“Shitposting is the highest form of consciousness”: a startup from the USA has developed an educational meme platform
Startup Antimatter spoke about the launch of a platform on which teachers and students can create educational memes. Jonathan Libov, the founder of the firm, said the idea came to him after he spoke with a friend who works as a high school teacher. The teacher said that he constantly uses memes in the classroom, because students often remember information from them much better.
In order to create good shitposts, you need to understand the subject. So in a sense, shitposting is the highest form of consciousness.

After that, Libov and his team of four people created the first version of the Antimatter service. The startup successfully conducted a closed beta testing, which included the participation of teachers. As Libov noted, they have created a convenient platform for creating memes, primarily aimed at teachers, schoolchildren and students.
Teachers can create a group for their class on the Antimatter platform and invite students there. On the site, students can discuss past classes, including with the help of memes, as well as rate the created images, thereby forming a rating.
Antimatter is free to use. The developers of the site have added at least a few dozen templates to it to create popular memes.
