Birdsite's whole 'Peoole react to X talking about Y' is just corporate Twitter embracing the toxic dog pile mentality that envelops the whole platforn.

Lots of "journalists" use the idea of "the internet reacting" to something to shoehorn specific agendas and tell you how to think.

Example: "Biden just said all opposition parties should be jailed, here's how the internet reacted"

Then they cherry pick a few blue check mark statements that agree, and a few tweets that are funny to pile on.

"Well, that's what the internet thinks, so I guess I better agree! 🤷‍♂️ "
