Really enjoying the meta influencers 😅

Whether the meme accounts, pseudonymous thread accounts, or the top-level pretty grids with a carousel of memes beneath them, I think we're seeing this grungy push-back all over the place. My favorite is the cyborg-esque, glossy, webpunk filters. Hopeful!

Great @TaylorLorenz piece from April that captures the self-deprecating humor and unpolished Emma Chamberlain wave.  https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2019/04/influencers-are-abandoning-instagram-look/587803/
