Your racist, syphilitic uncle who believes and retweets crazy conspiracy theories? No! It's the "president" of the USA! The guy who controls the world's largest nuclear arsenal!

Twitter labels Trump video tweet as manipulated media, continuing its crackdown on misinformation


The label marks the fourth time Twitter has added labels to the president’s tweets.

Twitter on Thursday evening took the rare step of appending a warning label to one of President Trump’s tweets after the company determined it violated its policies on manipulated media.

The president tweeted a doctored version of a popular video that went viral in 2019, which showed two toddlers, one black and one white, hugging. In the version Trump shared, the video has been edited with ominous music and a fake CNN headline that says, “Terrified toddler runs from racist baby.”

“Racist baby probably a Trump voter,” the headline then says in a subsequent screen.

[Would you trust someone this idiotic with a nuclear arsenal? Or even a bb gun?]

The video then cuts to the original clip of the children hugging, and then cuts to the message “America is not the problem. Fake news is.”

[The recursive irony, of course, is that the claim Fake news is a serious problem is in fact true. Hell, fake news fools the POTUS on a daily basis, so there's a good chance fake news will cause WWIII and the end of all life on Earth. That's a real problem.]

[And then there are the implications for media generally:]

The label is the latest flash point in an increasingly contentious debate over tech companies’ responsibility to police falsehoods and hoaxes spread by politicians on their platforms. It could worsen an already tense relationship between Silicon Valley and Trump, who has escalated his claims in recent weeks that social media titans are biased against conservatives.

Trump has also criticized the companies — particularly Twitter — for censoring him. Meanwhile, social media has become a major way he communicates with constituents, with more than 82 million followers on Twitter alone and missives that come day and night.

[This shit is deadly serious. For every one of us who laughs at bullshit like this, there are ten Trump followers who take it as absolute truth and who see it as another reason to arm themselves to the teeth and Kill the Liberal Elite! Destroy Antifa! For the Dear Leader! To wit:]

The video had received roughly 3.8 million views and more than 75,000 retweets at the time of Twitter’s label.

[What is to be done with a populace who have been conditioned to suspend all reason in favor of blindly following their Dear Leader? What does one do with a country when 40% of the voting populace belongs to a death cult?]

Und wieder ein krasses Fehlurteil: Abgeordnetenwatch hat vor dem Bundesverwaltungsgericht verloren. Sie wollten, dass der Bundestag offenlegen muss, wie er fragwürdigen Parteispenden nachgeht. Das absolute Mindesmaß an Transparenz! Und nicht mal das wollen sie. Ist ja auch klar. Die Leute, die das beschließen müssten, sind die Vorteilsnehmer der Parteispenden.

Wartet, die Punchline kommt noch:
Oberster Prüfer der Parteifinanzen ist der Bundestagspräsident (aktuell übrigens Wolfgang Schäuble, der selbst in einem Parteispendenskandal verwickelt war).
Was heißt hier "war"? Der Skandal ist nie ordentlich aufgeklärt worden!

Twitter is testing a new threaded conversation layout on iOS and the web | Engadget

Twitter has started testing a new threaded conversation layout that’s meant to make it more obvious who’s talking to whom. Based on the GIF posted by the Twitter Support account, the new layout makes use of lines and indentations to clearly indicate that a reply is meant for a specific tweet. As TechCrunch notes, it looks particularly useful for longer threads where participants go back-and-forth and where people post responses to several separate tweets.

Twitter is suspending 70 pro-Bloomberg accounts, citing ‘platform manipulation’

"Michael R. Bloomberg’s presidential campaign has been experimenting with novel tactics to cultivate an online following, or at least the appearance of one."

"But one of these strategies — deploying a large number of Twitter accounts to push out identical messages — has backfired. On Friday, Twitter began suspending 70 accounts posting pro-Bloomberg content in a pattern that violates company rules."

"'We have taken enforcement action on a group of accounts for violating our rules against platform manipulation and spam', a Twitter spokesman said. Some of the suspensions will be permanent, while in other cases account owners will have to verify they have control of their accounts."

Twitter rolling out new 'Continue thread' option for connecting multiple tweets together | 9to5Mac

Twitter is rolling out a new feature that makes it easier to thread multiple tweets together. With this change, you can now link tweets together while you compose them.

The company announced the new feature this afternoon. When you’re composing a new tweet, you can now slide up to view your previous tweets, including your most recent post as well as older ones. Once you pick an older tweet, you’ll see a “Continue thread” button.
The way you do this seems more complicated than just @replying to your own previous tweet. And there will still be people who won't use it (naming no Piers Morgans). And it might take a while for third-party apps to decide whether to implement it.
