Twitter Corrects a Trump Tweet With an Addendum

Summary:
Felix_Mish21 hrsThis reminds me of High School when Civics teachers would set up scenarios in which we kids would argue vehemently, without awareness, against the 1st amendment. We all want those we disagree with to be silenced. For the truth. Or for the good of the people. Or to stop pedophiles. Or terrorists. Or whatever. Is Twitter a common carrier or is it their responsibility to ensure that no one yells "Fire" in a their theater? "Fire", of course, could be anything you and I and all our crowd naturally think is dangerous bunk. Of course, of course. Saying such things is beyond the pale. I think Twitter goofed here. But, then, I'm a 1st amendment type. I have no problem with the Ben Franklins of the world setting up post offices that carry information Franklin and the post office

The world in saturated with edited content. And, there are plenty of other AI tasks just as fun and more useful to do. So why should Twitter people bother with this one?

Too, Twitter's "fact check" system will become a focal point. That seems tangential to their business and, maybe, their culture.

Perhaps Twitter should allow organizations to filter and modify Twitter feeds viewed by the organization's customers. That way such customers could enhance the strength and security of their bubbles!
