Open-sourcing Twitter’s algorithms is more complex than Elon Musk implies


“Open sourcing Twitter’s algorithms has the potential to turn Twitter into a truly trusted platform, where users would understand why certain tweets show up on top of the list, and all concerns about behind-the-scenes secrecy or bias would be removed,” said Marc Linster, CTO at open source database firm EDB. “These concerns have been rampant with Google and Facebook. This open-sourcing move could be game-changing for social media overall.”
