Twitter suspends AI bot linked to memecoin after Elon Musk’s scam crypto allegation.

Twitter has suspended the account of “Explain This Bob,” a popular bot powered by artificial intelligence and linked to memecoin. This happened after Elon Musk accused it of being a “scam crypto account.” On June 18, Musk tweeted that the account looked like a scam, and it was suspended soon after. The bot had over 400,000 followers before the suspension. It was created by Prabhu Biswal from India and used OpenAI’s GPT-4 model to comprehend and provide responses to tweets. The bot was linked to the ERC-20 memecoin Bob Token (BOB), which was launched in April. The suspension caused the price of BOB to drop over 30%. Previously, Musk had tweeted “I love Bob” in response to one of the bot’s tweets. Observers believe that Musk is of the view that Explain This Bob is being used as a marketing tactic to prop up BOB’s price. Since the suspension, the hashtag “FREEBOB” has circulated on Crypto Twitter. Many believe that BOB isn’t a scam coin and the suspension is unwarranted, as the launch of the token was “fair” and BOB is “fully decentralized” with a 0% tax mechanism. Twitter has not taken action against the account for Bob Token. The team of the project responded humorously to the news of the suspension, sharing a meme of Musk monitoring a distraught “Bob” in a prison. Cointelegraph contacted Biswal and Twitter for comment but did not receive an immediate response.
