Why does Midjourney use Discord?

According to Midjourney itself, they picked Discord because Discord is a community-focused product.

Midjourney’s founder, David Holz, told The Verge in an interview. “But people want to make things together, and if you do that on iOS, you have to make your own social network. And that’s pretty hard. So if you want your own social experience, Discord is really great.”
