May 17, 2022 (New Delhi): Tesla Chief and Billionaire Elon Musk on Monday, made a “pile of poo” emoji in response to some insights on spam accounts posted by the Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal. This comes a month after Musk finalised a deal to buy the micro-blogging website, Twitter. Actually, CEO Parag has explained the process for detection of spam accounts in a long thread: “Each human review is based on Twitter rules that define spam and platform manipulation, and uses both public and private data (eg, IP address, phone number, geolocation, client/browser signatures, what the account does when it’s active…) to make a determination on each account.”
Elon Musk has put the $44-billion Twitter deal temporarily on hold, as he seeks to know how many Twitter accounts are spam or fake before he invests in the company. Replying to Agrawal’s explanation, Musk said, “Have you tried just calling them? “Keeping with Agrawal’s tweets, the micro-blogging platform had revealed in a filing earlier this month that false or spam accounts represented fewer than 5 percent of its monetisable daily active users during the first quarter. However, Twitteratis are hilariously mocking Elon for using a obscene ‘poop’ emoji for Twitter CEO.
