I mean, do you disagree?

You saw something on twitter that you thought was accurate/relevant and then without fully understanding it or attempting to verify, you turned around and posted it on another medium.

If you're doing it, so are countless others.

I didn't argue that twitter has zero influence so I think your point is irrelevant.

Also, people are wrong sometimes, pretty much across the spectrum.

Oh come on man, argue in good faith. I didn't say you said it had ZERO impact, but you seem to keep minimizing the impact as if it's statistically insignificant.

I didn't say you said I said that either.

Your post is about whether or not Twitter can spread disinformation, of course it can.

My post was about the platforms available to those you say spread disinformation and that it pales in comparison to party leadership and more center leaning sources. Overall, twitters influence is small compared to other sources, then, the users you are upset with also have less influence then the counter.

Therefore your question/point is irrelevant to my point.

If I had said some 'big twitter users' or something would that be better? BJG and RK aren't nobodies on Twitter, but they aren't massive either.

And you and TGL keep refuting that twitter misinformation or very loud progressive voices/rose twitter kept people at home in 2016.

And no, I really don't mean to keep shitting on progressives or the people that stayed home in 2016. It's in the past, nothing can change it.

But you need to recognize it's a fucking huge problem and work to overcome it in 2022.

I don't think it affected the election results in a meaningful way, that's true.

But if you think it's a huge problem, whose responsibility is it to solve it?

now you’re conflating two very different things

I’ve never argued that misinformation isn’t a problem. I simply said that the progressive twitter accounts that you’ve railed against don’t have that much of an influence.

It has enough influence to get rwoody to post inaccurate stuff.

You really don't think it has enough influence to keep a very small portion of the population home or to vote third party in 2016?

How you guys feel about this article about the "fortification" effort? LOL. No conspiracy here! LOL. I honestly couldn't believe they actually admitted it like it was noble. I don't think there was widespread fraud, but the deamplifation of some stories and people and the amplification of others definitely played a huge role... and both sides were ready to try to overturn the other.

It's so weird. Since 75% of people didn't know shit about politics before Trump came along, they don't realize how many lawyers are on standby after elections, and all sorts of stuff. Then CNN tells them that the Republicans are doing something unprecedented and they lap it up. LOL

A post in May in the Democratic Party credibility thread. He posted a random Twitter about Senator Whitehouse calling for an investigation on Kavanaugh with the obvious implication it was current and a new story.

I don't care that he was wrong, I didn't give him shit for it then and won't know. It's the fact that you two don't think it's in the realm of possibility that progressive voices on Twitter, bots amplifying those voices, or just plain misinformation couldn't have kept 80k people home in 2016.

Also I'll say i was at least contextually wrong about the Clarence Thomas thing the other day. I think some non Twitter 'respectable' news sources initially took that stance at first too though. But maybe I'm full of shit there in offer zero proof

Yeah, there was some absolutely clickbait journalism with that

And look how tgl reacted when I pointed out that Thomas was just stating the case and that the point was technically correct. I got accused of holding water for the shitbag.

..

It's in the realm of possibility, so are 20 other things.

If that swung the election and is a huge problem, I'm curious how the party plans to address it.

anything is in the realm of possibility if you don’t have the data to support your claim

forgive me for not giving the benefit of the doubt to a religious radical who happens to sit on the Supreme Court

Texas doesn't take kindly to a candidate that doesn't have family values. It's why they overwhelmingly voted for Clinton and Biden in the last two presidential elections.
