Elon Musk announced Friday that the Twitter deal is on hold until he receives more information about how many fake accounts there are on the platform.

Twitter’s stock plummeted 19% following the announcement.

A spokesperson for Twitter did not immediately respond to a CNBC request for comment.

Musk announced last month that he intends to buy Twitter for $44 billion.

Even before Friday’s announcement, the company’s market cap had fallen to $9 billion beneath the offer price due to concerns about the deal.
