This is another possible outcome: rather than Twitter decentralizing because it becomes a protocol, Twitter decentralizes because of unbundling and defection. Quite possible we see more left-wing Gabs, Parlers, and Truth Socials arise, like Tribel. t.co/HfM5XLq8a0

Personally, I’m more bullish on tech-focused communities like @farcaster_xyz and pseudonymous communities like @poasterapp than I am on communities born mainly out of political warfare. Does the community have a positive mission, or just a negation?

In my view, this is a win for the world even if not a win for Twitter. There wouldn’t be one central forum anymore that the US establishment can just censor with a keystroke. There’s less mimesis, more innovation. And…more chaos. Then we gradually, consensually recentralize. t.co/2IMmICWdsn

This…but for Twitter? t.co/GfH39i9LFK

Protocolification would aid the unbundling of Twitter greatly, of course, while ensuring the platform actually monetizes that unbundling. The option still remains… t.co/ga3qxpnGQM
