The WaPo tells us, essentially, that moms are right about bullies — you gotta punch them on the snout, like a common Trump:
Online misinformation about election fraud plunged 73 percent after several social media sites suspended President Trump and key allies last week, research firm Zignal Labs has found, underscoring the power of tech companies to limit the falsehoods poisoning public debate when they act aggressively.
The new research by the San Francisco-based analytics firm reported that conversations about election fraud dropped from 2.5 million mentions to 688,000 mentions across several social media sites in the week after Trump was banned from Twitter.
How about that: you get the liar off the platform and the lies stop being distributed (as much). Side benefit: Twitter feels less like a firehose of misery these days. It’s strange how that happens.
