In 2018, the swindlers have invented a new way of extortion of cryptocurrency from naive users. They create a Twitter account with the name of a famous personality and the tweets offer people "free" bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies. To get them, people only need to send a nominal amount to the specified purse. Of course, they get nothing, and from small contributions from crooks accumulate a considerable sum.
Most of these scams suffered Elon Musk. In July, he contacted the Creator of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, and they decided that specifies the name of the owner. To restore access to the service requires a phone number which complicates the work of scammers.
Elon is going to deal with scammers and more. This time he asked for support from the Creator of cryptocurrency Dogecoin Jackson Palmer
If you could help get rid of the annoying scum-spammers, I would be very grateful.
The Creator of Dogecoin replied that he had a special script that is able to stop the spread of fraudulent bots. It is written specifically for the program cron that executes registered tasks.
Later, Palmer informed readers that Elon Musk got the script. He noted that they discussed additional methods that can use Twitter to neutralize bots.
