Ooohh what are the YouTube conspiracies???
less of conspiracies and more …straight up facts tbh & im too Tired™ to explain rn but maybe i will eventually ?
but basically youtube as a corporation is incredibly powerful, and has a lot of power over creators and while it used to be a site where people could be themselves and make a living with whatever videos they make that people organically want to watch, it is becoming much like TV networks where creators are praised for “family friendly” / politically neutral content and punished for anything else. & dnp are smart guys who see this happening and have decided that they’re gonna try to stay on youtubes good side (pandering to young audiences, avoiding controversy, following trends) in order to keep maximizing their profit & to stay relevant.
not to say it’s a bad thing that they’re doing it, but i think it’s important to realize they aren’t doing the same stuff on youtube that they were doing at the start. they’re very produced and scripted and censored now, and we can’t even know the extent to which higher forces influence their content, and to me it all just feels very unsettling.
