Platformer note that to solve the problem of the impressions to the trill of the CEO of Twitter a special team of 80 engineers was dedicated solely to that task.

Among the reasons they found was that many users had silenced Elon Musk after the acquisition of the company and that there were also flaws in the platform’s algorithm, which caused their tweets to appear for less time.

So their solution was to artificially boost the billionaire’s tweets by a factor of 1,000, resulting in the posts appearing many more times than other posts.
