I, Too, am Tired of Claps
Claps don’t tell the truth
We’ve gotten too cozy again with the ways of how things work on the platform — specifically, the clapping economy and the ego boost of writers. Let’s be honest for a minute; claps tell us something about the way a piece performs. Please allow me to retract that, and say we make judgments about the performance of a piece based on the amount of applause it receives.
