😺 How to not sound like ChatGPT

PLUS: #CopyC(laude)ats!

Welcome, humans.

Caught a headline yesterday that read, “The Japanese government is planning to test an AI system to better detect wild bears.” Easily the headline of the year. Side note: if we have this type of technology, shouldn’t we be using it to find socks that disappear in the laundry?!

Here’s what you need to know about AI today:

  • How to write with ChatGPT (& avoid sounding like it).

  • Anthropic launched Claude Team, its version of ChatGPT Team.

  • Both Anthropic and Gemini now offer mobile apps!

  • CoreWeave just bagged $1.1B at a $19B valuation for its AI chips.

On the podcast: Was gpt2-chatbot actually GPT-5?, crazy internal Microsoft emails, and California’s new AI bill (Apple Podcasts, Spotify, YouTube).

How to spot ChatGPT writing, and how to avoid sounding like it.

You know that feeling when you read an email and can just kinda tell that it’s written by ChatGPT? Or when you draft an email with ChatGPT that just sounds too AI-y?

Yeah, us too.

It’s not all about the vibe—ChatGPT has its own style preferences, just like us.


We analyzed 327 comments from the Reddit thread “What’s your personal ‘tell’ word to identify ChatGPT-generated text?” to break down ChatGPT’s linguistic quirks.

Here are some giveaways:

  • Unnecessary conclusions.

  • Bullet point lists that run 8-10 items long.

  • Excessive adjectives, like "greatly reduced" instead of simply "reduced".

  • Frequent use of specific words/phrases such as "streamline", "tapestry", and "delve".

ChatGPT loves using “delve” so much that the # of research papers featuring “delve” has exploded since 2002. Coincidence? I think not…

For those who often draft emails or documents using ChatGPT, one handy feature of ChatGPT Plus’ new Memory option is telling it to skip words/phrases that scream AI:

Another tip: For any writing you do frequently, consider training ChatGPT/Claude on samples of your style—here’s a handy prompt you can use for this:

Claude announces new updates that ChatGPT already has.

Yesterday, Anthropic launched its Team Plan—a way for teams of 5+ to use all of Claude’s models with more allowed chats and a context window of 200K (= ~500 pages of content).

If Claude Team rings a bell, well, it’s cause OpenAI launched essentially the exact same thing with ChatGPT Team in January. #CopyC(laude)ats!

As usual, ChatGPT Team offers a slightly better package:

  • access to GPTs.

  • dedicated workspace.

  • only a 2-person team minimum

  • voice features.

Claude’s secret weapon is its context limit, which lets you summarize and “talk” to ~500 pages of content. In contrast, ChatGPT Team supports just 32K tokens, or ~50 pages.

P.S. In the coming weeks, look out for new Claude Team features like integrations with data repositories such as CRMs and codebases, along with more citations to verify Claude’s outputs.

P.P.S. Anthropic launched an iOS app for Claude—download it here!

Around the Horn.

  • CoreWeave, a startup leasing AI chips in data centers, secured $1.1B at a $19B valuation, placing it among the globe’s most valuable AI startups.

  • Google urged the Department of Labor to revise immigration laws or risk the U.S. losing AI talent.

  • An internal email revealed that Microsoft invested in OpenAI partly because it was “very, very worried” about falling behind Google.

  • Google has cut the costs of displaying AI-generated search answers by 80% over the past year.

  • Quickstart: How to Add Slash Commands to your Custom GPT ("/made for beginners!").

Thursday Trivia.

Adobe's newest image model, Firefly 3, has reportedly enhanced its photorealism capabilities (think making AI seem real). How long until dating apps are flooded with bogus accounts where everyone's a 10/10? Oh wait, that’s already a thing…

One glance, everyone knows the rules: one image is AI-generated, and the other is real.

Which is which?
