Nanny Twitter Strikes Again, Institutes New ‘Crisis Misinformation’ Policy – Opinion

Twitter is happy to see you smile and loves you.

Why else would they spend all this time and effort, at the expense of actual profit, to control what information you’re allowed to see and share?

It can’t be because they have an agenda. Jack Dorsey explained to us all that tweet doesn’t regulate speech based upon political affiliations or ideologies. Certainly Jack Dorsey wouldn’t lie to Congress!

However, just in case you’re out there doing crazy things like getting your own information and sharing things that haven’t yet been “contextualized” by our betters in Big Tech, Twitter has announced they’ll be rolling out yet another “misinformation” policy to help you morons think the right thoughts.

The Hill reports that Twitter’s new ‘crisis misinformation’ policy is geared toward stopping the spread of misinformation during a crises, like, for instance, the recent shootings in Buffalo.

Twitter announced Thursday a change in its approach to misinformation handling during crises. It will be more aggressive in targeting false accusations.

As soon as the platform has proof that a claim is misleading, it will end promoting and amplifying crisis content.

Twitter users who violate this policy will be given an interstitial warning, but they won’t immediately be deleted.

Twitter executives want to make sure that “misleading information” can’t do harm to the public trust. Public is supposed to trust the opinions of some bitter millennials, who spend four hours per week telling us which information is correct.

“In times of crisis, misleading information can undermine public trust and cause further harm to already vulnerable communities,” Yoel Roth, Twitter’s head of safety and integrity, wrote in a blog post.

“Alongside our existing work to make reliable information more accessible during crisis events, this new approach will help to slow the spread by us of the most visible, misleading content, particularly that which could lead to severe harms.”

The new policy defines crises as situations where there is “widespread threat to life, physical safety, health, or basic subsistence.”

Don’t you feel safer already?
