    I just don't get Twitter, why does such mundane stuff get so much circulation, it's like if 7000 IQfyners were sharing some dudes incel rant

      If someone sees that 700 people have liked or upvoted a commented they're more likely to like or upvoted that comment, and the more likes a comment gets the more people it's shown to. There's no reflexion of anything.

      I mean, incels here unironically do that too. Haven't you seen screencaps circulate the internet?
      What I hate is the unholy mix that these threads represent. It's like the life wasting banality of one compounds over the life wasting stupidity of the other and you get served a double layered devil of absolute moronation willing you to go ahead, just think of the perfect reply to this stupid-ass thread, imagine exactly what the Taylor Swift equivalent to literature is, someone so vapid only the actual golems of the population relate to...oh right it's BAP.

        It's the circulation within the platform that makes it weird. In a given incel thread there's at most 100 unique IPS and then they pass around the "best of" screenshots in other threads. I don't think anyone is going to screenshot this and repost it on Twitter because it's so mundane but within the platform it's somehow worth sharing thousands of times. I know I'm kind of begging the question here and that I think it's just more parasocial shit.

          Social media as we understand it today is based on this idea of engagement. It's not so much parasocial acknowledgement (that's reserved for the celebs) as it is the vague idea of the ego reflected in the other for the eternity of the interwebs because this, in itself, placates the ego. Narcissus and all that. What makes these kind of posts circulate is that free "sis she just like me fr fr" dopamine hit of vapid interconnection.

            But that kind of connection is just normal social interaction, I guess it's sad that young people can't find someone in real life to discuss a billboard top 20 artist with and have to go online to create a simulation of that event.

            One doesn't have to. And it's not the stimulation from a single person, it's the attention of thousands, seen or unseen.

            It's a small hit of self-reassurance. A reaffirmation that yes, they belong, the world is just like them and their brain likes that. Social conformity, safety!

      Now try Japanese Twitter. Where accounts that do nothing but say they're on their way to McDonalds or how good it is to have a beer after work and other mundane daily activities have thousands of followers who make the same kind of posts and themselves have thousands of followers.

        Sometimes, they also sit down and draw some absolutely filthy porn that isn't paywalled behind fanbox or show off their hairless bodies and weirdly hairy genitals. It's a kind of game they play.

        japanese internet in general was neutered by increasing laws against being an butthole on the internet. Not because the laws are even really enforced (they aren't) but because they don't want to engage in illegal/criminal activity. it's just a completely different mentality.
        they're so much nicer, more neutral and more boring than they were 10 years ago.

      It gets circulation because it's mundane. Things don't get attention because they're deep to one person but because they hit the mark for many people. Things necessarily have to be generic.

      I found out Twitter is pay to play. Pay for blue + premium, etc and don't tweet 'banned' topics then you'll get ranked better in the timeline. The topics that get you listed lower include politics, crypto, swear words, etc.

        I think the Quixote would also work, possibly Rabelais. But then you end up with dichotomies that divide men more than unify them. Some dudes are utterly humorless, some mistake what they do for thinking; they all start getting roasted by the time you get to the latin writers and into the italians, long before the novelists.

    I have never met a black swiftie. I have never met an asian swiftie. I have met a few latina swifties. I have met very few wigger swifites.
    So tell me then, what is it about the kiddle class white woman that makes them so insufferably narcissistic? I don't feel like this is endemic of womankind, I have met many women of all races from different walks of life and most have been pleasant. But there is something about the middle class white woman, there is just something in that bourgeois head of theirs, that absolutely peeves me off

        To elucidate, men will identify with just about anything ostensibly male and project the role onto themselves, even in play as children. They emulate.

        Women, by and large, only identify with the Barbie that looks like them and use the character as a stand-in for themselves, Anything outside of their small window of wants makes them dysphoric. It gets more fricked up the deeper you go.

    I for one agree with OP. I my experience reading Ulysses, Bloom ans Stephen are two characters that capture the male experience in a wholesome way. They both spoke to me and I could relate almost all different periods of my life to their way of being in various ways. What he doesn't capture is the dread, extreme anxiety and anger and temptation to inflict violence inherit to the male spirit. They're both pacifistic and anti-nationalist, which obviously doesn't cover a large percent of war mongering males ready to go to war because of boredom and lack of purpose.

      I thought Buck Mulligan was much more relatable than both Bloom and Stephen, but I'm not homosexual, so what do I know about the homosexual experience.

    whenever you hear someone claim that a celebrity, author etc "put what i was already feeling into words," they are bullshitting you and most likely themselves. what happened was the b***h heard a taylor swift lyric and liked it enough to incorporate it into her own personality/personal branding, that's it. the "it was always there DEEP INSIDE MY SOUL" thing is just cope. same with a male dork reading some entry level book and declaring the protag/author is "literally him." you're literally nothing, that's why you're so hungry for other people's thoughts to define you.
