Tweets that express right-wing political views allegedly receive higher exposure on Twitter, according to a recent study that was reported on Saturday by N12.
Researchers had examined many tweets from several key countries between April and August of last year and concluded that right-wing parties, politicians, news outlets and political commentators have received more traction on the website than that of left-wing tweets, said N12.
Key countries include Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States.
The study reports that Twitter’s algorithm overall prefers tweets with a right-wing political affiliation.
Twitter stated that they do not know how to explain this phenomenon, and are currently working to find the cause of it, N12 reported.

The official Twitter account posted humorously in response to this incident with “hello everyone.”
