Only time will tell if Musk will really buy the British football club, but Twitter is already having a meltdown. Tweeter extraordinaire Musk was joking about his political allegiances when he dropped the ManU bomb out of nowhere. “To be clear, I support the left half of the Republican Party and the right half of the Democratic Party!” He tweeted, and then added in the thread: “Also, I’m buying Manchester United ur welcome [sic]”.

Meanwhile, the Musk vs Twitter saga continues. The US judge in the Twitter vs Elon Musk legal battle over cancellation of the $44 billion takeover deal has set October 17 as the beginning date of the high-profile trial.
Judge Kathaleen McCormick in the Delaware Court of Chancery issued an official schedule, with the high-profile trial starting from October 17 and continuing till October 21.
Twitter wanted the trial to begin on October 10, but Musk said he wanted it to start a week later, stressing that the extra week of preparation time would be crucial.
“The parties shall work together in good faith on the scheduling and location of depositions. The parties will not require a subpoena to produce for deposition, on reasonable notice, persons under their respective control, including their respective current directors, officers, employees, and experts and documents under the parties’ control in the possession of such persons,” the judge said in the case scheduling order.
