Twitter removes a million bots a day

Twitter he told the press that he removes daily one million bots per day from the platform. Double what the CEO announced Parag Agrawal, although the company continues to claim that the number of spam accounts is under 5%. A response to criticism from Elon Musk, who after the acquisition claimed that the number was much larger.

Twitter removes a million bots a day

Last May Agrawal claimed that Twitter managed to remove “over half a million spam accounts every day”. In the same interview, the CEO explained that “multiple human reviews on thousands of accounts, chosen at random, constantly over time” confirmed thathe i bot fossero less than 5%.

Ma Elon Musk disputed those numbers, after having announced the agreement for the acquisition of the social network. And he blocked the transaction. Perhaps in response to these criticisms, today Twitter reports to Reuters that the number of removed accounts rises to over one million.

It is currently unclear whether the increase is due to one new moderation strategy or by a different way of counting data: according to The Guardian, this figure includes users who cannot open an account.

However, Twitter users in the last month can report spam accounts more easily. Perhaps the increase seen in the bot calculation also depends on these policies recently revised.

We also don’t know if this new data will impact the Twitter acquisition, with Musk appearing to be moving away from the acquisition. We therefore remain alert for any news, we will keep you updated.
