Elon Musk threatens to sue Microsoft over Twitter data

Twitter boss Elon Musk has threatened to sue Microsoft as he accused the technology giant of using data from his social media company without permission. In February, Twitter started charging for the data it collects from "Hundreds of millions" of users, with a basic plan starting at $100 a month. Since buying Twitter for $44bn in October, Mr Musk has cut its workforce by around 80% and moved to boost the company's finances through measures including charging users for "Blue tick" verification.

Mr Musk added that Twitter could be profitable by the second quarter of 2023, and he would be willing to sell the company if the right person came along.
