BREAKING: Twitter Unveils CENSORSHIP ALGORITHM That Could CENSOR CONSERVATIVES By Labeling Them "Misinformation" And Providing "Context"

By John Paluska, Founder of The Daily Fodder 

Twitter, the "unbiased" platform that censored President Trump 625 times while allowing Iranian Guard Corps accounts and Al Jazeera's anti-Semitic holocaust assertions to go largely unfettered, posted in a blog that they are releasing a new program called "BIrdwatch" which will let users flag what they call "fake news" and provide "notes" that appear on the tweet that explain on why it's fake.

The program is in "pilot mode" right now, and the notes will appear on a separate site until the algorithm learns how to provide "context" to them. As Twitter's blog stated:

Birdwatch allows people to identify information in Tweets they believe is misleading and write notes that provide informative context. We believe this approach has the potential to respond quickly when misleading information spreads, adding context that people trust and find valuable. Eventually we aim to make notes visible directly on Tweets for the global Twitter audience, when there is consensus from a broad and diverse set of contributors.

In this first phase of the pilot, notes will only be visible on a separate Birdwatch site. On this site, pilot participants can also rate the helpfulness of notes added by other contributors. These notes are being intentionally kept separate from Twitter for now, while we build Birdwatch and gain confidence that it produces context people find helpful and appropriate. Additionally, notes will not have an effect on the way people see Tweets or our system recommendations.

The Birdwatch site has no notes on real tweets for the public yet, but considering the idea launched yesterday, it shouldn't take long. Especially since they already have the basic so-called "smoothness score" that will rank responses from least to most helpful.

In explaining this "smoothness score" they write that a "helpful" note:

Is concise

Uses easy to understand and simple language

Cites source from reputable publication, which has robust information on the topic

Twitter does not explain what a "reputable publication" is, but considering they censored the New York Post, one can bet it won't include a lot of reputable conservative outlets. However, it is ultimately users who upvote and downvote birdwatches until the program has an "understanding" of what is considered helpful or unhelpful notes.
