Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla asked Jackson Palmer, the founder of Dogecoin, to help him fight annoying cryptocurrency scammers on Twitter as per a tweet on Monday.

Mentioning Palmer in his tweet, Musk commented if Palmer can help get rid of the annoying scam spammers, that would be much appreciated.
Palmer responded almost instantly, suggesting Musk to reach out to him using direct messages. Palmer promised to send Musk the script that might solve the problem. He commented if Musk DMs him (as Musk's DMs aren't open), he'll send him the script - it's short, uncomplicated and he just needs to run it with cron somewhere.

It seems that Musk did not take long to reply, as after a few minutes Palmer tweeted an update that Elon has the script. They had a good chat on how @jack and the Twitter team should certainly automate and fix this problem on their end.
Earlier in the month of July, a tweet by Elon Musk apparently revealed that the billionaire CEO is amused by scam bots imitating popular personalities on Twitter - including Musk himself - as a tactic to purloin Ethereum and a number of other cryptocurrencies. He then posted that he wants to know who is running the Ethereum spambots called Mad Skillz.

It is to be noted that Musk is not the only popular public figure to have been imitated by scam bots. As per media reports in the month of January 2018, multiple scam accounts on Twitter have tried to pose as Litecoin founder Charlie Lee, while others still imitated the CEO and founder of Telegram Pavel Durov.

CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey gave indications that Twitter might use blockchain technology for fighting scams and misinformation on its platform, as per reports in the month of September.

According to CoinMarketCap data, the price and market capitalization of Dogecoin have remained pretty much the same over the past 24 hours despite Jackson Palmer receiving a name-drop from the founder of Tesla and SpaceX. At the time of reporting, Dogecoin retains its position among the top 20 cryptocurrencies, with a total market cap of greater than $716 million. However, it is down by 2.47 percent in the last 24 hours.
