Thoughts on words - possibly unpopular 

People think that "evolve" means to improve, and that simply by evolving the human race is getting better. The word means to change gradually, and humans are racing to the bottom. They are evolving, but not (necessarily) improving.

People also use the word "influencer" as if it means that people dubbed that are doing something good; they usually aren't. In most case headlines can swap in "idiot" for "influencer" and not change the meaning of the story.
