Uber and Lyft’s public spat continues

Uber and Lyft are at each other’s throats. After the CNN report yesterday that Uber employees had ordered and canceled more than 5,000 Lyft rides, Uber released a statement to The New York Times saying Lyft employees had done the same to Uber drivers 12,900 times. It didn’t explain how it reached that number. Uber did, however, claim that Lyft’s investors are upset that Uber won’t acquire it. One of those investors, Andreessen Horowitz’s Scott Weiss, refuted and told The New York Times, “There’s never been a conversation to say, ‘Let’s go pressure Uber to buy Lyft,’ to my knowledge.”
