Vitalik Buterin has a solution for the Twitter bot problem!


FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried tweeted one way to get rid of the Twitter bot problem. As per SBF, on-chain social media messages, even a tiny amount of gas per message would discourage nefarious behavior.

In response to this tweet, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin came up with another better solution to get rid of Twitter bots via a conditional burn mechanism

In this, the recipient should have the right to burn tokens or donate to charity. However, messages should remain free if they are not marked as spam.
