The impression about Twitter is that it drags it's feet in fighting bots and fake accounts. Possible reasons? Fake bots may inflate advertising revenues and may help Twitter mask declining use, thereby forestalling a drop in stock price should the true metrics of users and advertising CPMs be revealed.
