    Anybody following this? If the bots are higher than stated, advertisers aren’t getting what they pay for and the humans are severely over counted. …..Musk could have greatly overpaid. I guess the random analyzed sample amount is only 100 to determine the percentage of bots. With many millions of Twitter users, wouldn’t a better random sample be 10 thousand?

    Is it a way for Musk to get the price down or to uncover the fraud at Twitter then get out of the deal?

    I’m not on social media but this is an interesting story.

    Was really looking forward to Musk's purchase. If it doesnt happen, I seriously hope he invests in a brand new platform that he builds from the ground up. If they feel safer there, let the children have their Twitter. Would like to see the adults play in another room.

    No idea what that is. You know I'm not a social media fan. This website is all I'm comfortable with - and that's stretching it - for me.

    I’m getting the feeling the bot amount is going to be double digits percentage wise.

    Since it's a thread about something Elon Musk...

    SpaceX fires at least five over letter critical of Elon Musk

    So SpaceX terminated a bunch of its employees this week = employees that were putting pressure (bullying) other employees into signing some sort of "letter" to Musk designed to force his hand into opening the workplace doors to recognize ALL special pronoun employees and the like. Sorry, but to me - like the people writing and pushing this letter - its all just silliness. Seems to me the REAL issue may be the fact that Musk recently brought the place back into a 40-hr on-site work week. No doubt having the ability to sit around the house all day in their jammies and Pooh Bear sox taken from them has pizzed them off huge.
