Elon Musk said on Saturday that some people are using micro-blogging sites.

Earlier this month, the social media platform had started the exercise to remove bots.

The billionaire responded to one follower, “I'm just talking about people running massive bot spam operations that clearly degrade the quality of content.”

He clarified that the ban on fake engagement refers to people who use bots to artificially increase their engagement.

“Boating for fake engagement,” Tesla CEO said.

The crackdown comes as a flood of porn bots has emerged over the past few months. Earlier this week, Musk announced that new X users could be charged for posting content on the micro-blogging site.

“Unfortunately, a small fee for new user write access is the only way to stop the constant onslaught of bots,” the Tesla and SpaceX CEO said.

The billionaire commented, “Current AI (and troll farms) can easily pass the 'are you a bot' question.”

He also said that Chinese short-video platform TikTok should not be banned in the US, even though such a ban could benefit the platform.

“To do so would be contrary to freedom of speech and expression. This is not what America stands for,” Musk posted.
