Centibillionaires Elon Musk, chief of Tesla, SpaceX, and a few other companies, has reacted to a tweet by Dogecoin’s co-founder about crypto scam bots.

Elon Musk promises to deal with crypto scam bots
Lately, Elon musk has several times introduced Twitter discussions about crypto scam bots that have been encroaching the Twitter space. One of the problems Musk said he would solve when he buys Twitter and takes it private is to get rid of these fake accounts.
However, the “when” has recently become an “if” since Musk put the Twitter acquisition deal on hold.
As stated by Elon Musk, 90% of Twitter customers could be scam bots. So now he is waiting for confirmation that these comprise not more than just five percent of all Twitter user-base.
Notwithstanding, as covered earlier this week by a high-profile Twitter executive Vijaya Gadde, there is “no such thing as a deal being on hold,” and everything in this one is going as planned with Elon Musk.
How DOGE could be used against scam bots: Musk, M. Cuban
In early May, Musk supported the idea of leveraging Dogecoin for fighting crypto scam bots on Twitter suggested by a billionaire, investor, and DOGE fan Mark Cuban.
Cuban, whose Dallas Mavericks basketball team sells tickets and merchandise for DOGE in their online store, suggested that it would be a good idea to get every Twitter user to put up 1 Dogecoin for unlimited posts.
This way, real users, humans, would be able to receive DOGE paid by bots after contesting her post.
