Twitter's CEO: External spam account analysis not possible

Twitter Inc. CEO Parag Agrawal stated on Monday that an external estimation of the number of spam accounts on the platform is not possible. On the contrary, both "public and private information" are needed.

"We are strongly incentivized to detect and remove as much spam as we possibly can every single day. Anyone who suggests otherwise is just wrong," said Agrawal in a statement on Twitter. Besides, he also claimed that the company cancels "over half a million spam accounts every day" while estimating that less than 5% of reported monetizable Daily Active Users (mDAU) by the tech giant are spam accounts.

Although Tesla's CEO Elon Musk has already stated that he is committed to the deal, he has previously expressed doubts due to the alleged presence of spam and fake accounts on the social media platform.
