Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, recently tweeted his frustration that most of his comments are made by cryptocurrency bots.
He included a screenshot that purportedly shows many accounts pretending to be Binance’s CEO Changpeng Zhao.
As a response to Musk’s criticism, the actual CZ quipped that only his tweet counts. The billionaire’s tweet is not unrelated to the heated legal dispute he is now engaged in with Twitter.
In June, the board of directors of Twitter authorized Musk’s offer to buy the dominant social media platform for $44 billion.
The Tesla CEO eventually decided to back out of the hefty agreement in July, alleging that the social media behemoth had misreported the amount of spam bots.
Then, in an effort to uphold the original merger deal, Twitter sued Musk.
Trial between the two parties is anticipated to begin in October.

Musk formally requested that the trial be postponed for at least one month in response to current claims made by whistleblower Peiter Zatko.
Tesla’s CEO has countersued the dominant social media platform, charging it with fraud.
Musk would frequently mention Twitter’s cryptocurrency scam issue prior to his legal dispute with the company.
Since the centibillionaire first raised the issue of Ethereum spambots in 2018, the issue has persisted.
