Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter and Tesla, on Friday night, February 24, stated that he has unblocked everyone on the microblogging platform, calling “negative comments a good thing”.
Except for scammers, the multi-billionaire confirmed that everyone he has ever blocked on Twitter has been unblocked. He also advised others to do the same in order to encourage negative comments.
“I have unblocked everyone I blocked, apart from scammers. I recommend others do the same. Negative feedback is a good thing,” Musk tweeted on Saturday night, February 24.
Musk has been making numerous adjustments to his own Twitter account since acquiring the microblogging network last year.
Musk locked his Twitter profile for 24 hours earlier this month to see how account privacy affects the reach of private and public tweets.
The 51-year-old stated that the test assisted him in identifying several problems inside Twitter’s system, which the social networking platform intends to address and correct as soon as possible.
Musk also stated that the microblogging platform’s algorithm will be made “open source” and improved “rapidly” starting next week.
When Musk tweeted, “say what you want about me, but I acquired the world’s largest non-profit for $44B lol”, one user commented: “Right. Now open source it, then we’ll be truly impressed.”
To which the Twitter boss said “Prepare to be disappointed at first when our algorithm is made open source next week, but it will improve rapidly!”
