The founder of Tesla and SpaceX called the algorithm of the social network Twitter "manipulative". He shared his opinion in
Very important to fix your Twitter feed:
1. Tap home button.
2. Tap stars on upper right of screen.
3. Select "Latest tweets".
You are being manipulated by the algorithm in ways you don't realize.
Easy to switch back & forth to see the difference.

Twitter founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey was quick to respond to Musk's tweet. He stated that this feature was designed to save users time.
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.

Algorithms work in such a way as to simply movetop The tweets you are most likely to interact with are at the top. That's all. This is a prediction based on what you like, retweets, replies, searches, etc. are evaluated. This is for convenience, nothing more. The function can be disabled.
How the algorithm works remains a secret, andMusk has previously said he plans to change that. Over the weekend, Tesla's CEO responded to his initial tweet by noting that he does not consider the algorithm to be malicious. However, it can inadvertently manipulate or reinforce someone's point of view without the user realizing what's going on.
So far, Musk has postponed the purchase of the social network, citing a large amount of spam or fake accounts on the platform, and CEO Parag Agarwal has not ruled out that the deal will not go through at all.
