While Twitter’s recommendation algorithm was just shared as open source, it turned out that Elon Musk was placed at a key point in this algorithm.
The other day, Elon Musk, after a long wait, caused a question mark in people’s minds. Twitter suggestion algorithm It was released as open source. The reason for sharing the algorithm in question was that in the first place, users were offered unrelated posts, even if they were not popular.
Moreover, the company does not respond to such complaints.because of this”, he needed a concrete basis to show, and it wouldn’t make much sense unless the other party saw this algorithm. But while we’re focused on this in algorithm Little surprises are not uncommon.
Below you can see some of the categories included in the codes in the algorithm.

As you can see here, there are democrats at the top and republicans at the bottom, while there are democrats at the bottom. Elon stands out. In this grouping, which is basically made to collect data and take action according to the data, Elon Musk’s own tweets. to a separate category It’s pretty weird to put it.
The fact that this was later deleted from the algorithm also makes the issue even more strange.
Whether Musk’s own account contains tweets important enough to show as a category. not having a separate topic of discussion. Also, while this is certainly known to play a role in interaction, what exactly does it do? not explicitly stated. Basically, the category purpose is used to collect data as shown in the previous image.
Musk’s statement on this subject: “Is that so, or why?” flavored
After this question was brought up to a Twitter official and himself in the Spaces room, Musk said to himself:Elon being one of the 4 categories Isn’t it strange?” he conveys the incoming question to the Twitter official without breaking the momentum. Meanwhile, Elon’sMeanwhile I heard first time thisIt’s strange that he said.
We will see together what other surprises the algorithm will bring to us.
