Elon Musk has been experimenting with a viral hack for several hours to figure out what is wrong with Twitter, especially in light of allegations that making a Twitter account private would increase its visibility. Ian Miles Cheong claimed that after making his account private, he got 20 new followers and had significant increases in his reach factor.
Mr. Tweet is now receiving critical remarks and mockery from various members of the public, who claim that he has no idea what he is doing, instead of users taking this seriously.
To test a viral hack, Elon Musk locks his Twitter account
To increase his online prominence, Chief Twit decided to test out a user-discovered viral hack, which involves making one’s Twitter account private. He made the announcement online, claiming that he did it to monitor social media and see whether this was taking on there.
The IT CEO wants to know if changing the privacy setting on his Twitter account will affect how visible his profile is. At the moment, his account is private.
This information was gleaned from an influencer’s post in which Cheong asserted that his time in a secret account and his public status differed significantly.
Users Seeking the Truth Make Fun of Chief Twit
Musk now finds himself the target of ridicule on Twitter after the CEO tested this hack, losing the public’s support in his search for the source of the issue.
One commenter referred to this as a “middle school experiment,” calling Elon Musk a fool for firing engineers who “might have maybe explained it to him,” about the algorithm.
All joking aside, Mr. Tweet is taking this seriously when he claims that there is a problem with the platform.
Twitter Algorithm and Musk
When Musk was still planning to acquire Twitter in early 2022, there was talk that his algorithm was unfair to various users and that he would tackle it if he jumped in as its leader. ‘s CEO said the platform had “virtual bias” and asked the public if they would prefer it to be open source.
After the acquisition, the chief of Twit took to the internet to talk about Twitter’s algorithm and how it’s up to him to change it and restore it to its former glory.
He also said the platform no longer has a “fair algorithm,” and he Twitter fired ML Ethics, Transparency, and Accountability Director (META) Rumman Chowdhury.
The new Twitter CEO appears to have a lot to learn about the service, particularly from its staff members and engineers who are already familiar with social media.
He must still make his discoveries, notably on this algorithmic preference favouring private accounts.
