Can Grok Access Draft Posts Of Other Users On X? Fact-Checking A Viral Post


A recent viral post on Elon Musk’s AI company, X, has raised concerns about the access that the company’s chatbot, Grok, has to users’ draft posts. The post, which has since been revealed as satirical, showed an analysis of another user’s draft posts on X, implying that Grok had access to this private information. However, this is not the case.

Grok, the AI chatbot developed by X, does not have the ability to access any user’s draft posts. This includes both the drafts of other users and the drafts of the account holder themselves. The viral post caused unnecessary worry among users, but it has been fact-checked and confirmed that Grok’s access is limited to public posts only.

Community Notes, a fact-checking organization, has also verified that Grok can only provide results based on public posts of specified users. Even if users ask Grok to check a specific user’s draft posts, it will only return results using the public posts of that user. Therefore, there is no need for concern about privacy invasion or unauthorized access to draft posts.

It’s important to note that Grok has been used in the past by some to mock Elon Musk himself. The AI chatbot’s capabilities are limited to accessing public posts on X. It is not capable of accessing private or draft posts, ensuring user privacy and data security.

Grok’s access is currently being rolled out to X Premium+ subscribers. This feature has been in testing with a limited set of users throughout November and is now being made available to eligible subscribers on the web, iOS, and Android apps. The rollout is being done in a phased manner, starting with subscribers in the US.

For those concerned about their privacy and draft posts on X, rest assured that Grok does not have access to this information. The viral post that caused the concerns has been debunked as satire, and fact-checking organizations have confirmed Grok’s limited capabilities.

In conclusion, Elon Musk’s AI chatbot, Grok, cannot access the draft posts of other users or even the account holder’s own draft posts. Its access is restricted to public posts only. Users can use Grok without worrying about their privacy or data security. The rollout of Grok access is currently underway for X Premium+ subscribers, providing them with an enhanced experience on the platform.
