Social media giant Twitter has acknowledged that nearly 14 percent of its users are bots and spam bots.
The revelation, which the company made in a file submitted to Securities and Exchange Commission of US, means that more than 23 million of company’s 271 million users are not real people.
The company said that 8.5 percent of the bots on its user base are not harmful and are even found useful in some cases.
The other five percent are spam bots, which are not useful to anyone.
