Elon Musk pledges to deal with crypto scam bots
Recently, Elon Musk has initiated Twitter discussions several times about crypto scam bots proliferating across the Twitter space. One of the problems Musk said he solves when he buys Twitter and takes it private is getting rid of these fake accounts.
However, the “when” has recently become an “if” since Musk put the Twitter takeover on hold. As Musk mentioned, 90 percent of Twitter users could be scammers. So now he’s waiting for confirmation that these make up no more than just five percent of all Twitter user base.
However, as reported earlier this week, according to high-profile Twitter executive Vijaya Gadde, there is “no such thing as a deal on hold,” and everything in this one is going as planned with Elon Musk†
How DOGE Can Be Used Against Scam Bots: Musk, M. Cuban
In early May, Musk supported the idea of using Dogecoin to fight crypto scam bots on Twitter, suggested by billionaire investor and DOGE fan Mark Cuban.
Cuban, whose Dallas Mavericks basketball team sells tickets and merchandise for DOGE on their online store, suggested it would be a good idea to get every Twitter user to set up 1 Dogecoin for unlimited messages.
In this way, real users, humans, could receive DOGE paid by bots after disputing his or her post.
