Elon Musk claim that Twitter Inc’s legal team accused him of violating a nondisclosure agreement by revealing that the sample size for the social media platform’s automatic user checks was 100 on Saturday.
According to Elon’s revelation
Musk, the CEO of Tesla Inc., tweeted, “Twitter legal just called to complain that I broke their NDA by exposing the bot check sample size is 100!”
Musk said on Friday that his $44 billion cash plan to take the company private was “temporarily on pause” while he awaited statistics on the percentage of fake accounts on the platform.
To identify the bots, he said his team would test “a random sample of 100 followers” on Twitter. Twitter made the charge after his response to a query.
“I choose 100 as the sample size number, because that is what Twitter uses to compute 5% fake/spam/duplicate,” Musk answered when a user asked him to “elaborate on method of filtering bot accounts.”
Musk said in a tweet early Sunday that he has yet to see “any” investigation that demonstrates the social media business has less than 5% false accounts.
“There’s a potential it may be more than 90% of daily active users,” he added later.
