I can’t help but feel that these 2009 vs 2019 selfie tweets are being harvested for ML.

“AI PROVES THAT MORE TIME ON TWITTER MAKES YOU AGE FASTER!”

“PEOPLE WITH PRONOUNS IN THEIR TWITTER PROFILE AGE SLOWER THAN THOSE WITHOUT”

“THIS ONE WEIRD TWITTER/FB TRICK WILL SLOW AGING!”

@dshafik Maybe, as backwards as they are. More likely that people who like to emphasize pronouns age slower.😜

@dshafik I don't doubt for a moment that's true. The ML part, not the support psuedo-science conclusions part. Even if the meme wasn't designed with that in mind, SOMEONE is harvesting the data anyway.

@saramg @dshafik Training the models to recognize 10-year changes in faces.

@ramsey @dshafik Yeah, that's what I'm saying. It's solid ML training material.
