Birdsite's algo actively elbows out civil behavior to make space for dramatic screaming matches. No wonder it triggers people! It's designed to do so. Birdsite smartly turns your anger into engagement and then into advertising dollars.
It's not just about people being "bad". Birdsite's algo actively wants you to be bad. Very very BAD 😈
@nknagar @sanjayuvacha The ideal way to prove it would need someone to run analytics on birdsite's engagement metrics, or get access to the feed algo. Both are beyond my current skillsets.
I looked for academic studies and no one seems to have done the work on proving the existence of a rage algo, at least not the way they've worked on understanding the envy algos for FB and Insta.
Need a few skilled data analysts and academic researchers to pick this up, before lawyers do!
