having spent some time on Threads, i actually think it will be successful. its success though isn’t in anything that Nostr is trying to achieve. instead, Threads seems to be focused on a conversation around influencers (celebrity and NFT promoters) the same way that twitter (used to) be a conversation around news and the journalists reporting on it. in fact, this seems to be a secular trend of fracturing of social media platforms generally that probably has been ongoing since the rise of facebook. where twitter used to be all-purpose, it’s now: Twitter: laggards and Musk loyalists Bluesky: journalists and liberals Nostr: bitcoiners and cypherpunks Threads: influencers (celebrities, NFTs) Farcaster: ethereans Truth social, Gab: qAnon, MAGA, xenophobia i think this is the new normal for social media. RIP the general purpose platform.

100% - i see this a lot from contrarian “experts” who have a psychological need to feel cancelled and counter-cultural.

i don’t know for sure why the note was removed. possibly it was just community notes working as intended, perhaps it was elon protecting his interests in China. elon has certainly acted to remove specific community notes in the past. the point is the same either way: even the appearance and possibility of corruption make it untenable for a company to be a public square.
