The block and mute button are wonderful tools for grown adults on the internet who understand individual responsibility. When someone makes meanie pants statements or starts “trolling” you the solution is real simple: block and mute.
Boom, problem solved.
The gang over at Twitter Inc thinks a student in the UK is a Chinese state actor disinformation bot. Incredible stuff. People underestimate just how often things like this are happening. Big tech is an absolute mess. Billions of dollars, thousands of the “brightest” engineering minds in the world, hundreds of human content moderators, and random students are being suspended for no reason.
Are you a grown adult who can’t handle yourself on the internet? Do you need protection from meanie words online? Well you’re in luck, because Twitter dot com is rolling our yet another “offensive” filter, this time in your DMs.
