Tech guru and billionaire, Elon Musk is in a deadlock with Jackson Palmer, co-founder of Dogecoin (DOGE) over a tweet from Palmer that Musk could remove Twitter bots via a simple coding technique, and also implied Musk has no technical knowledge of coding.
The argument between the two DOGE parents surfaced on social media two days after Musk agreed and announced to accept DOGE as a channel to pay for merchandise for his company SpaceX, a space exploration company.
In an interview, Palmer expressed that his coding script can automatically detect, reply to, and block spam and bot accounts on Twitter, and could thus be used to forewarn users about the danger of bots. Later in the interview, Palmer appeared to make statements claiming that the new Twitter CEO, Elon Musk, is insufficient for the task of running Twitter and lacks the technical knowledge to be effective at implementing change.
Palmer, adding insult to injury, called Musk a con artist, implying that Musks sells visions, plans, and promises without any intention of following through on them in the long run. Some also speculated that Palmer might have resentments for the crypto industry at large, as he called it a “cartel” of wealth.
Clearly insulted by Palmer’s comments, on Tuesday Musk lashed out at Palmer on Twitter. Musk stated that Palmer’s code could not deliver on its promise to automatically detect and reply to scam tweets. He further taunted Palmer, asking him to make his script public if he is so confident, and thereby opening his script to greater scrutiny. However, Palmer expressed that after Elon Musk’s deal to buy Twitter on May 17, Musk’s every move has done nothing but drag the company (Twitter) to the ground rather than successfully acquire and improve it.
Despite the spat between these two major players of the crypto scene, investors in the altcoin are yet to give a response, as it is down 1.9% since the time of writing. It is yet to be seen if this will impact the coin further.
