huge platforms have the tendency to bring out the worst because of their size. There's no way for someone who's fairly normal with fairly normal interests to stand out amidst a bunch of other people with fairly normal interests.

What grabs people's attention are stunts- vitriolic rage, expressing extremist views, and other extreme behaviors. So sites become millions engaging in further and further behavior for attention.
