Twitter Purchase on Hold Pending Investigation Into Spam Bots ➝

Cindy Harper, writing for Reclaim the Net:

Elon Musk’s bid for Twitter is currently “on hold,” the Tesla CEO announced on the platform, while an investigation takes place to determine the number of bots/spam accounts represented on the platform.

In a filing this month, Twitter alleged that less than 5% of its daily active users were fake or spam accounts.

Musk appears to want to ensure that this is indeed accurate.

How wild would it be if a significant portion of Twitter’s user base is just spam and bot accounts and they’ve been lying about it to investors?
