Quoted @okAakash

Tiktok shaming is classist. The real reason u don't like tiktok is not bcz 'oh the content is so bad' it's bcz u hate that someone who's not from ur social class now has means of self expression. You hate that you don't have the exclusivity of content creation anymore.

Have had to call out at least three people who claim to "know" digital and "get" content that to call TikTok cringeworthy shows how much you *don't* understand either in this country. I am in constant awe of TT creators, no lie. https://t.co/G3Hy5n9MVz

Misinformation has:
1. grown steadily, particularly after Janata Curfew
2. moved towards cultural issues

Don’t want to hear another friend saying billionaires will save the world from economic downfall by prolific giving, just to distract themselves from injustices happening around.

What is striking to me is that @jack and @Twitter and #MarkZuckerberg of @Facebook do not see how disturbing the rise of #COVID related #Islamophobia. But look at all of the related Islamophobic content that is connected to this one terrible hashtag. #StopCOVIDIslamophobia https://t.co/h0TdCtjMQ4

Modi's 8 PM bombshells lead to speculation. Misinformation exists because uncertainty exists. When surprise becomes strategy, rumour is our best relief. w/ @SyedaZainabA on why we are about to see a flood of misinformation, and how to recognize it https://t.co/QZ5nw0VAub

Crowdsourcing platforms and the gig economy have been around for a while. But are they accessible to all? Dr. Vivek Seshadri talks about how he’s addressing that with Project Karya in the latest episode of MSR India Podcast. Listen here: https://t.co/KfaLjvivp0

'is Amazon Prime, surely one of the pinnacles of human centred design, really a service operating in the best interest of their customers? There is no convenience on a dead planet'. From Human centred design considered harmful – Jussi Pasanen https://t.co/ooPlhWs7a6

‘By focusing only on humans, we frame out the rest of the living planet. Mountains, rivers, oceans, rivers, wildlife and other animals. The geosphere become irrelevant. If their destruction is required to improve the human experience, so be it.’ https://t.co/27GU9W9uaZ

I talked about the ‘politics of the interface’, and how we should de scale design @PuneDesignFest Questions about @PARInetwork Faces project were informed by multiple discussions with @KshamaNagaraja, and @praymurray @paulanthony_g among others. https://t.co/bn3MtFsgys

#AcademicTwitter Can anybody suggests podcast or easy to understand articles/journals on theory of Critical Political Economy of media and communication?

I tend to be cynical about the idea of Late Capitalism, but an Uber driver last night told me a story which made my jaw hit the floor. He picked me up, and apologised for the congestion. "You see all these cars, though? They're owned by the same person". (1/9)

India's ruling party used AI-generated Deepfakes videos for online election campaigning targeting 15 million people via 5800 WhatsApp groups; BJP Party candidate is seen saying things he never said, in a language he doesn't know. It's impossible to tell! https://t.co/eEG8ST0lGB

Creators on TikTok are presenting queer narratives in such an easy to understand way it's fascinating. It's definitely reaching a much much wider audience than ANY other social platform. Here's a thread of some of my favourite ones:
