On the aspect of free speech, the revelations further exposes the micro-blogging app of not being democratic.
The billionaire CEO of Tesla, last Friday, said his $44 billion deal to buy the micro-blogging site is on hold pending details about fake accounts.
Musk revealed this via tweets he tweeted via his Twitter handle.
He also said that the deal is now on pause because the calculations about spam messages were not clear.
The world’s richest man had said during the onset of the Twitter buyoff deal that he would remove “spam bots” from Twitter.
Twitter had claimed that bot accounts only account for less than 5% of Twitter’s over 229 million daily active users.
There are so many Twitter bots and spam accounts and Twitter has had a history of battling them.
Twitter says the fake, spam and bots accounts post divisive and violent tweets and spread misinformation.
These fake accounts mostly violate the company’s policies that ban “commercially-motivated spam.”
The fake, spam and bot accounts also make “inauthentic engagements” meant to make something seem more popular than it is.
They also engage in “coordinated activity” that tries to manipulate conversations.
And “coordinated harmful activity that encourages or promotes behavior which violates the Twitter Rules.”
So, when the deal was announced in late April, Musk said he wanted to make Twitter “better than ever” by “defeating the spam bots and authenticating all humans.”
Also, there are rumours the Tesla boss might want to back out of the Twitter deal entirely.
Some analysts at Wedbush Securities, a Los Angeles-based investment firm, Dan Ives and John Katsingris, share this thought.
“If Musk does decide to still go down the deal path, a clear renegotiation is likely on the table which calls into question a number of topics (financing path, leverage of Tesla stock, prior financing partners, employee reaction).”
“Many will view this as Musk using this Twitter filing/spam accounts as a way to get out of this deal in a vastly changing market.”
However, if Elon Musk decides to back out of the deal, then he will pay $1b fee to the company.
This is clearly in the deal to buy Twitter.
Moreover, the current revelation by Alex Martinez affirms “Twitter not here “To Give People Free Speech.”
The Lead Client Partner also refused to take Elon Musk very “Seriously” Due to “Asperger’s” Making Him “Special.”
Alex Martinez said thus:
“Well, right now, we don’t make profit.
“So, its gonna say ideology which is what’s let us into not being profitable.”
“The rest of us who have been here believe in something that is good for the planet and not just to give people free speech.”
