Elon Musk said on Monday that only verified Twitter accounts would be eligible to vote in elections starting April 15, a move the social media company’s CEO believes advanced AI bots will address.
Musk also said that only verified accounts would be eligible in Twitter’s For You Recommendations, which display a stream of tweets from accounts on Twitter.
Starting April 15th, only verified accounts will be eligible to be included in Recommendations for you.
Advanced AI is the only realistic way to handle bot swarms. It’s a hopeless losing battle otherwise.
Voting in elections would require verification for the same reason.

Twitter did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
Last year, Musk said that Twitter would restrict voting on policy-related polls to paying Blue customers.
