When you have to put things in their place.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
For goodness sake…is it really a surprise? Let’s have a look. How long did we think the head of social media would bear the pressure? It’s almost a miracle they have lasted so long. They created tools to spread information of unrivalled power, but were they aware of it from the start?
It is normal for society to use a solution that has been offered to it. What is interesting is not necessarily the control that Twitter is trying to take back from its tools, nor its possible followers, but if they have any intentions, it is rather the fact that they may want to take back control of the nature of their platform itself.
Look at Facebook or Twitter, these platforms have been manipulated by us all, by leading us down that path that we know all too well. Do you think we would have reached this point with climate change if it wasn’t for people’s ability to manipulate what they do behind closed doors?
It is in our nature to test out our inclinations and quirks when we have the opportunity, hidden from the judgment of others, out of pleasure, curiosity or simply out of laziness. Good luck, Twitter.
