Slightly related - Twitter still hasn't done anything about those bot accounts with fake crypto scams. Elon Musks tweets for example always have these fake crypto scam tweets at the very top often using account names of popular people. I think it's been going on for almost 2 years now if I remember right. This should be such a simply thing to take care of but for some reason, Twitter hasn't bothered.

I would love to know how many people actually fell for that. People who own bitcoin isn't your normal crowd but recent surges in the scams and hype, may have created a lot of people who are oblivious as to what bitcoin technically is but talk and broadcast it everywhere along with having invested a lot.
