Well Jarvis is at it again: https://medium.com/whither-news/journalism-is-the-conversation-the-conversation-is-journalism-22a8c631e952.
It’s incredibly frustrating to have such shitty social networks—mostly because defenses of them end up so utterly annoying, straw man-ish, and moralizing.
@jny: I see you read Jarvis's piece, too! It drives me up a wall that you get called a panicky determinist whenever you point out that tech influences behavior—as though there weren't a more nuanced philosophical stance!
@john I'm writing a thing now, prolly for Galley
@jny Ooo nice. lmk when you have a link up, I've got ~feelings~.
@jny It's baffling to me that you can think that "there are good people on Twitter" is a rejoinder to the claim the "Twitter incentivizes bad behavior!"
@john He hasn't got the imagination to understand that products can be different. Deep down, he thinks, I suspect, it's Twitter or death.
@jny 🔥🔥🔥 I mean, *I* wouldn’t be quite so harsh. But you’re not wrong!
I guess the tone down I would make is the aside abt the FB funding? But again, you’re not wrong
@jny also! I recognize me in there, and I’m v/flattered.
@john Yah, you're right. But, yes, thank you for the thought. This is live https://twitter.com/jny/status/1089613926197854208
