Yep, looks like a totes legit Twitter account. Not a bot at all.

Glad that my bot can contribute to the numbers

The thing is, even if Twitter's assessment is accurate and less than 5% of accounts are bots/spam, that's still up to 16.5 million active bot/spam accounts, given the current estimate of 330M active Twitter users.  That's still a mind-bogglingly ridiculous number.  I mean, if an average of 1 in 20 people you see on the street was actually an android, you wouldn't trust that a single person you meet is real.

Also, there's the whole 80/20 rule. If the bots are among the most active accounts on Twitter, and because they don't require food or sleep they probably are, they're a disproportionate part of every user's experience.

Well, that's just ridiculous, of course they aren't.  I mean, I don't think they are.  How could they be?  Right?  No, no, they're definitely not.  I mean, I haven't heard anyone start talking wistfully about glittering C-beams or the Tanhauser Gate.  Well, recently anyway.

Shiat.  We're gonna need Deckard, aren't we?

This is sounding more and more like "tell me all your secrets so I can pump and dump your stock, trash you, and create a competitor."

This is just Elon trying to back out of deal bc he sobered up and realized how dumb it was.

Twitter is barely profitable and he's paying a premium for it.

This whole thing was a stunt
