Elon Musk further added that he wants to completely “defeat” the spam bots on Twitter, this problem has been stated many times by the CEO of electric car maker Tesla in recent times when he planned to buy the social media platform Twitter in April and also retweeted earlier with a “Poop emoji” over a tweet of former CEO Parag Agarwal on the internal spam bot detection process of Twitter.

After the termination of top executives, Elon Musk has not yet revealed anything about who is going to fill the vacant top positions at Twitter Inc to ensure that the company is going on the right track.

Though, he said that he plans to cut jobs, leaving the company with approximately 7,500 employees which made everyone a bit shocked and led them to worry about their job security.

Elon Musk, on Thursday also said that the ultimate goal of buying the microblogging platform Twitter is not to make money but “to try help humanity, whom I love.”.
