The stupid fucking computer voice that's attached to tiktok videos is designed to be as annoying as possible. The voice is intentionally programmed to be obnoxious and grab your attention. Both facebook and tiktok and basically any other Big Social Media does this in different ways. They make their money by designing stimuli that gets under your skin and hooks into your brain.

@Anarkat Not just big (social) media... Our systems are designed to monetize attention, regardless whether the ones giving it get back any value.
