Elon Musk in his tweet asked Twitter bots to attack him.

In the Twitter thread, Elon mentioned that the bots are unable to swarm to the top of his replies.

Reacting to it, DOGE creator Billy Markus tweeted that he made a test post and instead of seeing 50 bot replies he only saw one.

Responding to it, Elon said, “we’re shutting them down as soon as they show up”.

Also, he said that Twitter will also be moving to prosecute scammers anywhere on Earth.

Ethereum Co-founder Vitalik Buterin replied to a Twitter user who asked him about Twitter bots.

He said that Twitter seems to be marginally better to use lately, but he is unsure about the reason.
