Oh the irony….
(SKY NEWS) Elon Musk has expressed support for receiving a discount on his Twitter bid equal to the percentage of users who are spam bots.
The billionaire, who claims to be spending less than 5% of his time on the $44bn takeover, has made a number of comments in recent weeks criticising Twitter and its management team.
Mr Musk recently said the acquisition was temporarily on hold as he wanted to confirm the company’s own figures that accounts not operated by real humans represented less than 5% of users.
Responding to the suggestion that “if 25% of the users are bots then the Twitter acquisition deal should cost 25% less” he wrote: “Absolutely.”
