He said his team would test “a random sample of 100 followers” on Twitter to identify bots. His response to a question sparked the accusation from Twitter.
When one user asked Musk to “specify the process for filtering bot accounts,” he replied, “I chose 100 as the number of samples because that’s what Twitter uses to calculate <5% fake/spam/duplicate".
Musk tweeted in the early hours of Sunday that he had yet to see “any” analytics showing the social media company had less than 5% fake accounts.
He later said that “chances are it’s over 90% daily active users”.
