(Reuters) – Elon Musk on Saturday challenged Twitter Chief Executive Parag Agrawal to a public debate over the percentage of bots on the social media platform.
“Let him prove to the public that Twitter has less than 5% daily fake or spam users!” Musk said in a tweet.
He also started a survey asking users if less than 5% of daily Twitter users are fake/spam.
Twitter on Thursday rejected a claim by Musk that he was tricked into signing a $44 billion deal to buy the company.
Musk filed a lawsuit against Twitter on July 29, stepping up his legal fight against the company for its attempt to walk away from the purchase agreement.
