The number of Elon Musk followers has risen to 90 million since the acquisition of Twitter. But half of it turned out to be fake accounts.
Elon Musk, founder of Tesla, bought popular social networking site Twitter for $ 44 million. It is said to have gained about 6 million additional followers on Twitter since then.
Before buying Twitter, his followers were around 84 million and now they have touched almost 90 million. However, one report states that half of his followers are liars.
According to the Times report, Twitter censorship tool “Spartador” claims that 48 percent of Elon Musk’s followers are fake. The report cited several accounts following him as spam bots.
If our twitter bid succeeds, we will defeat the spam bots or die trying!

This is one of the issues that Elon Musk wanted to solve after his acquisition of Twitter. Elon Musk once said that spam bots are a very annoying problem on Twitter.
“I want to make Twitter better than ever by improving the product with new features, creating ways to increase trust, defeating spam bots and recognizing all human beings,” he said in a tweet.
