Elon Musk Issues Warning to Twitter Users After Learning Algorithm May Be Manipulating You

Many of Twitter's dirty inner workings have been and will continue to be exposed, thanks to Elon Musk.

It's likely you've heard that the purchase has been put on hold. Elon discovered a lot more bogus or spam accounts than he expected, therefore that was the reason.

This kind of deception has been going on for a long time in my opinion. Around the time when Joe Biden was inaugurated, I really started paying attention.

At time I had initially wrote about the matter, Joe Biden had 26 million or so Twitter followers...and most of them were fake! Just take a look at this...

I looked at his account and looked at his followers and what I saw was the same exact thing. The majority of the followers are brand new accounts that were created in January.

But what Elon recently said regarding the platform and its users is that we're "being manipulated" and cautioned that everyone turn off the platform's algorithmic newsfeed.

“You are being manipulated by the algorithm in ways you do not realize … Easy to switch back and forth to see the difference,” Musk wrote on Twitter. The Tesla CEO advised other users to switch to seeing the latest Twitter posts immediately by tapping the Twitter home button, tapping the stars button on the upper right of the screen, and selecting “latest tweets.”

“I am not suggesting malice in the algorithm, but rather that it is trying to guess what you might want to read and, in doing so, inadvertently manipulate/ amplify your viewpoints without you realizing this is happening,” Musk continued in another post.

What if, and I'm just speculating here, what if Elon's plan was not to really purchase Twitter at all, but to simply expose it? I don't think he'll care much he buys it or not, because if it's exposed, then that will do a lot of damage to the brand and they may be forced to fix whatever issues they have.

Either way, this could turn out to be a positive even if he doesn't buy it.
