Dogecoin [DOGE]’s Jackson Palmer and Elon Musk team up against spam bots, blows up Twitter

Dogecoin [DOGE] has proven time and again that it has come a long way from being a meme cryptocurrency with even Elon Musk, Tesla’s billionaire CEO, reaching out to Jackson Palmer, the creator of Dogecoin. Musk has been creating ripples in the Twitter space with his complaints about Twitter spam bots hogging the comments section and pushing down legitimate feedback, a concern he raised with Jackson Palmer.

To users’ delight, Palmer responded to Musk’s tweet by saying:

“If you DM me (your DMs aren’t open), I’ll send you the script – it’s short, simple and you just run it with cron somewhere.”

Jackson Palmer quickly followed up his tweet by stating that Elon Musk had received the code script and the two had discussed how Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter, can work on fixing the spam bot issue.

The interaction between the two tech visionaries has stirred up the cryptosphere with many users also joining the thread.

Barbara.C Benedict, a Twitter user commented:

“Why doesn’t Twitter have something where their system authenticates the given IP(s) for any new account using the identical *image* of the celeb. The image is what the readers are falling for mostly. :/ (I’m a volunteer fake Elon Tweet cop.)”

Monopoly, another Twitter user stated:

“Glad to see you two connecting! @ummjackson has a working twitter bot banning, reporting script. @elonmusk, the #crypto universe has some of the biggest brain power in tech space. Minus the 97% of people just yelling moon and hodl.”

This is not the first time that Elon Musk has publicly raised a complaint against spam bots, with the Tesla CEO’s past complaint being directly related to Ethereum [ETH]. Musk raised the red flag when his impersonators on Twitter claimed to send back 10 times the amount of Ethereum [ETH] sent to them.

Elon Musk is not the first high profile Twitterati to call out the spam bots as Vitalik Buterin, the Co-Founder of Ethereum had also complained about the prevalent bots’ intrusion on Twitter handles related to cryptocurrency. Buterin referred to scams that popped up on tweets that promised the giveaways of hundreds of tokens after the completion of a certain task.

Things came to a head when almost all cryptocurrency related posts were followed by statements like “send 0.5 ETH to get 5 ETH”. This had forced Buterin to change his twitter handle to Vitalik “Not giving away ETH” Buterin.

CryptoD, a Twitter user had commented:

“It’s old tactic for scammers those who’s smart enough to detect typo are anyway not going to fall for them so they don’t have to spend resources. Same tactic used by scammers when they send Nigerian prince mail with wrong grammar so that smart people don’t contact them.”
