ChatGPT4 spam will help the internet because companies will have to trade growth for trust

The really interesting thing is that the massive social networks like Twitter and Reddit are going to have to adapt in the same ways that smaller communities like Indie Hackers are adapting: they're going to have to get smaller by sacrificing growth for trust.

IDs, subscriptions, invite-only sign-ups, etc. I don't really see a way around it. And of course Twitter and the other platforms are already rolling these kinds of features out.

If these assumptions are correct, it might lead to a slightly more decentralized internet, since platforms like Twitter will be a little less powerful at amplifying people's messages. It's like a second stab at the world promised by the Web 3 enthusiasts.
