In a recent series of tweets, Tesla CEO Elon Musk expressed his agitation over increasing cyber scams and fake bots. Musk had condemned both Google and Twitter for the increasing number of trolling networks and scams on their digital platforms.
Expressing his concerns and anguish, Musk added, “Desperate times call for desperate measures.” He said that the rapid increase in the number of crypto scams on Twitter isn’t cool. He also mentioned the rising issue of troll and bot networks on the mini-blogging platform.
He further appealed to his followers to report these bot networks and scammers at the earliest as they adversely impact the public discourse, ripping people off.
‘Second Page of Google Search Results: Safest Place to Hide Deadbody’
The famed billionaire from the tech industry also slammed Google for allowing scammers to flourish on its search engine. He added that Google cannot get away with just putting scam pages several clicks rather than shutting them down completely.
He further took a dig at the popular search engine giant with his statement that the safest place to hide a corpse is the second page of Google search results.
As usual, his tweets were followed by a flood of reactions while many even went on to suggest him to start his own social media platform.
Musk – a consistent target of hackers and impersonators
Scammers abusing his popularity to con Twitter users have become constant trouble for the Tesla CEO. Furthermore, Twitter’s many attempts have failed time and again against the large network of hackers and impersonators.
For instance, despite Twitter’s many attempts to ban then, an impersonator with a fake lookalike verified account of Musk had earlier broke into his official account and promised free Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to his followers.
Moreover, Elon Musk is not the only prominent Twitter user to be targeted by similar scams. Notably, personalities from within the cryptocurrency community such as Vitalik Buterin, the founder of Ethereum, have often appealed to the platform to come up with an efficient solution to protect users from these scams.
