Only verified users’ tweets will now be recommended on Twitter, no polls for non-Blue users
On Twitter, Musk wrote that only tweets from verified accounts would be shown in the “For You” tab. This timeline shows Tweets from Twitter accounts that a user has chosen to follow. The user might see suggested content that is based on a number of different signals. From “For you,” one can reply to, retweet, or like a Tweet.
In the same tweet, he also stated that accounts that don’t have Twitter Blue wouldn’t be able to vote in polls anymore.
According to the Twitter chief, this is the “only practical approach” that can be taken to stop advanced AI bot swarms from taking over. He mentioned that these changes would happen April 15th onwards.
