Elon Musk: The process of getting rid of fake accounts begins
Elon Musk, an American billionaire and the owner of the Twitter platform, declared today, December 1, 2022, that the process of cleaning up the platform of fake accounts has started. "You may see a decrease in the number of followers," Musk wrote in a tweet on his official Twitter account on the well-known social networking site. Twitter is starting to delete a lot of spam (fraudulent) accounts at the moment
Despite previously stating his desire to leave the site, Musk purchased Twitter for $ 44 billion in late October. Musk threatened to back out of the Twitter acquisition deal because, in his opinion, the social media site had not disclosed the number of bogus accounts it included. Musk, the owner of Tesla and the founder of SpaceX, first decided to back out of the arrangement after the network turned to the legal system to force him to pay for space missions. However, this forced Musk to change his mind. Musk had already reported a record increase in the number of new users joining the well-known platform
Musk said the number of new users signing up on the social media platform had reached an "ever high" as he grappled with an exodus of advertisers and users fleeing to other platforms over concerns about checking accounts and hate speech. And the French Press Agency quoted Musk as saying, in a tweet late on Saturday evening, that the average number of subscribers reached more than two million per day during the seven days ending on November 16, an increase of 66 per cent compared to the same week in 2021
Averaging roughly eight billion minutes each day for the seven days ending on November 15, up 30% from the same week last year, users spent a record amount of time engaged on the site, according to him. When compared to October of last year, hate speech had decreased by November 13.
