Hoe alt-right en ‘alt-light’ het Nederlandse Twitter domineren
"Er bestaan geen afgesloten ruimtes op Twitter, maar wel groepen van mensen die tegen elkaar aan schuren en soms met elkaar verweven kunnen raken. De ‘filterbubbel’, die jarenlang in zwang was, bestaat dus niet. Liever spreken academici over ‘deelpublieken’. Niemand maakt online uitsluitend deel uit van één deelpubliek of heeft nooit contact met mensen uit andere groepen, maar ze zijn wel duidelijk in zo’n deelpubliek in te delen op basis van hun gedragingen."

"Voor de Vlaamse cultuurwetenschapper Ico Maly is dat geen verrassing. ‘De kracht van alt-right schuilt niet zozeer in intellectuele vernieuwing. Het zwaartepunt van het succes ligt in het gebruik van nieuwe vormen en structuren om oude ideeën te lanceren’, schrijft hij in zijn boek Nieuw rechts. ‘Het succes van de metapolitieke strijd van alt-right is onlosmakelijk verbonden met het winstoogmerk en de interfaces van de mainstream digitale media.’"

YouTube creators are turning the site into a podcast network
"A recent survey of Canadian adults found that 43 percent of people “went to YouTube for podcasts in the past year.” That put YouTube ahead of Apple Podcasts (34 percent) and Spotify (23 percent)."

"Creating a separate channel for clips lets podcasters take advantage of YouTube’s recommendation algorithm, which surfaces content on specific subjects a viewer is already interested in."

Journalism Is an Action
"Social media is a powerful tool for making us all look like idiots. Twitter is a machine that allows you to show the entire world what a dumbass you are."

"Journalism is not an identity. Journalism is an action. It is something you do. If you go out and gather true facts and write them in a true and readable way, you have done journalism. (Note the use of word “true.” The fact that anyone can do journalism doesn’t mean that everyone does journalism.) There is not a priestly class of people called “journalists” who are able to produce Certified Real Journalism, which exists on a higher plane from the tawdry musings of the rabble."

The Global Machine Behind the Rise of Far-Right Nationalism
"The distorted view of Sweden pumped out by this disinformation machine has been used, in turn, by anti-immigrant parties in Britain, Germany, Italy and elsewhere to stir xenophobia and gin up votes, according to the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, a London-based nonprofit that tracks the online spread of far-right extremism."

How TikTok could fail
"The company spent nearly $1 billion on advertising the app in 2018, the Wall Street Journal reported in June. And platform executives familiar with ByteDance’s spending have told me that a significant majority of new users still abandon the app within 30 days."

"And so it’s at least of moderate concern that TikTok has so far offered users no direct way to make money in the United States. (It does in China.) TikTok is already arguably less attractive to influencers than, say, Instagram, because the app is designed to work even if you never follow a single creator. Then again, Instagram still doesn’t really offer users a direct way to make money from their posts, either, unless you count its experiments around e-commerce."

Internet Deception Is Here to Stay—So What Do We Do Now? | WIRED
"A deception-free internet is a nostalgia-steeped illusion; falsehood has been a part of the digital world practically since its inception. A better question might be the likely scale of online fakery a decade from now."
