Elon Musk Reveals Twitter Algorithm Recommends Accounts You Hate

In the above Tweet, Musk confirmed what many of us have only hinted at from personal experience on the platform. Although, it does not appear to be a new development, it is not of the the things that the Tesla boss will change as he sees it as not wrong.

Just about a week ago, the company redesigned its timeline feature to automatically show you recommended Tweets with an option to view posts from accounts you follow in a chronological order.

 

Feeding off hate is a risky business because while it gets the much-needed interaction, the platform could quickly devolve into a toxic place where people avoid. However, it seems that this is not yet happening on a grand enough scale to worry the powers that be.
