Elon Musk got a blast when he made his original $44 billion offer to buy Twitter back on the table

Days before a court battle over his months-long attempt to walk away from the same settlement.

But as the two try to strike a fresh deal, Twitter wants to make sure Musk doesn't back down this time,
