Dropout Musk summons his alma mater; Stanford University is involved in Twitter takeover
Musk’s attorney, Alex Spiro, said the team is currently seeking “information about Twitter’s email accounts” and wants to get all “information between Twitter and Stanford and its associates.” Conversations, meetings, discussions, interviews, meetings, negotiations and agreements” records.
It is reported that in 1995, Musk studied for a doctorate in physics at Stanford University, but chose to drop out after two days. In August, Musk tweeted that he had received a letter from a Stanford professor about a cutting-edge study he had missed.
It is unclear what connection Musk believes between Stanford and the Twitter deal, but it is understood that Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal holds a Ph.D. in computer science from Stanford University.
Spokespeople for Twitter and Stanford did not respond to requests for comment.
