Elon Musk on Friday said that X Corp (formerly Twitter) will not use users’ data to train its machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) models.
The X owner said that the social media company will use “just public data, not direct messages (DMs) or anything private”.
X said it may collect and use personal information (such as your employment history, educational history, employment preferences, skills and abilities, job search activity and engagement, and so on) “to recommend potential jobs for you, to share with potential employers when you apply for a job, to enable employers to find potential candidates, and to show you more relevant advertising”.
In July, X Corp. was named in a proposed class-action lawsuit in the US over its data collection practices.
The lawsuit alleged that X “has not adequately informed individuals” that it “collects and/or stores their biometric identifiers in every photograph containing a face” that’s uploaded to the platform.
