How a surge in disinformation and radicalization could tank Twitter
Misinformation amplified by social media could have a big impact on the 2024 general election.
Disinformation experts Mike Rothschild and Amanda Moore explain how, in 2023, Twitter appears to be tanking, marked by a troubling leniency towards bad actors and harmful ideologies. This revival of intolerance risks flooding the platform with disinformation, conspiracy theories, and racism. The pair rebuke the notion that good speech will naturally counteract bad speech and note that unmoderated misinformation tends to proliferate rather than dissipate.
