Texas AG Ken Paxton Initiates Investigation Into Twitter


The NPCs are distorting our reality and socially conditioning large numbers of Americans…

I am sure we have all been here, coming across some errant left-wing, establishment shill on Twitter and correcting them through a lengthy tirade at 3 A.M., only to discover later that they aren’t even real—we’ve been arguing with a bot!

Spam and automated bot accounts are a massive problem on Twitter, so much so that the prevalence of these accounts is now endangering the Musk buyout offer despite Twitter’s board of directors recently recommending Musk’s deal to investors.

Musk has gone on record claiming that the number of automated bots could fall anywhere between 20-90%…

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has taken notice and has announced an investigation into the social media giant for potentially misleading the public on the number of automated bots the site hosts:

Fox Business offered this statement from Paxton’s office:

“A large number of bot accounts not only reduces users’ experience on the platform, but may also inflate the value of the company and the costs of doing business with it, thus directly harming consumers and businesses – specifically, Texas consumers and businesses,” Paxton’s office said in a statement shared with FOX Business.


Texas Scorecard writes:

Twitter estimates that a mere 5 percent of active accounts are bots. However, Musk—who announced his intention to buy Twitter in April—is threatening to terminate his agreement to buy Twitter if this information is false.

Elon himself said on a recent podcast that his “lowest estimate” for how many Twitter bots there are “would be probably 20 percent.”
