Elon Musk, the billionaire, said on Saturday that he had violated a nondisclosure agreement. By revealing that the sample size for the social media platform’s automatic user checks was 100.

Mr. Musk, the CEO of electric vehicle maker Tesla Inc, tweeted, “Twitter legal just phoned to complain that I breached their NDA by exposing the bot check sample size is 100!”

Mr. Musk tweeted on Friday that his $44 billion cash plan to take the firm private was “temporarily on hold” while he awaited data on the company’s bogus account proportion.

To identify the bots, he said his team would test “a random sample of 100 followers” on Twitter. Twitter made the charge after his response to a query.

When a user asked Musk to “elaborate on process of filtering bot accounts,” he replied, “I picked 100 as the sample size number, because that is what Twitter uses to calculate <5% fake/spam/duplicate.”
