What Elon Musk’s argument is about

The CEO of Tesla Y SpaceX has claimed that well over 20% of accounts on Twitter could be “fake/spam” and has said that its offer to acquire the company was based on Twitter’s own reporting being accurate.

He criticized Parag Agrawal, CEO of Twitter, for publicly refusing to “show proof” that less than 5% of accounts were “fake/spam” and wrote that he was “concerned that Twitter has a disincentive to reduce spam, since it reduces the perceived daily users”.

Agrawal had written a fifteen post thread denying this incentive and explaining that Twitter is actively trying to reduce spam accounts; suspending over half a million spam accounts every day and blocking millions of accounts every week that can’t pass human verification challenges.
