Twitter is one of the most popular social networks in the world, being the platform where news, debates and opinions flow faster and more dynamically. However, like any other service of the kind, this social network is also full of fake profiles that end up ‘contaminating’ the social space and ‘annoying’ users with real accounts who are more active.

But it seems that the company is aware of this phenomenon, in the sense of taking measures against this situation. And according to the latest information, Twitter reported that, per day, it removes more than 1 million spam accounts from the social network.




Twitter deletes 1 million spam accounts daily

According to the information provided by the agency Reuters, the social network Twitter removes more than 1 million spam accounts every day. The data was revealed by the platform's executives to journalists during a meeting held this Thursday (7). In that same meeting, the executives tried to show the company's efforts in the fight against automatic bots, which contaminate and condition the proper functioning of the social network and the experience of real users.

The meeting comes at a time when millionaire Elon Musk has threatened to suspend the agreement outlined for the purchase of Twitter, unless the company proves that spam bots on the platform represent less than 5% of total users on the social network. .

In this sense, in an online conference, the company reinforced that existing spam accounts on the service are well below 5%. So now it remains to wait for Elon Musk's reaction, in order to understand whether or not he will continue the business of buying the social network.

Already in another news that we recently released, it is indicated that the CEO of Tesla should have full access to the more than 500 million tweets that are published every day.
