Twitter Will Help You Be Nice
Twitter is experimenting with a new moderation tool that will warn users before they post replies that contain what the company says is “harmful” language.
When things get heated, you may say things you don't mean. To let you rethink a reply, we’re running a limited experiment on iOS with a prompt that gives you the option to revise your reply before it’s published if it uses language that could be harmful.— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) May 5, 2020

Jimmy Kimmel Screws Up
Jimmy Kimmel edited a video to make it look like Mike Pence carried empty boxes into a nursing home - and it went viral with more than one million views.
it would appear that @vp was joking about carrying empty boxes for a staged publicity stunt. The full video reveals that he was carrying full boxes for a staged publicity stunt. My apologies. I know how dearly this administration values truth. https://t.co/hI9cO4lxcX— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) May 8, 2020
