How the annual review of events on YouTube began a civil war

 3r33150. You might decide that a reliable way to make a hit video for YouTube is to collect a bunch of megastars YouTube, make a video of how they rant about the most popular topics of the year, and release the result as an annual review of events.
 3r33150.
 3r33150. And you would be mistaken.
 3r33150.
 3r33150. A couple of weeks ago, YouTube tested this theory by releasing the annual YouTube retrospective Rewind. The eight-minute video was crammed with YouTube-related meta-humor, YouTube star references (Ninja! The Try Guys! Bongo Cat!) And familiar stars (Will Smith! Trevor Noah! John Oliver!). The video was cleverly produced and looked solid, mentioned the popular game Fortnite, popular video formats and sang praise to the diversity and inclusiveness of YouTube.
 3r33150. ranking G 3r3126. can understand. Advertisers are suspicious of the platform since last year’s disclosure of the fact that UT algorithms put some commercials in videos containing extremist materials, racist content and hate speech texts. This has led some advertisers to
stopped advertising 3r3126. on UT. After that, the service tightened the rules of monetization, limited the set of videos that can make money through advertising, which caused a new conflict with the authors, who called it “adpokalipsis”[от (ad)vertisement — реклама].
 3r33150.
 3r33150. It is also natural that UT avoids advertising authors with controversial creativity. Paul, with 18 million subscribers and one of the most famous YouTube, spent most of the year smoothing his guilt for 3r-397. unsuccessful episode 3r3126. in which he removed a corpse hanging from a tree in the Japanese "suicide forest". Kjelberg, with more than 76 million subscribers, is constantly criticized for his behavior in front of the camera, including 3r399. Nazi jokes
and the exaltation of r3r3101. anti-semitic channels
UT.
 3r33150.
 3r33150. Swearing between the service and its authors is not a new phenomenon. However, disputes over Rewind are a signal of larger problems of UT, trying to present itself in the form of a stronghold of cold-blooded and inclusive creativity, despite the fact that he is accused of 3–3–3107. radicalization 3r3126. generations of young people whom he allegedly pushes towards ever more extreme content, allowing reactionary fanatics and amateurs conspiracy theories dominate the platform.
 3r33150.
 3r33150. Attempts of UT are complicated by the fact that the service actually has a lot of diverse and interesting authors making exciting videos. However, these voices can hardly be heard behind the roar of the most odious figures. On YouTube, Rewind did not mention Alex Jones, the founder of the Infowars website on[и не только]conspiracy theories. that created an empire for UT with millions of subscribers, whose videos scored more than 1.6 billion views. Nobody mentioned the political YouTube group that makes up “3-33115. Alternative influence network 3-33-36.”, As Rebecca Lewis from the Data Research Institute and Society calls it — a cohort of video authors who use them to promote radical right ideas.
 3r33150.
 3r33150. Last year, UT made excellent attempts to clean up the platform. This summer service banned alex jones for hate speech,[не всё так однозначно /прим. перев.]and tried to make video related to conspiracy theories, did not fall into the sections of the popular .
 3r33150.
 3r33150. However, people like Kjelberg and Paul - the stars that have gained popularity thanks to UT, and still collecting tens of millions of views a month - maintain dysfunctional relationships with the platform. UT does not want to encourage their behavior, promoting their videos officially, but at the same time does not want to quarrel with their large and passionate audiences. And since other platforms cannot boast of such large audiences and earning potential, they are stuck in unpleasant purgatory, and make offended videos about how unfairly UT dealt with them, while trying not to cross the line beyond which they can be banned or not give them money to make videos.
 3r33150.
 3r33150. This tense relationship - between the image of the service, which is building up a supportive and tolerant space and the people behind the most popular content of the platform - is at the center of disputes about YouTube Rewind. If UT tried to create the right picture representing the most popular faces of the service, he would have to include fanatics, reactionaries and young fans of humor on the edge of the video. A review of past events at UT, which included only a demonstration of tolerance and pluralism, resembles a sample of frames from a meteorological show, where only clear days are shown. It is possible to look at it more pleasantly, but it does not convey the real state of the weather.
 3r33150.
 3r33150. There is nothing wrong with UT showing in the summing-up of the year a video of the good work done on the platform. It is a pity that for this the platform has to cut out a large part of its history from the script. Perhaps, instead of trying to please everyone next year, the service will have to become more similar to how he presented himself in the review video of this year - as a platform, which he clearly wants to become. 3r3146. 3r33150. 3r33150. 3r33150. 3r3143. ! function (e) {function t (t, n) {if (!
