Hacked verified Twitter accounts continue to spam Elon Musk

Despite being called out by Twitter for her looks lack of interest in doing something Speaking of bots, Elon Musk continues to be spammed by hacked verified accounts and unverified accounts sharing links to crypto scams.

As Elon Musk shared an update on Tesla latest version of FSD Beta, his account was heavily spammed by crypto scam accounts like a bot. Many of these accounts are actually bots, but some are hacked verified Twitter accounts.

Just five days ago, Elon compared Twitter’s efforts to issue subpoenas with its efforts to suppress bots and spam. Although critics swear that Elon is trying to back out of the Twitter deal for various non-issue reasons, he has actually been consistent with his reason. Twitter has a bot problem and, in my opinion, doesn’t care.

Twitter user @cb_doge, who shared the screenshot in the tweet above, underline that advertisers are paying to run ads for bots and that Twitter is unwilling to address the issue. According to SingleGrainTwitter’s average cost per million is around $3.50, compared to $0.59 for Facebook.

With Facebook, you have to spend more money to get the same kind of engagement and click-through rate as Twitter, he said. Here’s the thing, if it’s bots tracking click-through rates and visiting websites from Twitter ads, that’s not a good thing. It is actually a waste of money.

According to an opinion of elders FBI Special Agent and now Global Intelligence Manager at F5 Dan Woods, more than 80% of Twitter accounts are bots. It’s not good for advertisers, especially small businesses.

Advertisers want their target market to be reached. That’s the whole point of advertising. If I post an ad for my jewelry, I don’t want my money spent on bots clicking the link. Bots won’t buy from me.

In my opinion, you have a better chance of getting more exposure for your website on TikTok than paying for ads, especially if the social network is full of bots. Personally, I prefer TikTok to Facebook and Instagram in terms of advertising and I’ve never used Twitter.

Perhaps the reason Twitter doesn’t want to solve the bot and spam problem is because it makes money from advertising. This statement is just one of my theories, but it makes sense. Twitter could easily prove me wrong by solving the problem of bots and crypto scams. I would be happy with that.
