Twitter CEO Admits Algorithms May be Biased

During the Senate Intelligence Committee’s hearing, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said that the company’s algorithms have not always been impartial, and may have unfairly reduced the visibility of around 600,000 accounts.

Twitter, which is one of the companies being accused of bias against conservatives, however did not specify whether the accounts were Democratic or Republican.

Dorsey also revealed that Twitter is able to detect and prevent bots from using fake accounts, and that the platform is focused on conversation health, taking in “shared attention” when determining if a conversation is being manipulated.
