Elon Musk, who has been bringing significant changes in the functionality of Twitter for some time, has said that it is ok to have verified bot accounts to address advanced AI bot swarms taking over.
Having Twitter for $44 billion, Elon Musk has been introducing a new term and functionality to the social media site with each passing day. The Twitter CEO is now up with a new strategy to address advanced AI bot swarms taking over. He says it is fine to have verified bot accounts, which will be eligible to be in ‘For You’ recommendations.
Elon Musk tweeted on March 27, “Given that modern AI can solve any “prove you’re not a robot” tests, it’s now trivial to spin up 100k human-like bots for less than a penny per account. Paid verification increases bot cost by ~10,000% & makes it much easier to identify bots by phone & CC clustering. Obvious conclusion: paid account social media will be the only social media that matters.” “Starting April 15th, only verified accounts will be eligible to be in For You recommendations. The is the only realistic way to address advanced AI bot swarms taking over. It is otherwise a hopeless losing battle. Voting in polls will require verification for same reason,” tweeted Elon Musk, adding, “That said, it’s ok to have verified bot accounts if they follow terms of service & don’t impersonate a human.”
