Elon Musk achieves the 100 million-follower mark on Twitter
Elon Musk, a billionaire, now has more than 100 million Twitter followers.
The Tesla CEO has not tweeted in more than a week, despite posting often and getting retweeted for weeks.
According to social media monitoring service SocialBlade, Musk reached the milestone between Sunday and Monday.
He is in the process of purchasing Twitter right now.
The $44 billion arrangement ran into trouble when Musk threatened to back out of it over platform bots.
In addition to disputing Twitter’s internal estimate that less than 5% of its users are spam and fraudulent accounts, Musk asserted that the business had violated its commitments by “actively fighting and blocking” his entitlement to information on the spam and fraudulent account data, they violated the merger agreement.
Insider revealed last week that Musk’s legal team had written to Twitter’s board after supplying the original data, complaining that it was “not acceptable.”
The team behind Elon Musk claims that fresh data from Twitter, including real-time API information, will enable them to independently analyze the proportion of spam and bogus accounts.
How many of Musk’s own supporters are false is still a mystery.
His final tweets were sent on June 21, and Axios pointed out that just a few days previously, SpaceX employees had released an open letter calling his tweets a “regular source of distraction and shame.”
