Daniel Halper recently discovered that Twitter wanted to help him out. After he chose to follow the Twitter feed of the White House, Twitter sent him a list of other accounts he might enjoy, accounts that the social media giant felt were “similar” to Barak Obama’s White House. Amusingly that list was filled with left-wing media types.
When Mr. Halper decided to follow the Twitter feed of the White House, Twitter quickly sent him an automatically generated email with some loverly suggestions. Now that he was following the White House, Twitter thought he might be interested in the following “similar” Twitter feeds:
- Left-wing newspaper The Washington Post
- Leftist Atlantic blogger Andrew Sullivan
- Far left “economist” Paul Krugman
- NBC News “First Read” blog
- ABC News Chief Legal Correspondent Chris Cuomo
Quipped Halper, “Looks like Twitter’s algorithm, which appears to have automatically generated this email, is working perfectly.”
“The only end of writing is to enable the reader better to enjoy life, or better to endure it.”
