Rarely I log into birdsite, to see what's happening with Greek reality (aka hashtags) and I can't believe how belittling and aggressive is the language used to express opinions in an absolute binary rhetoric (us against them). It's a mystery to me how users put up with such comms and keep using the platform.
ps. same with FB from what I hear from the few friends who still use it daily to discuss politics.
Speaking of, birdsite tests warnings to users, such as:
"“Heads up. Conversations like this can be intense.” Another prompt, which appears to be aimed at people making a reply, goes to greater lengths to calm down users and urges the tweeter to “look out for each other”, “remember the human”"
