Elon Musk suggests slashing Twitter offer based on number of bots

................................................

"Elon Musk suggested Saturday that his agreement to purchase Twitter for $44 billion and take it private should be cut proportionate to the number of bots on the platform."

Musk tweeted "Absolutely" in response to from Ian Miles Cheong, who tweeted: "If 25% of the users are bots then the Twitter acquisition deal should cost 25% less."

"The Tesla CEO also expressed skepticism at Twitter's willingness to address the presence of bots on their platform, tweeting,"

"I’m worried that Twitter has a disincentive to reduce spam, as it reduces perceived daily users."

"They still refuse to explain how they calculate that 5% of daily users are fake/spam! Very suspicious," he added in a separate tweet.

"Last week, Musk set transparency on the number of fake or spam accounts as a key condition for his pending $44 billion purchase of Twitter to go through."

Musk tweeted, "20% fake/spam accounts, while 4 times what Twitter claims, could be *much* higher. My offer was based on Twitter’s SEC filings being accurate."
