Bloomberg — Elon Musk spat with Twitter Inc. Chief Executive Officer Parag Agrawal about the presence of spam bots on the network,
with the company's prospective owner claiming the figure is significantly greater than recognized.
Musk, who agreed to acquire Twitter for $44 billion, said last week that the acquisition was "on pause"
until he got more information about how the business checks bot accounts.
The billionaire stated on Monday that he believes at least 20% of Twitter accounts are spam. Meanwhile, in a Twitter thread,
Agrawal stated that when evaluating everyday users, the percentage is less than 5%, as the firm has previously stated in quarterly reports.
