Pluck

I think we can say with some degree of certainty that Twitter has systematically elevated fringe positions and granted sociopaths - whose feeding grounds have typically been constrained by natural factors - a global remit. This barely constitutes an "observation." It's a fairly simple transform executed on the absolute edges of the signal, what these instruments are painstakingly designed to do, and we get to live in the chasm that has opened between them. Imagine if a sore could have sores. It's a hellscape that gleefully commingles Dante's Inferno and a high school cafeteria.

You can say, well, what about all the good things that happened? What about all the X, where X equals something that isn't a leash getting caught in a chipper shredder, inexorably hauling in a beloved pet? Yeah, people are pretty cool, I agree. They can surprise you. And they can project their incandescent humanity even in the hideous arena our overlords have built around us.

But subbing for it? And getting deeply ordinary, almost rude not to include features in exchange? Get the fuck out of here.

(CW)TB out.
