SAN FRANCISCO (The Borowitz Report)—Chaos enveloped Twitter after the social-media firm found that the Elon Musk who had provided to purchase it three weeks in the past was truly a bot.
The bid for Twitter is believed to be the biggest company takeover ever proposed by a bot, mergers-and-acquisitions consultants say.
A visibly embarrassed Parag Agrawal, the C.E.O. of Twitter, defined to reporters how the corporate was persuaded that the Elon Musk bot was truly Elon Musk.
“The bot account had a blue check, indicating that it had been verified,” Agrawal stated. “It now appears that the bot had somehow been given the blue check by another bot.”
The C.E.O. stated that Twitter was conducting a “thorough internal review of procedures” to insure that it isn’t bought by a bot sooner or later.
“The bot appeared to be an actual human being, which should’ve been our first clue that it wasn’t Elon,” he stated.
