Elon Musk Holes Twitter’s Algorithm, Offers 3 Steps; Jack Dorsey says…


Elon Musk’s Twitter deal was put on hold, but the multi-billionaire hasn’t stopped tweeting on Twitter and for one such tweet where he revealed the sample size of a bot check, Elon Musk also got a call from Twitter’s legal team.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk, whose $44 billion deal to acquire Twitter has been temporarily put on hold, offered three easy steps for his followers to “fix” the Twitter feed. The multi-billionaire said, “You’re manipulated by the algorithm in ways you don’t realize. Easy to come and go to see the difference.” According to the SEC filing, Elon Musk was not allowed to post tweets about his acquisition of Twitter if it disparaged the company or any of its representatives.

So what are these 3 steps suggested by Elon Musk?

1. Press the “Home” button

2. Tap the stars at the top right of the screen

3. Select ‘latest tweets’.

“This message is brought to you by the Illuminaughty,” Elon Musk added sarcastically.

As Elon Musk continues his habit of tweeting randomly, Twitter co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey chose to address Elon Musk’s apparent complaint about Twitter’s algorithm. In response to Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey said the algorithm was designed simply “to save you time when you’re away from the app for a while. Pull to refresh also reverts to reverse timeline.”

Elon Musk’s Twitter deal has been temporarily suspended due to spam/fake accounts. Twitter said fake or spam accounts accounted for less than 5% of its monetizable daily active users. Elon Musk’s team will randomly sample 100 Twitter followers to learn more about fake accounts. Revealing the sample size threw Elon Musk into the soup as he received a call from Twitter’s legal department accusing him of violating the nondisclosure agreement. “It really happened,” Elon Musk tweeted as if in disbelief.

“Whoever thought owning the (liberal) libs would be cheap never tried to acquire a social media company… At least that’s what the collective mind of the libs thinks haha,” tweeted Musk.
