Musk calls for proof of fake Twitter accounts

The owner of Tesla is waiting to resolve the issue of the bots that are on the Twitter platform

Entrepreneur Elon Musk, founder and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, explained that Twitter must present evidence that the number of false accounts on its social network is less than 5% for the purchase offer for 44,000 million dollars to go ahead.

On Friday, Musk himself already decided to “temporarily” suspend the agreement “pending details that support the calculation that fake/spam accounts represent less than 5% of users.”

In a new message posted on the social network this week, Musk noted that the social network’s CEO recently refused to show proof that fake accounts are less than 5%. “The deal can’t go forward until it does.”

In relation to the calculation made by some analysis firms that the number of false accounts could reach 20%, Musk indicated that the figure could be “much higher”. Faced with a message from another user assuring that the number of false accounts could be above 50%, Musk has responded “exactly”.
