Brilliant! Surely the world will be a much better place with this kind of innovation. Bravo!

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.


All of Twitter’s problems have finally been solved! Good job, fam.
