As Elon Musk delays a possible purchase of Twitter based on questions of company truthfulness (real users vs. bots), America’s trusted truth-teller James O’Keefe Monday released undercover video of a Twitter Sr. Engineer who downloaded with what employees think of their own organization, Musk and American Values.
“Musk said in a tweet to the platform that his offer was based on ‘Twitter’s SEC filings being accurate,’ and that he believes the platform could have 20 percent bots ‘or much higher,'” which Breitbart.com reported (click here for more). Twitter leadership claims only 5 percent of their traffic are bots and Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal recently tweeted the company doesn’t believe that the number of bot accounts on the platform can be accurately measured.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk replied with a poop emoji. Tulsa Today sides with Musk in distrust of Twitter, awaits credible documentation on traffic and would add that if bot (fake) traffic is a great as suspected – Twitter could be guilty of false advertising if not organized criminal fraud.
Corporate honesty aside, the undercover video from Veritas documents:
- Siru Murugesan, Twitter Senior Engineer: “Twitter does not believe in free speech… Elon believes in free speech.”
- Murugesan: “Our jobs are at stake, he [Elon Musk] is a capitalist and we weren’t really operating as capitalists, more like very socialist. Like we’re all like commie as f*ck.”
- Murugesan on Twitter offering equal access to both parties: “I don’t know if two parties can truly coexist on one platform.”
- Murugesan on how Twitter employees are dealing with the changes at Twitter: “They’re like, ‘this would be my last day if it happens…’ a lot has changed. Like, we’re stress eating a lot. Like, we’re all worried for our jobs.”
