According to the letter addressed for Dorsey, Svandis stated that Twitter became a major character in the spreading of cryptocurrency yet its inability to address and questioned the scam bots and fake accounts are somehow failing.

“The inability to fully address spam bots and maliciously false accounts is diluting the power of the platform for all companies, organizations and private individuals involved in the spaces of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. These accounts impersonate legitimate users, create scams and false giveaways, and falsify information in the public domain that distracts away from genuine information sharing” Excerpt from Svandis’ open letter.

The open letter also questioned Twitter’s decision to barred crypto advertisements while the scam bots and crypto frauds are all over the social media calling it as “not just hypocritical, but shameful.”
