Billionaire revealed that the size of the sample for verification of bots in the social network was cem profiles
Elon Musk said on Saturday (14) that the legal team of Twitter was accused of violating a confidentiality agreement or revealing that the size of the sample for verification of the platform on bots (automated accounts) and false accounts was from profiles.
“The legal department of Twitter just contacted me to claim that I violated a confidentiality agreement to reveal that the size of the bot verification sample is of cem profiles!” Musk, CEO of electric car manufacturer Tesla, tweeted.
On Sexta-Feira (13), Musk wrote that he agreed to US$ 44 billion (R$ 224.7 billion) to make Twitter a dated company that was temporarily suspended while awaiting data on the size of false accounts on the platform.
He said that his team would test a random sample of Twitter followers to identify the bots. His response to a question motivated the company’s accusation.
When a user asked Musk for details on the bot account filtering process, the billionaire replied: “I chose it as the number of the size it shows, because that is what Twitter uses to calculate <5% false /spam/duplicate”.
Musk tweeted at dawn this Sunday (15) that he has not yet seen any analysis that shows that the social media company has less than 5% of false accounts.
Later, he stated that “there is some chance of more than 90% being active daily users.”
