I suspect this is an AI generated blogpost.

Yes, another post from the same "author": https://blog.snodgrass.xyz/posts/generating-fact-based-artic...

It definitely feels a little formulaic, however I wonder if that wasn't just the author's attempt at brevity while following a list of points.

the flaw here is that PoW is helpful for stopping spam but doesn't encourage or incentivize the retention of data. maybe that's ok to not keep around old "tweets"

It kind of reminds me of HashCash (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hashcash) but applied to a twitter-like network. Kind of a neat idea.
