Pop emojis are not the most interesting way to conduct a public discussion between two high-profile people. But that’s where we are. Parag Agarwal, CEO of Twitter, a San Francisco-based microblogging site, wrote a long Twitter thread about spam content and how it affects the user experience, but in return Elon Musk greeted him with a pop emoji.
Agarwal wrote in his thread, “First of all, let me be clear: spam harms the real people experience on Twitter, and therefore can harm our business ৷ for example, we strongly encourage every day to identify and remove as much spam as possible. Anyone else would suggest otherwise.” He is wrong. ”
He added that spam is not just binary and that the most advanced spam campaigns combine integrated people and automation. The CEO of Twitter says that they compromise with the real accounts and use them to further their campaigns, making it harder for them to keep up.
He added, “The challenge is that many accounts that appear to be counterfeit – actually real people – and some spam accounts that are actually the most dangerous – and the ones that do the most harm to our users – can be fully legitimized on the surface.”
Agarwal said at the end of his thread, “Below this high-level description there are many details that are very important. We shared an overview of the guessing process with Elon a week ago and look forward to continuing the conversation with him and all of you. ”
For this, Musk goes back with a pop emoji and writes, “So how do advertisers know what they’re getting for their money? This is fundamental to Twitter’s financial health. ”
According to Forbes, Elon Musk is currently the richest man in the world with a fortune of 22 221.5 billion, most of which comes from Tesla stock. He is in the news for his $ 44 billion deal to acquire Twitter. Although his plans for the platform are not clear, he has declared himself an “independent speaker” and said there would be less restraint.
