"No one is incentivized to tell the truth on Twitter because no one has a stake in the platform. Without democratic ownership and the potential for collective upside, the only metric for user success is the accumulation of clicks and follows that one can accrue through ceaseless content creation, minus any serious regard for evidence or nuance. This is as true for the restless content creators who clearly fit this description as it is for the journalists, politicians, business leaders, and other venerated experts on Twitter whose professional reputations have been inextricably linked to their presence on the platform. Even though they don’t necessarily face the same pressure to post all the time, these experts are still compelled to place bias and clickbait above objectivity in order to keep their followers locked within informational echo chambers."
