@Gargron Huh, whats up with Giphy?
@NicolasConstant Thank you Nicolas 🙇
@Gargron Nah, it's the trojan horse into Slack. That's what it is. Once they own Giphy, they pretty much own Slack.
@Gargron I think they should have charged FB $10 Billion for giphy
@Gargron Giphy also gets paid to inject "branded gif"/ads into their search... 🤮
@Gargron imagine being able to buy insight into people's vocabulary
Facebook reduced vocab through ux first to "like" then to a limited set of reactions, now it will observe expression selection in real-time
@Gargron provably about registrering emotions / feelings expressed through gifs.
@Gargron Can't be more redundant data on their system by now.
@Gargron apparently not on Signal: https://twitter.com/signalapp/status/1261364662840385536?s=20
They've spent time and effort to avoid exactly what you describe.
@Gargron fuck them: download gifs before publishing them and use pixelfed.Voilà.
@Gargron Facebook’s Giphy acquisition sounds antitrust alarms in Congress
@Gargron They're buying visibility into slack and signal.
@Gargron (and whatever else it integrates with but yeah).
