However, Twitter has made it clear that the open source release does not include the code to support ad recommendations. In addition, the company has decided not to publish the training data or model weights related to the Twitter algorithm at this time.
Amidst the flurry of updates, some users have suggested that Twitter improve user experience and account integrity by adding a page for account integrity check. This could provide users with the ability to check if they have any current or prior account issues and what the status/resolution is. They have also suggested that Twitter show why someone is limited and how to fix any temporary holds for security reasons. Finally, users are asking for ways to remediate and regain status, should they be affected by any account issues.
This latest update from Twitter is expected to bring more transparency to the social media platform, and the move towards open source recommendations is being welcomed by many in the tech industry. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
