For many of us, Twitter’s “For You” is full of tweets and replies to Elon Musk’s tweets. Not everyone gets Elon’s first stream, but by Monday afternoon more than a few people noticed something was different.
Many of us here at The edge are seeing more Musk replies than usual, and I personally counted five at the very top of my feed, with many more sprinkled between other users’ tweets. The same goes for some accounts that don’t even follow Elon Musk.
As reported by PlatformAccording to Zoë Schiffer and Casey Newton, internal Twitter data indicates that while Musk’s account peaked in popularity in search rankings in April 2022, engagement has since declined significantly and engineers found no issues. with the Twitter algorithm.
Over the weekend, Musk said Twitter had rolled out some sort of change to address this “visibility” issue, with the billionaire CEO indicating that 95% of his tweets were not “delivered”. I don’t know if it’s related to that Elon-filled feed, but hopefully Twitter fixes that soon — unless the new mandate is to get more views from the boss by any means necessary.
