Logo For Twitter’s New ‘Birdwatch’ Program Reminds Some of Orwell’s ‘1984’
On Monday, Twitter announced a new way to annoy its users — a program called “Birdwatch,” where select users can add “notes” to tweets in what it claims is an effort to combat misinformation.
Of course, as Dana Loesch found out, not everyone is allowed to join this online speech-minder program.
Apparently I cannot sign up to contribute to @birdwatch because of an account violation — the violation was @Twitter locking my account for sharing a story I wrote about big tech's reaction to the NYP/Hunter Biden story. pic.twitter.com/hSsVkEkGV1

Here’s a tweet and a video explaining the whole thing:

But it seems that someone found something somewhat disturbing:
Twitter: “can I copy your homework?”
Orwell: “Yea just change it up a little so it’s not obvious you copied”
Twitter: “Ok” pic.twitter.com/QJg8QDjg4y

Reaction was pretty much what you’d expect:

That works for us.
Twitchy, writing about the effort to have users stalk other users, correctly noted: “Twitter, always finding ways to make their users unhappy.”
