Today, I wanted to respond to a twitter tweet which I think contains words which are historically and factually incorrect.
Twitter would not let me comment on the original tweet but it stated that I could "retweet."
When I attempted to do so, twitter put up a message which prevented the retweet until I clicked another link indicating that I stll wanted to retweet.
When I posted my refutation of the tweet which I quoted, twitter will not display the tweet that I am refuting until someone clicks "view."
I am not motivated by a desire to spread the misinformation but by a desire to refute it. Twitter's approach to this situation is irritating to me and in my opinion the wrong way to deal with misinformation. I would appreciate reading responses with regards to twitter's policy both from those who think twitter's method is graceful and from those who think that it is clumsy and klutzy.
I am not soliciting a discussion of my tweet on this platform, if you desire to respond to my tweet please do so on twitter.
