Re: EF Tip Jar

I guess theoretically the company is enabling the good writers get a bit of the twitter's cash. Except it's the readers who pay. Writers will obsess even more, plagiarism will blossom like crazy. Reddit will do it, too, I bet.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-57021380.amp says:

"To begin with, only a select group of people can receive tips - a group Twitter said was made up of "creators", journalists, experts, and non-profits." So that means Twitter controlling what is valued and endorsed. What opinions will get people's cash and become new dogma.

And people will pay because they will like that feeling of control, without realizing Twitter is pre-filtering who will be seen as worthy of their cash.

They should start charging haters before that.

Re: EF Tip Jar

Looks like Twitter is moving from cancelling to enabling people to pay the voices they want to hear. I am curious about the outcome.
