Twitter’s Problems Being Exposed With Release Of Data That Shows Half Of Biden’s Followers Are Fake Accounts

Elon Musk knows that Twitter is in trouble; he has stepped forward to clean up, but now there is a fear that the customer base of Twitter is not nearly as large as they are claiming and could end up being 75% or even 50% as large as claims, this would seriously affect their net worth. Musk, who wants to open the platform for free speech and for a profit, to turn the company into the black, sees a problem that could put the whole deal with this platform in jeopardy—case in point, Joe Biden’s followers.

According to Newsweek, almost half of President Joe Biden’s current 22.2 million followers on Twitter are fake accounts, according to an audit tool provided by software company SparkToro.

SparkToro’s tool found that 49.3 percent of accounts following the official @POTUS Twitter account are “fake followers” based on several factors, including location issues, default profile images, and new users.

The way that SparkToro defined “fake followers” is as follows: “accounts that are unreachable and will not see the account’s tweets (either because they’re spam, bots, propaganda, etc. or because they’re no longer active on Twitter).”

Twitter’s current leadership has told Musk and the rest of its shareholders that less than 5% of its users are fake. Musk believes the number is much higher because Musk is a thoughtful, rational, logical person. He said, “My offer was based on Twitter’s SEC filings being accurate. Yesterday, Twitter’s CEO publicly refused to show proof of <5%. This deal cannot move forward until he does.”

Musk gave his usual feedback on this:

Did Twitter know of this when they released their report claiming that they had only 5% of fake accounts? If they did, they could be in huge trouble for lying in their corporate reports, not to mention they have been misleading investors. This could see prosecution come against those responsible if they are found to be true.

It is not clear how Musk arrived at the 20 percent figure. He and Agrawal exchanged a series of tweets about the issue of fake accounts on Monday.

“We suspend over half a million spam accounts every day, usually before any of you even see them on Twitter. We also lock millions of accounts each week that we suspect may be spam, if they can’t pass human verification challenges (captchas, phone verification, etc),” Agrawal wrote.

This was followed up on Twitter:

This was quickly responded to by CEO Parag Agrawal of Twitter, who went on a Tweetstorm over how things were not as they seem, I found it rather funny how Musk responded to one of these tweets:

TRENDING: BIDEN HIRES WHITE-COLLAR CRIME ATTORNEY. IS HE ANTICIPATING CHARGES OR IMPEACHMENT IF THE GOP TAKES BACK BOTH HOUSES?

Even if Musk walks away from this deal, Twitter will be left in shambles, with legal issues rising to the point that it could sink the current leadership.

All is well when things end well.
