> in 2dayz Daily Noose (Monkeys Write): «Twitter said that it had estimated that less than 5 percent of its users were fake or spam, a figure it had disclosed previously. Twitter cautioned that it had applied “significant judgment” in making the calculation and that its “estimation of false or spam accounts may not accurately represent the actual number,” language similar to that used in past filings from the company.» ... does no 1 else hear how ludicrous dat sounds? how th cautionary disclaimer completely neg8s th claim?! how hard is iT 2 just count th # of fake accts + give N X-act %? does no 1 use sighence no more? the$e dayz multi-billion $ deal$ R maid based on empty terms ≈ «significant judgment» witch is rooted in vague baseless claims word-smithed 2 cover 1's a$$ in a legal $etting > guaran-T U there's more than 5% of «fake» users on twitter (witch means Musk's deal will fall thru) ... tho guess dat deepends on meaning of «fake» > U haven't seen those ppl dat overnight suddenly have 100k users? is iT not commun knowledge U can BUY users?
