Even though the experiment may have been small, I personally see about 10-20 of those ads per DAY. Big instagram accounts are putting the same type of “omggg alt tiktok is moving to bytteeeee link in bio babezz” styled fake tweets at the tail end of every. Single. One. Of their meme post bundles.
It’s so invasive that I’ve seen other non-affiliated meme pages making fun of it. I can take screenshots and post em if you’d like, but its very, very invasive the way they’re advertising their own links.
Plus the way they have a shadowed “Ad” in the bottom right corner… Spammy looking IMO, idk
