In a video session on Thursday Tesla CEO Elon musk suggested that twitter be better off when they identify the twitter Bot(fakebor parody account)
Thousands of Twitter employees watched as Dorsey video-called Musk from a company meeting in Houston on Thursday and asked for “some direct feedback,” as previously reported by Bloomberg.
After a moment of thought, Musk suggested that it’d be helpful if Twitter could differentiate between real and fake users.
“Is this a real person or is this a bot net or a sort of troll army or something like that?” he told Dorsey.
“Basically, how do you tell if the feedback is real or someone trying to manipulate the system, or probably real, or probably trying to manipulate the system… what do people actually want, what are people actually upset about versus manipulation of the system by various interest groups.”
Musk regularly tweets updates about his companies’ grand plans and makes strange jokes, but his Twitter use has also gotten him in some hot water — 2018 saw him calling a British cave diver “pedo guy” (resulting in a defamation case in which he was ultimately found not liable), and hinting that he might take Tesla private, which triggered an SEC lawsuit (which was settled for $20 million).
Twitter declined to comment, while Musk’s rep didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment
