Twitter CEO Elon Musk on Sunday mentioned that engineers resolved two important issues on the platform throughout a “lengthy day at Twitter HQ” with him.
He said that the ‘Fanout service for Following feed’ was getting overloaded when “I tweeted, resulting in up to 95 per cent of my tweets not getting delivered at all”.
“Following is now pulling from search (aka Earlybird). When Fanout crashed, it could additionally destroy anybody else’s tweets in queue,” Musk added.
He also said that the recommendation algorithm was using absolute block count, rather than percentile block count, “causing accounts with many followers to be dumped, even if blocks were only 0.1 per cent of followers”.
“Also, it’s trivial to bot spam accounts with blocks,” the Twitter CEO said.
Musk also said that oversized fonts and undersized paragraph spacing will be fixed this week.
“Advertising also needs to be semantic keyword-based, so it’s contextually relevant. Amazingly, ads shown when doing twitter searches don’t consider the search words! We’re changing that as fast as possible,” Musk knowledgeable.
When a person mentioned that Blocks are fairly highly effective and “looks as if for accounts with lots of attain, they’ll most likely get blocked so much”, Musk replied that the giant block lists are problematic.
“They mess up the recommendation system & create a DDoS vector,” he added.
