Esson Musk, CEO SpaceX and Tesla, asked the creator of Dogecoin, Jackson Palmer, to assist him fight “vexatious” Crypto scammers and swindlers on Twitter in  a tweet, September 17.


Saying Jackson in his tweet, Elon
wrote


“@ummjackson if you can help get rid of the annoying scam spammers, that would be much appreciated.” 


Jackson
replied instantly, urging Elon to contact him using direct messages. Jackson halsened to send Elon the script that could fight the puzzling problem: 


“If you DM me (your DMs aren’t open), I’ll send you the script – it’s short, simple and you just run it with cron somewhere.” 

Instant Reply for the Quick Solution 


It seems that Elon didn’t take a lot of time to respond, as in a few minutes Jackson
tweeted an update: 


“Update: Elon has the script… we had a good chat on how @jack and the Twitter team should definitely automate and fix this problem on their end though.” 


Way go in July this year, a tweet by Elon apparently alluded that the billionaire CEO is gratified by scam bots personifying popular people on Twitter Elon Musk inclusive, in an attempt to illegally swindle Ethereum and other bullish Cryptos. He then wrote: 


“I want to know who is running the Ethereum scambots! Mad skillz.” 

Rampant Impersonations 


Elon isn’t the only public eye to have been personified by scam bots. Several scam accounts on Twitter have struggled to stand as Charlie Lee, a Litecoin founder while others still personified Pavel Durov, CEO and founder of Telegram


Recently, Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, insinuated that Twitter might apply Blockchain tech to fight misinformation and the escalating scams on its platform.


In spite of Jackson Palmer getting a name-drop from Elon Musk, the price of Dogecoin and its capitalisation have stayed somewhat more of the same over the past one day (24-hours), as per
CoinMarketCap data. Earlier September was a boom for the coin, Dogecoin also registered a significant increase since Thursday August 30, at one particular point upswinging by 135% in just only 3 days.
