With almost 400 million users on Twitter it should come as no surprise that it is actually a pretty good measure for understanding societal interactions and implications as a whole.

A thought experiment.
You can say whatever you want but just like in real life, there are consequences.

If you lie you will be called out on it.
If you are hateful you will be shown the door.

In 2020, the platform decided that you had to be civil in order to provide value to their platform.
They made some difficult choices but realized in order to preserve the platform that was exactly what needed to be done.

Fast forward to today where pandora's box has been opened yet again - and look to today's political discourse.

It is blatantly apparent that civility

This is a utterly impressive and remarkable ad. It’s really well done, timing, pace, frames, triggers - fully on point. And effective.

1/ But it does strike me as an in-group ad - motivating to vote. What do you think?
2/ Don’t get me wrong, amazing work. But as an old woman whose family came here from Weimar Germany, I can’t help but remember that it’s never pro- or opponents, but the conformist / establish / passive majority which gives permission to authoritarians, or not.
3/ This kind of format, visuals, pacing, I would love to see that with an explainer part on how our economy is under threat, how the threat plays PR while preying on what enables us to secure our rights.

What would you consider effective for out-group targeting?

Control. That is what the so-called "Freedom" loving GOP is running on. They simply want CONTROL but they call it Freedom. There is nothing else they want. What else do they run on? Election fraud? Womens rights? Patriotism? Being Christian? Oh well, allow me: #tuesdayfiction
So, election fraud right? Well, let me tell you what the GOP has done with their control over THAT. They have accused Dems of stealing an election all while getting themselves arrested for trying to....steal elections. #VoteBlueForSoManyReasons…
Not enough? Oh well, lets continue.
They want control SO BAD they apparently sat and watched as many bad procedural cop shows as they could and tried to hold a repairman at gun point to prove a non-existent voter fraud. Why? Well, to get CONTROL back of course. #Vote

I asked, for you, if they sell brains at Walmart, the answer is ❝NO.❞ You will probably have to go to a vintage store. Good luck with that, you're welcome.

How did President Trump earn his PERSONAL INCOME in 2017? Oh, HE WAS PRESIDENT, you Nimrod.

What did he DO with his monthly Presidential SALARY? Oh, wait... he DONATED it, to the military, if memory serves (it does, BTW).

He separated himself from the family ❝R.E. (that's short for Real Estate, #idit)❞ business(es), and when you're talking about income tax...
3/#'re talking about an "individual," so his INCOME was ZERO.

Corporate taxes? Totally separate and I'm pretty certain THAT is what you're attempting to refer to. So do your own frikk'n research on Trump Ent., or #WTF ever it's called, then delete your account.

#EspionageAct [doesn’t] mention classification at all. It talks about a specific type of information: national defense… The real question is, why would Trump WANT to declassify secrets that could harm the U.S.?”

“Trump has still not said a word of explanation as to why he took the documents, why he did not return them all, and what he was doing with them for over 18 months.” @AWeissmann_
