How Elon Musk is evolving Twitter
Twitter, under Elon Musk, has made some wise investments to become Compute-Heavy.
- They’ve replaced a manpower-heavy safety team with personalization and community notes (AI-assisted crowd-sourced fact-checking).
- They are forcing users to subscribe. It might not be only for cash. Subscribers end up revealing their identity and get classified as digitally transacting users. Brands pay a premium to advertise to these folks.
- Finally, they’ve killed off the Twitter API, thereby protecting the data inside from being used by LLMs.
