@CraigSilverman Kudos for debunking while preserving the jokes!

.@dougiegyro: FYI, @CraigSilverman knows all about the real data at my pinned tweet that shows how heavily Twitter censors *all* kinds of users (and that thus shows how Trump/Parscale are lying). It's valid, reproducible data, but for some odd reason Craig refuses to cover it.

.@WojtekGwiazda: I tried to get @CraigSilverman to cover the data at my pinned tweet exposing how heavily Twitter censors all kinds of users w/o luck. Now, Trump is going to make lying about that a Trump2020 plank. Trump won & will again because of those like Craig.

"Maybe we should expect algorithms to not violate human rights law" is the most depressing statement at #nicar19 so far

.@JaneLytv: hey Jane, @CraigSilverman knows all about the data at my pinned tweet showing how heavily Twitter censors all kinds of users. Maybe the two of you can work together to expose Twitter lying (via ghosting) to millions of their users. #nicar19

.@CraigSilverman: hey Craig, Twitter lies to millions of their users via ghosting. It's truly despicable behavior. Not only does Twitter ghost replies to Trump officials (many from libs), they also ghost replies from dissenters to foreign leaders. When will you call them on it?

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@jwherrman: you hilite @CraigSilverman 's #BuzzFeed study that says "channel reco algorithm pushes users to more fringe/extreme chans, like Alex Jones". Jones is a hoot. You two are dangerous lil' fascists. BF/NYT have never told the whole truth about things like immigration.

Centuries-old legal remedies (ie, libel suits) will take care of that. The solution you want is for Twitter to act as our nanny, deciding what we can see & the bounds of acceptable discourse. MT @CraigSilverman Misinformation on Twitter about shootings is getting worse

.@CraigSilverman: you blogged about #Twitter banning accounts around the world. They do that in USA too, via shadowbans. Use the checker app in my pinned tweet with a variety of accounts to see the games they play (use the "testing account" with Twitter's default settings).

Happy new years from me to you: "I helped popularize the term 'fake news' and now I cringe whenever I hear it" https://t.co/UMMMNjlSUH

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@CraigSilverman: at #Buzzfeed, you say you popularized #FakeNews, linking to @Snopes as if they're credible. #Snopes not only lied about "phantom cops" on New Orleans PD (after Katrina), they tried to cover it up.

Who'll fact check the fact checkers? MT @CraigSilverman Facebook says spread of fake news story drops 80% after fact checker labels it false

.@CraigSilverman: are Politifact & Snopes credible & always get things right? Why can't @mantzarlis say? http://24ahead.com/u/mantzarlis

.@CraigSilverman: #Facebook trusting Politifact, @Mantzarlis, Snopes, etc. is like if we trusted Trump to determine what's #FakeNews or true
