The Popular pane is useless to anyone over the age of 17. Emerging
seems to simply be the inverse of Popular and is therefore equally
hopeless. Swipe over to Suggested and we’re finally getting
somewhere, save for the fact that the secret sauce of what makes
an artist “suggested” is completely opaque. I have no idea what I
should do to improve the algorithmic guidance or what the fuck
@beth_orton is doing in there.
Tellingly, you can’t get to a musician’s tweets from within the
app to decide whether you want to follow them based on the content
of their stream, you’re just supposed to follow all of your
favorite musicians and be in awe of their celebrity, I guess.
So he really likes it, I guess.
