Explain This Bob Suspension

Twitter has deactivated the account of the renowned memecoin-affiliated AI-driven bot, “Explain This Bob,” after Elon Musk declared it to be a “fraudulent crypto account.”

On June 18, Musk tweeted a reply to the bot, alleging that the account was a scam, and it appeared to be suspended shortly afterwards.

The Explain This Bob account allegedly gained more than 400,000 followers prior to its deactivation. Prabhu Biswal from India was the creator of the bot, which used OpenAI’s GPT-4 model to comprehend and answer tweets from those who tagged the account.

The project was correlated to the ERC-20 memecoin Bob Token (BOB) that was introduced in April 2023. The suspension caused the price of BOB to plunge more than 30% as reported by CoinGecko.

The suspension is a reversal of Musk’s previous attitude towards the bot, which had tweeted “I love Bob” in response to one of its tweets on April 20; this tweet is also prominently displayed on the project’s website.

Twitter, however, has not yet taken any action against the account of Bob Token. In response to the news of the suspension, the project’s team shared a humorous meme of Musk watching a distressed “Bob” in a jail cell.

Observers speculate that Musk believes Explain This Bob is a promotional ploy to bolster the value of BOB.

Since the suspension, the hashtag “FREEBOB” has been widely shared on Crypto Twitter. Many believe that BOB is not a fraudulent coin and that the suspension is unjustified, as its launch was “fair” and the token is “fully decentralized” with a 0% taxation system.

It was asserted that the team did not offer themselves any tokens or airdrops prior to the Bob Token launch in April.

Cointelegraph attempted to reach out to Biswal and Twitter for comment, but did not receive an answer right away.
