This is an outrage! I’ll never use the platform again.

This is why you shouldn’t pay by word count



The orange shit-gibbon will be outraged. Good.

I have redesigned this post to deemphasize my skepticism that this will change anything.


What passes for meaningful change at Twitter, I guess. Expect to see them deal with trolls and Nazis in a similarly “radical” way…


I always thought there ought to be a staged soft-banning feature is to not let them see how many likes or retweets they get per post. Cut out the skinner box light.

…or just apply to all high-follower accounts: tuck the count away into a separate (slow loading) analytics page (only accessible from a desktop browser), so you’ll have to hunt for it if you have to, but you get no immediate feedback just for posting.
