Links/RTs rarely=endorsement, often=“Intriguing”

Updating the profile to make the ambiguity as clear as possible. ;)

Soial media algorithms put people in categories — they HAVE to put people in categories to work — but we as Twitter users should probably do the opposite by resisting the impulse to think we understand what something like an RT or “Like” means and definitely not using those as heuristics. I can’t imagine a platform on which we’re more likely to misunderstand each other than Twitter.

(Posting here because while Twitter seems to be the worst for this, no platform is immune from this problem.)
