Elon Musk and his legal team have issued a subpoena to Twitter whistleblower Peiter Zatko.

Elon Musk is trying to subpoena the information that The Whistleblower has on Twitter including information about Bots, as well as the security that the company had set in place and whether or not it complied with an FTC consent decree. Basically, telling the company that it needed to put security in place and that it needed to ensure that its user data was protected.

Now, what we know about the bots so far is basically all that Twitter has been saying the whole time that they claim that of monetizable daily active users, 5% or less are Bots. Now, Elon Musk has repeatedly said that that's not true and that it could be as high as 20% or more of those users. Now, where we get into the weeds here is where the whistleblowers. As you know, Twitter has done a good job of getting rid of bots when it comes to monetizable daily active users. But not when it comes to overall are all Twitter user.
