Elon Musk challenges Twitter CEO’s public debate over bot accounts

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta — After posting a 165-page argument base explaining why he no longer wants to move forward with the Twitter takeover deal, Elon Musk offer yet another to the public for the Twitter bots question. He challenged Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal to join in a debate on the actual percentage of bot accounts on the microblogging platform.

“Let him prove to the public that Twitter has no more than five percent fake or spam daily users!” said Elon Musk’s challenge on Saturday, August 6, 2022. In his tweet, Elon specifically mentions @paraga, the account owned by Parag Agrawal.

Elon Musk also polled his 102 million followers to see if they believed Twitter’s claim that fake/spam accounts only account for 5% of daily active users, or even less than that. The two answer options provided are “Yes” with a three robot emoji and “Lmaoo no”.

According to this article, Monday August 8, 2022, the poll results showed 64.9% who said they did not believe it. The results were final with a record total of 822,766 participating votes.

Of course, neither Agrawal nor Twitter boss Bret Taylor has responded to this outcome, as their real “war” with Elon Musk in front of a judge and jury is set to begin within the next few months.

As is known, Twitter sued, forcing Elon Musk to back out of a $44 billion takeover deal. Twitter lawyers are investigating Elon Musk’s cases, trying to find evidence that there are issues other than the transparency of the bot account data that Musk disputes.
