Trump believes Elon Musk will back out of his Twitter deal
Elon Musk has spoken in public recently to declare that the purchase of Twitter has not yet been finalised. He was worried about the sheer amount of bots and false accounts he would have to remove from the network. Due to the rapid rate at which phoney accounts are generated on a daily basis.
In fact, with his new platform, ‘Truth Social,’ the former president has run into this very issue. It has been described as a “bot conservative ghost town” by a number of writers and investigators.
Donald Trump came to Truth Social to discuss Elon Musk’s refusal to purchase Twitter using his comments. His extensive essay explained why he thinks this would happen, but he also used the opportunity to promote his own platform.
Trump explained: “There is no way Elon Musk is going to buy Twitter at such a ridiculous price, especially since realizing it is a company largely based on BOTS or Spam Accounts. ake anyone? By the time you get rid of them, if that can even be done, what do you have? Not much? Just my opinion, but Truth Social is MUCH better than Twitter and is absolutely exploding, incredible engagement.”
Elon can still back out of the deal, but he’ll pay a high price for it in the long run. Musk has been doing his own investigation of Twitter’s bots, and he has asked other Twitter users to do the same. According to him, there are at least 5% of all users that are either automated or phoney.
However, as he stated, Twitter’s legal team informed him that he had breached an NDA by disclosing the technique he used to detect fraudulent accounts. Incredibly, Musk couldn’t believe what he was seeing. Even more compelling evidence why Twitter is a bad investment.
