Elon Musk

Social media destroys civilization!

Twitter executive calling Elon Musk mentally handicapped, "special" and saying he has "aspergers."
Wow, that's almost as bad as calling some random dude a pedophile.

I heard it was a blast from my friend, he got some pretty up close pictures of the rockers. It was the best festival lineup I've been to since the original 1991 Lollapalooza.

I think that's why he wants it done. True story: Twitter already does it. And provided it to him. Does that include alternate accounts? If you are correct, it would be quite a blow to Twitter's value. I dunno. Twitter knows a bunch of accounts are fake, but they don't "monetize" them.

Twitter says 5%, but Musk suspects 20%.
Musk doesn't have the data to do the evaluation.

I'm going to guess bots/fakes are about 50% of all users. But the metric being evaluated is very specific.
