radically better,” she said.
