If you don’t pay the $8 your tweets will be suppressed by an algorithm. Not making this shit up he said it to a room of investors yesterday & claimed this would solve hate speech. “You’ll have to scroll really far to see unverified users”
@brimshae @Bastard_Beast network effects. Many people would rather be on fediverse or other networks but the fact remains that the bulk of social activity still happens on Twitter and other centralised platforms.
My hope is that with the changes at Twitter and the evolution of new decentralised options like nostr and keet (which make on boarding much easier than fedi), we'll see more of a shift, socially, away from corporate media
@brimshae @Bastard_Beast extremely early days for nostr but there are various clients under development, still experimental and def not ready for normie on boarding yet. I say it's simpler for on boarding as all you need is a private/public key pair to own your own data, no having to either run your own server or trust another provider. Data is transmitted client to client via relay servers.
