I absolutely think Twitter is radicalizing people, and youโ€™re so right, itโ€™s all because of how content is incentivized. The most radical content gets the most reach.

When Musk first took over he said it should be โ€œfreedom of speech, not freedom of reach.โ€ But so far they still havenโ€™t figured out how to not let radical content go the farthest.

Stepping away from twitter rn is a good move. I find it haunting too, and this is a great reminder that I can just turn away from the timeline violence

Grant, this was a very observational and powerful breakdown of a topic so relevant to our times.

I've struggled to relate to Twitter (now X?) and how much I want to rely on the feed as a source of information.

Awesome essay. Celebrate this one :)
