Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen discusses Elon Musk’s plans for Twitter and Elon Musk previously discussed making Twitter a “town square” where important matters can be debated.
Frances Haugen said that if Elon Musk wants Twitter to become a public domain, he should make its algorithm open source. Elon Musk has previously discussed making Twitter a digital town square where issues important to the future of humanity are debated.
Hogan appeared on a special edition of NBC News’ Meet the Press on Sunday morning to discuss Elon Musk’s thoughts on how social media is shaping politics. He told journalist Chuck Todd that one of the important things Elon Musk can do to prove it is to publish a public square algorithm.
He said that this would help them more and it would be cheaper for them. It would be more profitable. One of the reasons Elon Musk bought Twitter has been clear about giving power to the people. He also explained in a memo shortly after sealing the $44 billion deal that he had acquired it to boost negotiations, which he believed had been lost.
Elon Musk wants Twitter to be the most accurate source of information about the world. However in the weeks following the acquisition they reduced the number of people who were primarily in charge of handling content moderation and Haugen is a former product manager on Facebook’s civic integrity team. She went public in 2021 and leaked decisions exposing massive internal documents.
He said the Congress had to lead to more division, more damage, more lies, more danger and more war. In an interview with NBC News, Haugen also said that social-media companies generally resist government intervention because it could reduce profits by at least 20%.
Haugen said. If we really had transparency, if we really had accountability, they wouldn’t be a 35% profit margin company. They would have been a company with a 15% profit margin. The Wall Street Journal later reported that Instagram worsens body image issues for teens.
Facebook sees pre-teens as an untapped market and also has a secret system that allows its 5.8 million users, which is believed to include politicians and celebrities, and whistleblowers also say that Unless CEO Mark Zuckerberg steps down, his company will not recover.
