Yeah, in my case they hadn't liked or retweeted, it was just because they follow them. I can't find the setting now, but I remember there's a bunch of timeline settings that are opt-out like seeing tweets by follows of follows and stuff like that
Even companies, though. I have a friend who was outed to his entire family because a notification popped up on his facebook that he had been tagged in someone else's pictures by the facebook algos of the pride parade.
It was like the Target pregnant teenager story, but felt a lot more personal and real lol
@pdurbin Ben Taylor was working for HireVue, a company that does video interviews of job applicants to reduce human bias and increase diversity and experience in the workplace when he made an algorithm that determines how attractive someone is
sounds super sketchy, but they were able to use his algorithm to discover that because of the attractiveness bias in people, their algorithms also had an attractiveness bias (garbage in, garbage out)
Another good book on algorithmic and mathematical modeling bias is "Weapons of Math Destruction"
@becausealice2 I'm away from my computer, so I can't be sure it'll work, but you might be able to just pull the column itself and then do a reduce on making a vector. That might be a bit messy, but that's what's on the top of my head.
