Elon Musk Asks Creator of Dogecoin to Find a Solution to get rid of Twitter Scammers

Elon Musk Tweeted:
@ummjackson if you can help get rid of the annoying scam spammers, that would be much appreciated

Jackson replied to the tweet saying he has a short, simple script which could run with cron (which is a process that runs periodically on a Unix system).
If you DM me (your DMs aren’t open), I’ll send you the script – it’s short, simple and you just run it with cron somewhere.
After which he tweeted saying that he and Elon had a good chat on how Jack (CEO of Twitter) and the team should automate and fix.
Update: Elon has the script… we had a good chat on how
@jack and the Twitter team should definitely automate and fix this problem on their end though.
Elon and Twitter Scammers
Elon has been annoyed by the Twitter giveaway scams for quite some time now, even though Twitter had a deletion of fake accounts recently, it still hasn’t stopped the scammers from sneaking into comment sections of famous Twitter handles.
Elon had previously jokingly said that he wanted that Eth even if its a scam.
At this point, I want ETH even if it is a scam

Dogecoin was created by Jackson Palmer as a joke based on a meme (Shiba), but still, it has managed to stay at the top being the 20th largest Cryptocurrency in terms of market cap. Dogecoin has managed to stay ahead of Zcash which is one of the serious Cryptocurrencies with advanced privacy features.
Dogecoin is currently priced at $0.00627 with a staggering market cap of $730 Billion. Surprisingly DOGE has been one of the best performing Cryptocurrencies in the last few months increasing over 150% in last month alone.
Dogecoin has declined 65% from the last high in January which is relatively better compared to Ethereum and Ripple (XRP) which have lost over 80% of their value from the all-time highs.
