After Twitter, Elon Musk Goes After YouTube, Says Platform Hosts Non-Stop Fraudulent Ads

After facing Twitter and its spam bots, Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and one of the richest people in the world, has expressed his discontent with Google’s video streaming platform YouTube.

The Tesla CEO criticized the YouTube service while tweeting on the microblogging site Twitter. Elon Musk even called YouTube a scammer. Musk tweeted: “YouTube seems be nonstop scam ads.”

In another tweet, Elon Musk posted a meme mocking YouTube for allegedly not cracking down on deceptive schemes.

According to a study by Omnicore, some 122 million active users on YouTube consume more than one billion hours of video per day. This makes YouTube one of the most used social media platforms and search engines in the world. It is also the second most popular search engine after Google, with more than a billion hours of visits every day. In reality, YouTube receives more search queries than the other major search engine platforms, namely Microsoft Bing, Yahoo, AOL, and Ask, combined. In another related development, openly accusing Twitter of violating the merger agreement, Elon Musk has threatened to walk out and cancel the $44 billion acquisition from the social media company for not providing the data you have requested in spam and fake accounts. Musk had demanded that Twitter provide information about his testing methodologies to support his claims that bots and fake accounts constitute less than 5% of the platform’s active user base and stop frustrating your due diligence processes. The letter Musk and his attorney sent on Monday claimed that Twitter had sought to restrict access to the information by narrowly interpreting the merger agreement, such that providing the information would fall outside the scope of Twitter’s contractual requirements. . In a separate securities filing, Twitter previously revealed that Musk had waived a due diligence clause in the deal that could have made it easier for him to back out of the deal; without it, Musk could face a more difficult escalation and the prospect of litigation.
