    •  Absolutely. It's worse than (0+ / 0-)

      cable news feeding us the right wing pablum.  Twitter, I think, is really doomed because of exactly what you did.  You can say anything and there is no censor.  At least on reputable blogs, you get some truth measurement.  This doesn't exist on what I see on Twitter.  It will die because of that.  There will be a "major" controversy about some incredible untruth accepted by a person we have all heard of and then Twitter dies.

        At least, not as a whole. Twitter-as-a-news-source was a stupid idea to begin with.

        The twitter-to-talk-to-your-friends side of things isn't.

        And frankly, I don't think you could pull this off to any group other than the types of diehard conservatives who will believe anything as long as it makes the Democrats look bad.

        A fake Twitter account was created in Keith Olberman's name last week . He said he isn't  on Twitter. Apparently  you can't even be sure of who is posting the tweets, much less rely on the truth of what is said.
