How Internet outrage is helping racists monetize hate.
Just curious... is active "performative allyship" to boost SEO of an issue/writer/topic that one actively supports wrong? I've been up against so much MAGA/troll farm/AI drivel (such as your illustration), which I ignore or mute. I no longer respond, having ceased arguments long ago (cue G.B.S. opining about pig wrestling). However when I "like" a tweet/thread/post, I sometimes see its reach extended in real time, so I persist to engage accounts I support or admire, regularly giving a "like" just to have it shown to more humans. Of course, I tell myself that MY causes are just, my comment standards high, and my sense of humor irrepressible. As for farming for clicks, well let's face it, content providers deserve to be paid. And as MAGA conveniently forgets, clicks are not actually votes.
BTW Love your columns!!
First time I’m using Notes and I can’t favorite this one. Seems to work on others. Maybe I have subscription deficit disorder.
Isn't banning the account which create such content actually harm then plus avoid seeing their future content?
As far as I know, in most networks they measure it and penalize highly banned creators
