Musk claims the transfer is “the one reasonable method to handle superior AI bot swarms taking on.” Verified customers are additionally going to develop into the one accounts that may vote in polls for the “identical motive,” Musk says.
It’s value taking this announcement with a giant grain of salt, as Musk’s tweets haven’t at all times changed into enforced coverage or options. Maybe the largest instance is his promise from February that the corporate was going to start out sharing advert income with Blue subscribers, one thing that’s still MIA virtually two months later. That very same month, he also promised to open-source the corporate’s algorithm by March fifth, which hasn’t occurred but — although now he says it’ll occur on March thirty first, with out acknowledging the earlier missed deadline.
Musk has made related guarantees previously. Earlier than he dropped the charade of supposedly asking the neighborhood earlier than making main modifications to the service, he said that Twitter would solely permit Blue Subscribers to vote in coverage polls. It’s a little bit of a moot level now that he’s not likely doing these anymore, although.
