Twitter bot accounts weigh on Dorsey

|By:, SA News Editor

Pressure is growing on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) CEO Jack Dorsey to step down, according to the Sunday Times, after a report from the University of Southern California and University of Indiana alleged that up to 48M of its accounts - equal to 15% of its users - were robots not people (that's nearly twice the company’s own estimate).

The news is a fresh blow to Twitter in its attempt to lure more advertisers to the platform.
