Ken Griffin’s on the list. So are Jack Dorsey, Larry Ellison and Marc Andreessen. Not to mention Morgan Stanley and Sequoia Capital.

Twitter Inc. is subpoenaing a veritable Who’s Who of Wall Street and Silicon Valley as part of its legal battle to force Elon Musk to complete his proposed $44 billion acquisition. The social media company is on the hunt for any evidence that Musk’s claim he pulled the plug on the deal over spam and bot accounts on the platform is just pretext. Investors, bankers, friends and anyone else Musk might have spoken to about the deal are fair game.
