Elon Musk claimed on Sunday night that the Twitter team in charge of eliminating spam and bot accounts had been “a little too harsh” when suspending users and would now be instructed to “relax.”
Following a Twitter user’s complaint that a number of real accounts that commented had been suspended, “Team was a bit too intense with spam/bot suspensions. So moving to chill mode,” Musk retorted. Musk tweeted on Thursday that the site was “purging a lot of spam/scam accounts,” and users might experience a decline in the number of their followers as a result.
Musk’s six-month battle with Twitter about purchasing the platform was characterized by his problem with bogus accounts. According to Musk, the amount of spam and bot accounts on the platform was much larger than what Twitter had given to him in financial reports when he initially called off his agreement to purchase in July. According to Musk’s investigation, there were “greater than 5%” false accounts on Twitter.
In April, the billionaire CEO vowed to “destroy the spam bots or die trying” if his attempt to acquire it was successful. He said he intended to “authenticate all real humans” to the tweet.
In an interview with Reuters, Ella Irwin, the new head of trust and safety at Twitter, stated that platform safety was Musk’s top concern. Irwin emphasized that the social media platform relied more on artificial intelligence to identify and address harmful information. Because Twitter’s trust and safety team has been “decimated,” several left-wing activists’ accounts have been unjustly suspended over the past few weeks, one impacted activist told Insider. Yoel Roth and Vijaya Gadde, Irwin’s predecessors, left the team or were let go.
