Cet article raconte la déconvenue de l'inventeur du bouton "retweet" devant son invention. Selon lui, en facilitant le partage de tweet dans sa propre TL, le bouton "retweet" a entraîné les attaques en meute et la diffusion virale rapide des infox ou des attaques.
(...)the button also changed Twitter in a way Wetherell and his colleagues didn’t anticipate. Copying and pasting made people look at what they shared, and think about it, at least for a moment. When the retweet button debuted, that friction diminished. Impulse superseded the at-least-minimal degree of thoughtfulness once baked into sharing. Before the retweet, Twitter was largely a convivial place. After, all hell broke loose — and spread.
