Elon Musk Asks Dogecoin Founder For Help With Twitter Scam Spammers


Elon Musk has reached out to cryptocurrency Dogecoin founder, Jackson Palmer, for help getting rid of Twitter’s scam spammers.

Earlier in the year, Palmer tweeted that he created a simple Python script that will auto block and report fake cryptocurrency scammers replying to tweets.

The ongoing problem of twitter scammers has grown exponentially following the cryptocurrency boom of late 2017. Scammers will often make impersonation accounts of public figures which include the same display name and avatar, and try to con people into sending cryptocurrency for fake rewards and returns. All though giveaways and airdrops are a popular marketing technique in the crypto world, a legitimate giveaway will never ask you to send any currency first in order to participate.
