Following an internal review, Twitter told Musk that bot accounts make up less than 5% of its users.

“The Twitter agreement is temporarily suspended pending details supporting the calculation that spam/fake accounts indeed represent less than 5% of users,” Musk tweeted.

“To find out, my team will do a random sample of 100 @twitter followers. I invite others to repeat the same process and see what they find out,” he tweeted, when someone on the platform asked Musk to “elaborate a bit on the process.”

“Any reasonable random sampling process is fine. If many people independently get similar results for % fake/spam/duplicate counts, that will be telling. I chose 100 as the number of samples because that’s what Twitter uses to calculate <5% fake/spam/duplicate,” Musk replied.

The next day, Musk shared the alleged NDA violation.

Musk often criticizes the platform and once told users they were “manipulated” by its algorithm in ways they “don’t realize”.
