    Twitter has a rule buried deep in the terms that users are not allowed to lie. So everything must be true.

    Twitter outsources the fact verification to Facebook who outsource their fact checking to Reddit who relies on What’s App who fact checks their feeds with Twitter.

    twitter isn’t even an accurate representation of America, it’s just a bunch of bots and a few approved accounts.

    What’s scary is that back in the day, tabloids were laughed at, and people that believed what was in them were also laughed at. Social media makes me wish for the return of the tabloids. At least no one believed that garbage. With social media, something way beyond the pale is called true just because it’s on social media.

    This is why I’m a genius. I stay off the Twitter and its fellow social media platforms. Makes your life so much happier.

    I remember the commercial on TV in which the young lady had a date with a “French Model” she met on the internet, because if she saw it on the internet, it must be true. I can still hear the “French Model” greeting her with “bone jerwer.”

    Social media summarized in four easy panels. Sidenote: why is Pig saying “the Twitter” like the Crocs saying “da Google”?

    Pretty much the way the last election was decided. Without looking it up, can anyone tell me Joe Biden’s et al’s platform? Not hating, just asking to prove a point. We need to think for ourselves and ignore social media and biased news agencies (on both sides) when making an important choice.

    “…the Twitter.” Is Pig from the South, where they also say “the Walmart” and “the Piggly Wiggly”?

    Do not believe anything you read on social media, Pig. Chances are that it’s either false, out of context, or mean-spirited. Trolls infect the internet!
