Twitter and fake accounts

Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, is currently the richest man in the world, according to the magazine Forbeswith wealth estimated at 230,000 million dollars.

This businessman, who was admired and criticized, shocked the financial world in April when he announced he wanted to buy Twitter.

The millionaire said Tuesday that he would not pursue his announced purchase of Twitter unless the company showed the public that less than 5% of the platform’s accounts were fake or spam.

Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal states that the platform suspends more than half a million accounts that appear to be fake every daymany times before they are public and each week it blocks millions of supposed users on suspicion that they are accounts managed by a computer application.

Internal analysis shows that less than 5% of active accounts in an average day qualify as “spam,” but these accounts cannot be copied by third parties due to privacy requirements, Agrawal says .

provocative tweet

Musk – who says “bots” are a plague on Twitter and he makes it a priority to remove them if he controls the platform – responded to Agrawal’s explanation in a tweet, shaped like a shit icon.

“So advertisers know what they’re getting for their money?” Musk added in another dialogue about the need to prove that Twitter users are everyone.

Musk ruled that “this is critical to Twitter’s financial health.”

Musk said his motivation to buy comes from a desire to ensure free speech on the platform and in boost the monetization of a page that is very influential but it is difficult to have growth that is profitable.

The businessman also stated in favor of removing the veto from the platform against former US President Donald Trump imposed after his supporters, inflamed with his tweets alleging voter fraud, attacked the United States Congress on January 6, 2021.
