Elon Musk promises to deal with crypto scam bots

Recently, Elon Musk has several time initiated Twitter discussions about crypto scam bots that have been spreading around Twitter space. One of the problems Musk said he would solve when he buys Twitter and takes in private is get it rid of these fake accounts.

However, the “when” has recent become an “if” since Musk put the Twitter acquisition deal on hold. As Musk stated, 90 percent of Twitter users could be scam bots. So now he is waiting for a confirmation that these comprise not more than just five percent of all Twitter user-base.

However, as reported earlier this week, according to a high-profile Twitter executive Vijaya Gadde, there is “no such thing as a deal being on hold,” and everything in this one is going as planned with Elon Musk.
