Musk says Twitter algorithm manipulating users, instructs how to fix your feed

May 16, 2022

While the former CEO Jack Dorsey disagrees. Alamy Elon Musk, the man who wants to unlock Twitter's true potential, has created some problems for the social media company by calling its algorithm 'manipulative,' Business Insider reported . As usual, the Tesla CEO took to Twitter over the weekend to air his views. Very important to fix your Twitter feed: 1. Tap home button. 3. Select “Latest tweets”. Easy to switch back & forth to see the difference. Jack Dorsey defends Twitter Twitter founder  and former CEO Jack Dorsey was rather quick to respond to Musk's tweet and said that the function was designed to save users time and stay connected with the content of their choice. Considering that the time gap between Musk's tweet and Dorsey's reply was mere minutes, it seems like Dorsey uses the 'Latest Tweets' option. Engaging with another Twitter user, who told Dorsey that these features were forced upon users, the Twitter founder said: They simply try to put the tweets that you’re *most likely* to engage with at the top. That’s it. Predictive based on what you like, retweet, reply to, search for, pause on, etc. it’s meant to be a convenience, nothing more. Again most important is being able to turn off.
