In surrealist artist Paul Klee’s The Twittering Machine, the bird-song of a diabolical machine acts as bait to lure humankind into a pit of damnation. Leading political writer and broadcaster Richard Seymour, argues that this is a chilling metaphor for our relationship with social media. Social media professionals tell us that the system is an addiction-machine. We are users, waiting for our next hit as we like and share.Through journalism, psychoanalytic reflection and insights from users, developers and security experts, Seymour probes the human side of the machine, asking what we’re getting out of it, and what we’re getting into.
