A large majority of Twitter shareholders approved the buyout, now Musk wants to fight his way out of it.
Elon Musk proposed a buyout of Twitter in April. And even if he has filed numerous requests to terminate the agreement, Twitter, on the other side, has encouraged investors to accept it. With a deal now approved by a large majority of shareholders, Twitter will continue with a lawsuit intended to force Musk to go ahead with the acquisition.

As noted by The Verge, the approval means that Musk and Twitter will proceed to an October trial in the Delaware Court of Chancery. During the trial, Musk will continue arguing that Twitter concealed important facts about its internal operations, including an alleged undercount of spam and bot accounts on the platform as well as details revealed by former Twitter security head Peiter “Mudge” Zatko. On the other hand, Twitter will push to close the deal regardless, alleging that Musk’s complaints are merely a pretext for backing out.
