90% of Comments on My Twitter Account Are Bots: Elon Musk

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk on Tuesday again hit out at Twitter, saying 90 percent of the comments on his tweets are actually bots or spam replies.

Elon Musk shared screenshots of replies by the fake Twitter account of Changpeng Zhao, Founder, and CEO of leading crypto exchange Binance.

“And 90 percent of my comments are bots,” he said in a tweet.

A follower asked Elon Musk: “Do you think the number of likes you get has a similar proportion of bots vs humans at 90%?”

Earlier this month, Elon Musk went after Parag Agrawal-led platform after a top cybersecurity expert claimed that as high as eight in 10 Twitter accounts are fake.

Dan Woods, Global Head of Intelligence at cybersecurity company F5, told The Australian that more than 80 percent of Twitter accounts are probably bots — a massive claim as Twitter says only 5 percent of its users are bots/spams.

“Sure sounds higher than 5 percent,” tweeted Elon Musk, along with tagging the news article.

“On a $/bot basis, this deal is awesome,” he added.

Elon Musk has terminated the $44 billion Twitter takeover deal, and the matter is now in a US court, over the presence of bots on the platform, and seeks answers from Agrawal via an open debate.

The Elon Musk-Twitter trial is slated to begin on October 17.

According to Woods, a former CIA, and FBI cybersecurity specialist, both Elon Musk and Twitter have underestimated the bot problem on the micro-blogging platform.
