Zhao, who was the victim of a bot attack, added his thoughts to the conversation and stated that Twitter has to make eliminating bots a top priority.
The CEO of Binance posted a video of his impersonators swamping a discussion. Zhao added that he did not remark on the thread he showed if it was not evident to anyone.

The removal of fraudulent bot armies from the social media network will be one of billionaire Elon Musk’s top goals if he successfully acquires Twitter, he stated in an April talk. Musk claims that bots are making the site “far worse,” bringing attention to the problem.
