A thread on MuskSite about how gamification makes it hard for people to leave and makes them a bit disappointed when they try other sites. Please do share over there if interested, if you're still posting there to try and help people escape...

@continuation The gamification and addiction dynamics of Twitter is something that we can't ethically copy into the fediverse. This does make fedi less "sticky", and creates a systemic disadvantage. But I think we're much better off without addictive mechanics, which create all sorts of problems.

@bob Oh yes, if you see the thread I'm very happy the fediverse offers much relief from that world.

I misread this as "gentrification", and I had to stop myself from more than two minutes of pondering.

That would have been a good idea had I not left over an hour ago. I will share elsewhere.
