My name is Tristan Hotham, I am a researcher and writer. I research social media and politics, I consult upon digital media’s impact upon the world and how to research social media. I am the Founder of the Social Media Research Centre, a research house and consultancy that seeks to make social media research better.
Twitter Fleets are not necessary, nobody on the network was calling for them, and their implementation shows that Twitter has more interest in following the crowd than genuinely innovating. Instead, what we now have is social networks innovating from a position of desperation, focused on ‘keeping up with the Joneses’.
I have created a Substack page – it will examine social media and politics. There will be free content as well as bespoke insights published only for paid subscribers. It is all about social media and digital politics.
