Days After Elon Musk Starts Twitter Takeover – The Company Finally Admits for Years It Has Overstated Its Users

What’s Happening:

The Internet was on fire over the news that Elon Musk bought Twitter. Liberals panicked, fearing Musk will make good on his promise to turn the social giant into a free speech platform.

For years, conservatives have questioned Twitter’s community and policies. The company has long avoided transparency over how it does a number of things, including counting its user base.

Now, just days after Musk took over, the company is copping to the facts.

From Axios:

[Twitter] admitted to over-counting some monetizable daily active users between Q1 2019 and Q4 2021…

Twitter also said it accidentally over-counted the number of monetizable daily active users because of a feature that allowed people to link multiple separate accounts together in order to conveniently switch between them. It counted those two separate accounts as two users for more than three years.

Oh, how convenient. Now that Musk is taking over Twitter, it seems like the outgoing leftists who run the company are trying to sabotage him.

They are finally admitting they “over-counted” their user base. But instead of admitting that as much as 30% of its user base are fake accounts, they simply claimed it was just users with multiple accounts.

M-hm. We’re buying that Twitter.

Even if that is the only reason they over-counted the numbers, it’s still a sign of dishonesty. For two years, they were reporting high numbers than were actually there.

That was information that misled investors and advertisers. That could trigger lawsuits…

Just as someone else takes over the company. How interesting.

We know that liberals within the company have been freaking out about the Musk buyout. Some of them have made threats—eager to quit than work for the famed innovator.

Would some of them come out and admit this, just to spoil Musk’s plans? Could be.

Key Takeaways:

  • Twitter admits it was over-counting user numbers for two years.
  • The company blamed a “feature” that allowed users to link accounts.
  • This comes as Musk buys the company to take it private.
