Introducing Racket Chat
Taking a break from working on today’s piece to introduce a new subscriber feature. It’s called Racket Chat.
This is a new space in the Substack app where we can talk, ask each other questions, get into (friendly) debates, what have you. It’s currently just for those of us with iPhones, but Android and web versions are reportedly imminent. Substack corporate insists this feature is not a direct response to a certain reactionary troll-loving plutocrat’s takeover of Twitter, though it could be an interesting alternative once it gets off the ground. Will it work? Who knows! Let’s find out together.
I’ve just started the first thread. So please, join in. Here’s the official skinny on how to get started:
Subscribe to the Racket if you somehow haven’t yet:
Download the Substack app by clicking this link or the button below. Chat is only on iOS for now, but chat is coming to the Android app soon:
Open the app and tap the Chat icon. It looks like two bubbles in the bottom bar, and you’ll see a row for my chat inside.
That’s it! Jump in, say hi, and if you run into any problems check out Substack’s FAQ.
