Twitter drags Silicon Valley's biggest names into Elon Musk lawsuit

Twitter is raising the stakes on its court case with Elon Musk to new heights.

A subpoena was issued to some of Silicon Valley’s biggest names surrounding Musk’s deal to acquire the social media company.

Twitter has discovered enough information to legally force Musk to go ahead with the deal, which he terminated previously.

Twitter has sought information from Chamath Palihapitiya, a senior executive at Facebook.

David Sacks, the founding COO of PayPal was among the 17 others who were issued the notice.

Earlier in April, Musk had sought to acquire the social media giant for $44 billion.

He has since changed his mind after claiming that he was not getting the data he was seeking.

Elon Musk is the richest man in the world with a net worth of $240 billion.
