Twitter as One of the Worst Side-Effects of COVID-19

Episode Summary

Our new state of emergency illustrates exactly why Twitter taken seriously is bad for society. It's full of misinformation and low-word-count opinions passed around at the speed of RTs, it taints and replaces legitimate journalism, and it tempts scientists and politicians to further their individual brands instead of the truth. Any information propelled by a like mechanism should be immediately suspect. Mike and Jason just want to Twitter to focus on what it's best at: drunk tweets.
