Elon Musk wants everyone on Twitter to get verified or leave the social media platform.
Musk said on Monday that only verified Twitter accounts would be eligible to vote in polls starting April 15, a move that the social media company’s CEO believes will address advanced AI bot swarms.
He Tweeted: “Starting April 15th, only verified accounts will be eligible to be in For You recommendations. This 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 the same reason. That said, it’s ok to have verified bot accounts if they follow terms of service & don’t impersonate a human”
Musk also said only verified accounts will be eligible to be in Twitter For You recommendations, which displays a stream of tweets from accounts on Twitter.
The platform is yet to issue a statement following the big boss’s tweet or his tweet is official.
