Elon Musk hits back at Twitter's court threat in the most Elon Musk way possible

Elon Musk, of course, made fun of Twitter's attempts to pressure him into buying the firm in a tweet.

Musk tweeted four pictures of himself laughing early on Monday, along with the comments, "They claimed I couldn't purchase Twitter.

Then they wouldn't reveal information on bots. In court, they now want to order me to purchase Twitter. They are now have to reveal bot information in court.

Following that, Musk tweeted, "Chuckmate," along with a photo of actor Chuck Norris playing chess with just one pawn on his side of the board and all the pieces on the other.

Musk announced late Friday that he was terminating his agreement to purchase Twitter, citing the absence of evidence regarding the proportion of Twitter users who are bots.

That put Twitter "in serious breach of many sections" of the original agreement, according to his attorney.

In response, Twitter declared that it would "seek legal action to enforce the merger agreement.

Twitter (TWTR) shareholders aren't amused. The social media site's stock fell 5% in early pre-market trade on Monday.

Shares closed Friday at $36.81, significantly below the agreed-upon purchase price of $54.20 per share in April.
