New Delhi: In a new tweet thread, tech billionaire and Twitter boss Elon Musk has hinted that a new Twitter update will soon be introduced that will recommend amazing tweets from people in other countries and cultures to users after they’ve been translated. It will open a treasure trove of tweets hidden and untapped in the microblogging site for users that may be useful to them.

Twitter split over the new change

A user suggested in the comments section to allow this to be switched because the new recommendations were great but the user should have 100% full control.

Another Mason Belt user told Musk to give them a feed of the people they follow as their default feed.

Kambree, a Twitter user, said she just wanted her access and engagement again, and she thought that was cool, thanks!

Twitter user Jeff Quatromani asked Musk, who was asking. He suggested adding the option to translate tweets from people they definitely follow, but recommending tweets wasn’t on any wishlist.

However, a Twitter user named Jason called it a clever idea and predicted that it would increase cross-cultural empathy and joy. While another user said they would like to see the lines that divide them finally blurred.

This is how users interact.
