Musk recently made a statement saying Twitter in India should comply with the local laws enforced. He then went on to say that the social media giant had lost its third-largest market since it made an unsuccessful attempt to disclose “risky” litigation opposing the Indian government. This is how the rift between Elon Musk and Twitter has not subsided.

This statement was disclosed in a Delaware court countersuit, which was filed last Friday under seal and made public this Thursday.
