Elon Musk’s X (Formerly Twitter) Alters News Display, Prompting User Confusion

In a recent development on Elon Musk’s social media platform, X (formerly known as Twitter), some users reported encountering changes in the way news links and headlines are displayed within posts. Instead of the traditional format, several users observed that posts now presented graphics of individual news articles. This shift has raised questions and caused confusion among the platform’s user base.

This alteration comes in line with Elon Musk’s earlier confirmation of a potential change in the platform’s aesthetics, aiming to enhance user experience. While Musk has been overseeing product and feature development, Linda Yaccarino, appointed as CEO of X in June, has been focusing on the business and operational aspects. This change in news display format has prompted speculation on whether it signifies a broader rollout or is limited to a select group of users.

The recent adjustments follow a series of strategic moves within the company. Yaccarino has been actively working to regain advertisers’ trust on the platform, while Musk envisions transforming the messaging and social media service into a multifaceted app with expanded functionalities, including payment services. Additionally, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) announced a decision to resume advertising on X after a temporary pause. The civil rights organization had previously advised brand advertisers to halt their campaigns due to an influx of hateful posts, a recommendation that led to a significant drop in ad revenue for the platform. The ADL clarified that it did not orchestrate a boycott or cause substantial financial losses to the company.

While the ADL acknowledges X’s recent efforts to combat hate speech and antisemitism, it asserts that more comprehensive measures are required to address these critical issues effectively. As the platform continues to evolve, users and advocacy groups alike are closely monitoring these changes and their impact on the overall user experience and content quality.
