Twitter to remove ‘like’ tool in a bid to improve the quality of debate

Twitter is planning to remove the ability to “like” tweets in a radical move that aims to improve the quality of debate on the social network.

Founder Jack Dorsey last week admitted at a Twitter event that he was not a fan of the heart-shaped button and that it would be getting rid of it “soon”.

The feature was introduced in 2015 to replace “favourites”, a star-shaped button that allowed people to bookmark tweets to read later.

Similar buttons to “like” or show appreciation of people’s status updates, pictures and videos have become a central function of every popular social media service since Facebook introduced them.

But psychologists have suggested that they may be causing social media addiction among users who crave endorsement from their peers. It has led to a trend where young people will tweet or share something on Instagram and Facebook but will delete it if they have not received enough “likes” shortly after.

“Courage can be developed. But it cannot be nurtured in an environment that eliminates all risks, all difficulty, all dangers. It takes considerable courage to work in an environment in which one is compensated according to one’s performance. Most affluent people have courage. What evidence supports this statement? Most affluent people in America are either business owners or employees who are paid on an incentive basis.”— Dr. Thomas Stanley

The problem with most people’s lives is that they are being shielded from the consequences of their behavior. There’s little to no accountability.

The fastest way to make success inevitable in your life is to only do work that is incentive-based. Only do that which you are rewarded and punished for the quality of your work. Everything you do needs to matter to the outcomes, consequences, and results you get in life.

What is an example of something true that nobody generally wants to admit?

“Success is procured from sabotaging someone else’s happiness.”

Getting a job for you means no job for someone else, getting a Top tier college seat for you leaves many of your own friends jealous and unhappy. Robots’ invention left common laborers jobless. Success of Flipkart, Amazon, Walmart, and Reliance took away the ownership of countless small scale businessmen.

  • “It felt like a mob. The mob wasn’t in any way self-aware or coordinated — but it still felt like a single driven thing.”
  • “it was over my own software and a mistake”
  • “The mob never apologized. Mobs never do.”
  • “For a long time after everyone forgot.”
  • “So I’m thinking about whether or not to stay.”

2009年,作者因为自己写的软件里有一两个错误而在 Twitter 上招到网络暴力,他甚至考虑推出科技圈,不编程了。网络暴徒们其实不会持久地喷你,他们很快会有新的攻击对象,很快会忘掉你的。

只要你有一定的关注度,比如你的微博账号开始有几千个粉丝了,必然要招到别人毫无理由的辱骂。有人喜欢你,肯定有人讨厌你。这是一个 package,好的坏的都得一起接受。别问我是怎么知道的:)经验之谈啊~
