Elon Musk is up to some new techy antics. Twitter 2.0, now mysteriously named “X”, seems to be stirring the pot big time.
So, here's the juicy news from the digital grapevine: X might be peeking at your public data! Yup, a recent scoop from Bloomberg suggests that X is eyeing up not just your biometric deets but also your job and school info. Hold on, it gets crazier. Alex Ivanovs over at Stackdiary gave us a heads-up that X plans to use all this info to whip up some AI magic.
Now, the official word on the X street is that they're gonna use all the info they gather, and other public stuff, to train their AI brainpower. And, for those feeling a touch paranoid about DMs, Musk says, “Chill! We're only looking at public stuff. Your secret chats are safe with us!” But, given that X has ghosted its press team, digging deeper into what data they'll actually scoop and use is kind of tricky.
Although X isn't shouting about any AI dreams, our guy Musk sure is! He's kickstarted this super mysterious company called… wait for it… xAI. They’re on some cosmic mission to, in their words, “understand the true nature of the universe”. Who knows? Maybe they'll use your selfie to crack the code of existence or something. Plus, there’s some sneaky text on xAI’s site hinting they’re teaming up with X to chase this wild dream.
But hey, real talk? X could just be looking to boost their ad game. Maybe they're selling our data to rake in some extra cash. Although, we’ve no concrete proof. It's a tried-and-true social media move, after all. Back in the day, old-school Twitter was all about using our data for their gain. Whether X does the same… only time will tell. Stay tuned, techies!
