Elon Musk On Random Sample of 100 Twitter Followers' To See How Many Are Bots...

Tesla CEO Elon Musk and his team are preparing their own audit of 100 Twitter followers to check how many are bots and spam accounts. 

Earlier, citing a week-old regulatory filing from Twitter, Musk claimed that he wanted to pause the deal to verify that false or spam accounts represented fewer than 5 per cent of the company's 229 million users during the first quarter.

Musk tweeted Thursday his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter was on hold as he investigates the company's internal audit.
