The enshittification of academic social media

The Thesis Whisperer on social media for academics – and why it may be a good idea to step away:

Telling academics they can achieve career success by using today’s algorithmic-driven platforms is like telling Millennials they could afford to buy a house by eating less avocado on toast. It’s a cruel lie because social media is a shit way to share your work now.

Not a little bit shit either. Very shit.
