Twitter Inc. was sued by one of its software suppliers for allegedly refusing to honor a multiyear, multimillion-dollar contract, the latest complaint suggesting that new management under Elon Musk is burning relations with business partners.

Imply Data Inc. claims that after paying invoices totaling about $4.4 million under a contract for proprietary software services that runs until 2024, Twitter didn’t pay its Nov. 30 quarterly bill and “disclaimed any obligation to pay any future invoices,” according to the complaint filed in San Francisco state court. Imply estimated its damages at more than $8 million.
