I say this without having seen any data, but the idea that < 5% of accounts are bots seems absurdly low -- I would have guessed 30 or 40%.

But then, what counts as a "bot" here? Not everything that posts spam is a bot, and vice versa.

I have a Twitter account that I use solely to transfer Playstation/Switch screenshots -- using Twitter like a bad Dropbox. Is it a bot? Probably nobody cares about banning it, but it's not an engaged audience member.
