15. I didn't explain that well.

I mean that, when he is impeached, the public will be looking for accomplices. It will be easy to blame Twitter for "allowing" him to tweet obvious lies. I'm saying that, in the aftermath of impeachment, the witch hunt/blame game that ensues will include Twitter. This is guilt by association. Look at what is being said about the responsibility of the main stream media in reporting on tRump's lies. A lot of people on DU are fed up with main stream media. It's a small step from MSM to social media. I would argue that in a web 2.0 environment, social media must behave more in accordance to the dominant social trends than main stream media. Maybe I'm wrong. It just seems like this would be the case.
