Expanding AI Access to User Content

Background on AI Access: Social Network X is not the first platform to open its doors to artificial intelligence applications. Earlier, the Brave browser and the Zoom messenger adopted similar measures. Furthermore, tech giants like Microsoft and Amazon have been actively engaged in this practice.

Elon Musk’s Role in the Transition

Musk’s Influence: Elon Musk, the former owner of Social Network X, had previously taken extensive measures to isolate the platform from external influences. This included restricting access to third-party applications and accusing Microsoft of unauthorized content usage.

A Change of Perspective: However, with the introduction of Musk’s artificial intelligence venture, he now stands to benefit from the wealth of content available on Social Network X. This platform serves as a colossal source of text and data, with exclusive access granted to Musk.

Evidence from The intentions of this development are alluded to by, a separate entity from X Corp, stating, “We are a separate company from X Corp, but will work closely with X (Twitter), Tesla, and other companies to make progress on our mission.”

Impact on Users

User Experience Changes: These updated terms of use have implications for the platform’s users. Access to specific content may be restricted or even terminated. Some tweets or hashtags may become invisible, and achieving broader visibility for one’s own content could become more challenging. While concerns about Twitter shadowbans have existed for some time, the integration of automation and artificial intelligence introduces greater complexity to the situation, notes NIX Solutions.

Effective Date of New X/Twitter Usage Policy

The new terms of use for Social Network X, formerly Twitter, are scheduled to come into effect on September 29th, signaling a significant shift in the platform’s approach to content utilization.
