Elon Musk wants Twitter to prevent embarrassing display Android producers

Elon Musk is at it again. On Twitter, the platform he owns, he announced that he wants to make a modification to the network. The richest man on earth wants to make the social medium faster by disabling certain services. Something that could finally solve embarrassing displays for Android manufacturers.

The owner of SpaceX, Tesla and Twitter wants to remove a familiar label from tweets. We’re talking about the label from which you can tell where someone is tweeting from. In my case, for example, it says “Flamingo for Android,” from which you can infer that I am (still) using the app Flamingo on Android.

Elon Musk adapts Twitter

That’s pretty harmless then. But big tech companies are no fools, and use such means to promote their own products. Anyway, it did provide some funny situations, like the story of someone tweeting from a smart refrigerator. Whether that was accurate is a second, but anything for memes, right?

Twitter is not loading because you did not give permission.

And we will finally stop adding what device a tweet was written on (waste of screen space & compute) below every tweet. Literally no one even knows why we did that …

But Elon Musk thinks enough is enough. That line of text is “a waste of space and computing power.” Also, “literally no one” would know why that rule was ever there in the first place. This is one of the microservices that Musk wants to eliminate, allowing Twitter to load even faster on the web and in the app.

Awkward situations

In the past, the tag sometimes produced embarrassing situations. One of the most typical examples is Wonder Woman actor Gal Gadot. At the time, she was an ambassador for Huawei and, for a fee, posted tweets about its new smartphones. But she did so from an iPhone and everyone could see that.

Perhaps even funnier is the time Samsung was promoting its own Galaxy smartphones, with a tweet sent from an iPhone. And then we have the Apple Music representative who sent tweets from an Android. Such tweets have since been removed, unfortunately.
