Here, Jack is right. Or rather, Gandhi is right. We mustn’t lose faith in humanity. But Twitter isn’t humanity. It’s a venture-backed tool that profits off human connections without really understanding how they work. It’s not an ocean. The more apt metaphor would be a bloodstream. And while a single turd doesn’t spoil an ocean, a single cancer cell in the bloodstream will spread and attack every healthy cell it encounters. For too long Jack has allowed the cancer of fascism to spread through Twitter’s bloodstream.
I wonder what would happen if everyone that agrees with the sentiments in this post stopped using Twitter for an entire month. Would the alt-Reich be enough to keep it alive?
Too many companies profiting off hate and outrage and hiding behind policies — it gets old.
