Early Monday, Musk tweeted four images of him laughing next to captions that read: "They said I couldn't buy Twitter. Then they wouldn't disclose bot information. Now they want to force me to buy Twitter in court. Now they have to disclose bot information in court."That was soon followed by a picture of actor Chuck Norris playing chess with only a single pawn on his side of the board, and a complete set of pieces on the other side, with Musk tweeting, "Chuckmate."Musk disclosed late Friday he was pulling out of his agreement to buy Twitter, citing the lack of information about the number of Twitter users made up of bots. His lawyer said that placed Twitter "in material breach of multiple provisions" of the original agreement. Twitter responded by saying it would "pursue legal action to enforce the merger agreement."Read MoreElon Musk's bumpy road to possibly owning Twitter: A timelineInvestors in Twitter (TWTR) aren't laughing.
