Newsworthy and of Public Interest

So you basically admit here that Twitter exercises editorial judgement, in a subjective fashion, based around “newsworthiness” or public interest. So this will basically be an uneven application of its rules. Color me unsurprised.

Inventors of radio business models in the 20s, up through pre-social modern media in the 2000s, didn’t all gleefully enable hate-spreading propaganda in the Western World. Someday, long in the future, if things don’t change Twitter will be judged for doing just that.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
