How To Slow Down Misinformation On Social Media


Without a change in this design, nothing else can change. Moderation is impractical when you have 3 billion users speaking hundreds of languages in dozens of political cultures. AI is hopeless at nuance.

It makes for good PR, but the effects are so small as to be inconsequential. – The Guardian
