There are lots of things you can't do on Twitter. You can't threaten violence, post pornography or wear a swastika in your profile pic. But you can lie. Twitter made clear on Thursday that while it is happy to serve as a platform for fact-checkers, it does not want to get into the business of making its own judgments about what is true or false.
"Twitter Executive on Fake News: ‘We Are Not the Arbiters of Truth’" is from the February 08, 2018 Business section of The Washington Post. It was written by Callum Borchers and narrated by Jenny Hoops.
