Ilan Musk has reiterated his claim that fake accounts and bots make up more than 20% of Twitter users. He went on to say that the process of taking over Twitter will not progress until the task is clarified. The CEO of Twitter says that all these fake accounts make up less than 5% of the total number of users of this social network, but Mr. Musk does not accept this estimate. According to the official announcement of Twitter, this platform has about 226 million daily active users and Mr. Musk wants to take over the whole company by paying 44 billion dollars.
One of the sites reported that the number of fake users of this Social network should be about 20%. On the other hand, Ilan Mask wrote in response to this number, although this 20% is a very high figure, but the real figure may be much higher. "Yesterday, the Twitter CEO refused to show evidence that the number of fake users was less than 5 percent," he tweeted. "Unless he does that, the deal can not move forward." Mr Musk has apparently been told that there is currently no definitive way to identify the number of bats. Experts believe that these margins are created to lower the price of Twitter. Ilan Musk did not rule out the possibility of a lower-priced deal yesterday. The company is committed. The CEO of Twitter wrote yesterday that such an estimate could not be made by a foreign company because important and private information is involved in this process. Ilan Musk also responded to the remarks with an emoji.
Mr. Musk says that when even Twitter executives themselves do not know the exact number of fake users, then how do they reassure advertisers about the impact of the ad? Ilan Musk has repeatedly said that after taking over Twitter, he will focus more seriously on eliminating unrealistic users. He also promised to prioritize free speech and open source algorithms used on Twitter.
