He explained that it is ‘pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users’. The tweet included a Reuters article saying that the platform estimated spam and fake accounts represented less than 5% of its users. This was disclosed after the deal with Musk was made.

Musk seems unconvinced though that it is just less than 5% of users. Rightfully so though, because if the number is actually higher, the value of the company would decrease.

The Tesla and SpaceX CEO has clarified that he is still committed to the acquisition. So, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens next in this saga.
