Elon Musk may be in the middle of a legal battle with Twitter after walking away from a $44 billion takeover deal, but that has not stopped him making jokes about the situation.

The world's richest man tweeted on Saturday combining Tesla with Twitter would produce "Twizzler."

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO also said he likes "a little nonsense."

A letter filed by Musk's lawyers with the Securities and Exchange Commission in early July accused the social media platform of failing to comply with its obligations to disclose the number of fake accounts.

On Friday, he filed a counter lawsuit after Twitter sued him for attempting to walk away from the deal.

Twitter has denied withholding bot information from Musk, later stating in legal documents that Musk didn't read a summary the company gave him on how it calculates bot numbers.

Musk also tweeted on Friday: "Interaction with almost all twitter accounts seem to be much lower in recent weeks & days. Accurate?"

The details of Musk's counter lawsuit aren't yet public, but under court rules the 164-page redacted version could soon be released.
