Elon Musk accuses Twitter algorithms of manipulating users


Share this :


Elon Musk proposed changing the approach to switching the algorithmic Twitter feed to a chronological one. In his opinion, the recommender system manipulates users.

The billionaire admitted the absence of “malicious intent” in the actions of the algorithm.

Musk also made possible the presence of possible errors in the code.

Earlier, Musk announced the acquisition of Twitter for $44 billion. One of the priorities of the billionaire identified the disclosure of the source code of recommender algorithms and ensuring freedom of speech on the platform.

Recall that in May, Musk announced the suspension of the acquisition of Twitter after the media reported on the overestimation of the audience of the platform.

In the same month, the entrepreneur supported an EU bill regulating social media algorithms.
