Musk had previously expressed concerns over the social media platform's algorithm, claiming that it is responsible for spreading misinformation and contributing to polarization. The decision to open-source the algorithm is part of Twitter's effort to be more transparent about how it works and to address concerns over the impact of social media on society. Twitter has stated that it hopes that open-sourcing the algorithm will enable researchers to better understand how it works and to identify any potential biases or issues. Twitter's move comes as part of a broader effort by social media companies to address concerns over the impact of their platforms on society.
