Elon musk confronts CEO Parag Agrawal on number of bots on Twitter platform


Tesla CEO, Elon Musk has challenged Twitter CEO to a public debate on the number of bots on the platform.

Determined not to go ahead with the $44 billion deal to acquire Twitter, the world’s richest man, Elon Musk has challenged the platform’s CEO, Parag Agrawal to a debate on bots.

Musk went on a tweet storm on Friday and Saturday and said that Twitter failed to provide accurate information on the number of bots or spam accounts on its platform.

The billionaire also stated that the company did not want to provide 100 sampling accounts from which they determine if they were fake or genuine

The billionaire filed a bid to buy Twitter in April this year. After the companies accepted to move on with the deal which will take Twitter private, Musk said he was ending the deal and accused the microblogging site of giving fake numbers, including its SEC filings which concern the amount of daily active users which are monetizable and the number of spam and bot accounts on the platform.

Twitter took Musk to court in Delaware to force the deal through, prompting Musk to file a countersuit on July 29.

In a slew of tweets on Saturday, August 6, 2022, the Tesla CEO interacted with a follower who summarised his indictments about Twitter including that it was giving him old data and a fake data set when he requested that Twitter send him how it calculates monetizable daily active users and estimates for spam and bot accounts.

According to CNBC, Musk summarised the problem as Twitter not wanting to provide their methods of sampling 100 accounts and how they know they are genuine.

The billionaire also ran a poll on Saturday, August 6, 2022, asking his 100 million followers to vote on how many percentages of Twitter accounts are fake or spam.

He also tweeted on the same day that he is challenging Parag Agrawal, Twitter CEO to a public debate about bots on Twitter, saying ‘let him prove to the public that less than 5 percent or spam daily users.’

The company did not confirm if the debate will happen, but a source in the company said it is very unlikely.
