At “The All In Summit 2022,” Elon Musk didn’t give the impression that he felt this way about his Twitter deal.
He said a deal with a lower price tag is not “ruled out,” according to Bloomberg.
“I am currently being told that it is simply impossible to know the number of bots … It is as unrecognizable as the human soul,” Musk said at a conference in Miami in a video on social media, Bloomberg added.
For the past few days, Elon Musk has publicly spoken out about his bid to buy Twitter for about $ 44 billion as technology stocks have fallen.
It started on Friday morning when he tweeted that the deal was temporarily “delayed” and then he was “still committed” to the purchase. That evening, he said his team would check how many spam bots in 100 accounts.
This seemed to provoke a reaction from stakeholders on Twitter.
Musk also said Friday night’s 100 accounts are the sample size used by Twitter, and then Musk said on Saturday that Twitter’s law firm said it had violated the NDA by disclosing it.
Twitter CEO Parag Agarovl said on Monday in the topic that just no one can conduct a test spam bot with 100 accounts, and Musk responded to the topic with smileys.
Twitter has long reported that the number of spam accounts is 5%, said Variety.
Musk had previously spoken of problems with spam or bot accounts on Twitter, but Wedbush analyst Dan Ives said Musk spoke of spam bots as an explanation in the style of “dog ate homework” to withdraw from the purchase or negotiate a price.
“The enormous pressure on Tesla shares after the deal, the change in the stock market / risk environment last month and a number of other funding factors have forced Mask to” cool off “on the deal on Twitter,” Wedbush said, as previously Insider. reported.
The bot’s idea is “not a new problem and most likely it’s more of a scapegoat to pursue a lower price,” Ives added.
As for the conference, there are also several Twitter users reported what he said about the campaign: “The more questions I ask, the more my concerns grow.” The Insider was unable to see for itself.
Musk spoke at “The All In Summit 2022” on Monday afternoon at 14:00 on ET on video, and the media was not allowed to come to the event, according to Bloomberg.
The event is a branch of the podcast of the same name, covering “all economic, technological, political, social and poker,” according to Twitter. bio.
The All In Event website promised “three days of discussions, belly laughter, poker and good wine with best friends” and included speakers such as Nate Silver, editor-in-chief of FiveThirtyEight, and Keith Rabois of the Founders Fund.
