In a recent update to its privacy policy, X (formerly Twitter) has informed users of its intention to collect biometric data, job history, and education history. However, another section of the updated policy reveals a broader plan.

X now states that it will use the information collected, along with publicly available data, to train its machine learning and artificial intelligence models.

This change in policy has sparked speculation about Elon Musk's involvement, as Musk has ambitions to enter the AI market with his company, xAI. Alex Ivanovs, known for discovering notable updates in tech companies' terms of service, theorizes that Musk may intend to use X as a valuable source of data for xAI.

Musk has previously mentioned that xAI would use "public tweets" to train its AI models, and he accused other tech giants of leveraging Twitter data for similar purposes.

While X and xAI are separate entities, the xAI homepage states that it will collaborate closely with X, Tesla, and other companies. Musk clarified on X that the plan is to use only "public data, no DMs or anything private."
