Right-wing extremism and Twitter

Something I wrote on Mastodon.

Twitter is a lesson in the structural imbalances that fuel society. We put our passion into a product that was, at best, compromised from the start. The form created, fed, and thrived on base impulses. The wider the circle we drew, the more adversarial it became, the harder we fought to hold our ground. That’s a way of seeing, of being in the world, that is antithetical to wellbeing. Twitter has always been toxic, abusive. Only now are we seeing its truth.
