Charles Hoskinson Says How Fake Vitalik Accounts Do Not Violate Twitter Policy

Hoskinson urges Elon Musk to do a major overhaul as he expresses frustration over poor bot control.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Cardano chief Charles Hoskinson expressed frustration with Twitter’s bot control, sharing an email that surmised that fake verified Vitalik Buterin Twitter accounts carrying out giveaway scams do not violate its policies.

Hoskinson believes Elon Musk should embark on a major overhaul of the bot control staff when he takes over.

“So fake vitalik verified accounts running giveaway scams apparently don’t violate twitter policy,” tweeted Hoskinson. “can’t wait for @elonmusk to terminate every single person responsible for this pathetic bot control. Quit and never work in technology again.”

It is not the first time the Cardano chief has highlighted the prevalence of bots on the platform. Last month, Hoskinson did so by sharing a screenshot of a fake Vitalik account following him, asserting that the Ethereum founder will never do so, calling it the “greatest evidence” of bots on Twitter.

Notably, eradicating bots was one of the major reasons the Cardano founder threw his weight behind the Elon Musk deal to buy Twitter early this year. Moreover, Hoskinson offered to help the Tesla chief build a decentralized platform if Twitter turned the deal down.

However, Musk himself abandoned the deal asserting that the microblogging platform had been dishonest about the number of bots on it. In the fallout, Twitter dragged Musk to the Delaware Court of Chancery in hopes of forcing the deal.

Nonetheless, as The Crypto Basic reported on Tuesday, it appears that at the behest of his lawyers, Musk will pursue the deal again. Per the letter to Twitter via his lawyers, Musk offers to purchase the platform at the original offering price of $54.20 per share. However, Twitter must agree to pursue a dismissal of the case on or before the resolution of the deal.
