I fucking hate twitter and so many other social media sites.

THIS is what one sees after Pussy-Grabber screams his fucking lies on Twitter. . . .

"This claim about election fraud is disputed. . ."

"Disputed"???? This sounds ike it's up for debate whether it's true or not, and we all know it's a goddamned lie on every level. Why can't they say at a bare, fucking minimum, "This claim about election fraud is FALSE"??????

2. I am so glad I have never had a twitter account and never will

I know I probably wouldn't last more than a couple of hours and they would likely suspend me.

3. A quote from Carl Sagan's "Demon Haunted World"

"The dumbing down of America is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30 second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance”

7. Published two and a half decades ago... It's only gotten worse.

Now every asshole has a media publishing device in their hand/pocket.

4. I love Twitter - you can choose who you follow

Where else can you have a dialogue with some of your favorite authors and get news in the making?

9. "you can choose who you follow"

Trumps tweets are forced upon us via news reports and even posted here on DU

All his lies basically spread

Some days half of OPs on DU are "link to tweet"

One does not get to choose freely with respect to twitter

5. Did you see those posts a few days ago that a study came out showing that

there was a statistically significant correlation with believing untrue things about covid if your main media source was one of the following 3: FOXNews, Twitter, and Facebook? Not exactly a surprise, but still...

(I may be phrasing that in an incorrect way, forgive me pedants, and feel free to provide the correct phrasing/interpretation)

6. I don't. We find out all kinds of

good news from Marc Elias for one example.

Twitter is What We Make of IT.
