Elon Musk shuts down Twitter crypto spam bots

Altcoin news, News

Elon Musk’s recent action to delete crypto spam bots on Twitter has been met with widespread approval in the cryptocurrency community. As a consequence of Elon Musk’s most recent onslaught in his campaign against cryptocurrency spam bots on Twitter, the cryptocurrency community has noticed a significant decrease in the number of bots replying to their tweets. Musk’s campaign began earlier this month.

In a tweet he published on December 11, Musk dropped a hint that “bots are in for a surprise tomorrow.” Later on, he said that the website will be banning the IP addresses of “known bad actors” after discovering a small group of people who were responsible for a significant number of bot and troll accounts.

He said that Twitter would “take them down as soon as they appear up” despite the fact that fraudsters may use a variety of different tactics in order to get past the IP address limitation.

When asked about the topic, Ethereum Co-founder Vitalik Buterin said that although “Twitter appears to be somewhat easier to use recently,” he was unable to determine whether or not this improvement was the result of Musk’s move to reduce the number of bots on the platform. He indicated that he had no clue how to differentiate between the work that Elon had done, Crypto-Winter, and the alterations that were conceived by his own brain. He blamed Elon for everything.

A significant number of users of Twitter have claimed that bot answers are still visible on postings, despite the fact that the network swiftly deletes them.

Musk also dropped a clue in his most recent tweet that the corporation has future intentions to prosecute fraudsters on Twitter, but he did not disclose any other details about these plans.
