Twitter Bots: Michael Saylor Responds To Elon Musk Statement
Microstrategy founder Michael Saylor on Wednesday pointed to the issue of Twitter bots responding to an Elon Musk statement. Musk’s attempts to takeover Twitter were in the last few months debated widely over his criticism of the spam accounts. In fact, the Tesla CEO had once stalled the takeover deal citing issues with transparency around Twitter bots. In a latest, Michael Saylor suggested that Twitter users can be protected by resolving the issue of fake and automated accounts.
Freedom Of Speech On Twitter
From time to time, Musk has been suggesting ways to improve several aspects of the microblogging site. In a tweet on Wednesday, Elon Musk said Twitter allows for citizen journalism without any bias. Meanwhile, Musk also tweeted that he was visiting the Twitter headquarters on Wednesday. “Entering Twitter HQ – let that sink in! Meeting a lot of cool people at Twitter today!” A deal must be finalized by Friday to avoid a court trial in the pending case over the takeover.
“A beautiful thing about Twitter is how it empowers citizen journalism – people are able to disseminate news without an establishment bias.”
“Establishment Above & Bots Below”
Responding to Musk’s statement, Michael Saylor said the Twitter users need to be protected to allow freedom of speech. “We will have freedom of speech if the Twitter platform can protect the citizens from the establishment above and bots below.” Meanwhile, Musk’s visit to Twitter office could be a hint of a successful deal closure before the deadline. Reports suggested that the Tesla CEO wants to close the deal before October 28, which was the date set by a Delaware court.
Earlier this month, it was reported that Twitter locked its employee stock accounts in anticipation of a deal closure. Twitter froze equity awards accounts for employees, in a potential sign of an upcoming announcement of Musk Twitter takeover.
