This process is called “open source” and in this case, Twitter says the part that’s public is the code that decides how the social media company recommends content.
Twitter CEO Elon Musk says the entirety of the code will be available in the coming weeks, and users and programmers alike are now able to have a peek into its workings. They can even suggest modifications to the algorithm. Musk has suggested that third parties should be able to analyze the open-source code, saying “No doubt, many embarrassing issues will be discovered, but we will fix them fast!”
He added that Twitter will update its recommendation algorithm based on user suggestions every 24 to 48 hours. With this move towards transparency, Twitter hopes to build trust among its users and create a platform that is more user-friendly.
