The cryptocurrency community on Twitter has called out the Twitter bots endlessly spamming threads, highlighting the issue to the social platform and urging it to take action.

Twitter has always been a popular go-to platform for the crypto community to discuss updates in the crypto world, as well as for major crypto exchanges, platforms, and businesses to drop announcements and connect with their users.

However, productive conversations are consistently interrupted by bots flooding comments with “why is no one talking about this?” The spam usually redirects to a sketchy link or a scam platform.

The crypto community on Twitter expressed their fury through a series of sarcastic tweets.

Crypto analyst Lark Davis pretended to be the Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao and shared a screenshot tagging Twitter. He captioned the post calling Twitter threads a “bot wasteland.”

Zhao even responded stating that solving the bot problem should be one of Twitter’s priority tasks. Furthermore, he posted a video displaying his impersonators spamming another Twitter thread. Zhao clarified to his followers in case they misunderstood that the person flooding the threads is in fact not the Binance CEO.

In addition, crypto trader Scott Melker tweeted the bots’ words in quotes, while another artist transformed the scam tweets into digital art.

During Elon Musk’s talk on his intention to purchase Twitter, back in April, he expressed that one of his top priorities for the social media platform is to get rid of the scam bot, highlighting the issue by saying that the bot armies are making the problems “much worse.”

Moreover, a cybersecurity analyst published a thread on August 21, helping new cryptocurrency community members to differentiate between legitimate and illegitimate accounts, helping them prevent getting scammed.
