With so many people speculating on the Twitter/Musk stuff, here is some math...
I will not comment on whether Elon or Twitter does this or that. Instead I will do some math, because that is what I like to do, when I have no clue about the legal stuff.
Stats with sauces:
According to FinancesOnline, as of 2019, Twitter had 330 million users.
And according to Daily Mail, Biden's followers are 49.3% bots.
Biden has 22.3 million followers, so here is some mathematics for you:
22.3 million Biden followers x 0.493 bot ratio / 330 million twatter users = 3.33 % of Twitter users are Biden's bots. In other words, Biden's bots account for 3.33% of the total users.
Now comes the million dollar question;
Are all the bots following Biden?
It is not unreasonable to assume that a bot would likely follow all the biggest twitter influencers. However, it is not proof either. So this could lean to both sides.
Who knows. If all bots follow Biden, and there are still the same number of users as of 2019, then there are less than 5% bots on twitter.
However, if only a certain percentage of bots follow Biden OR total twitter users have dropped significantly, then we have the opposite conclusion.
Dear mods and bots, I like you, I love you and I only have a small 41 June Call on TWTR. I am doing DD because it is fun, not because I think I will be rich off of it.
P.s. I really like you, dear mods. You really are the best people in the world
