Only 22 percent of U.S. adults are on Twitter, and 80 percent of the tweets come from 10 percent of users. If you rely on Twitter for political information, you are being informed by ersatz pundits residing within 2.2 percent of the population. https://t.co/E2hh7aNmaj— Arthur Brooks (@arthurbrooks) July 28, 2019
An even smaller segment of the population (something like .001%) decides what political information gets transmitted on cable news and national newspapers. So if you rely on “ersatz pundits” filtered through that cloistered system, you’re even worse off https://t.co/JBekPqsbqd— Michael Tracey (@mtracey) July 29, 2019

Users: We want fewer Nazis.
Twitter: Let’s change the layout!
Users: … to include fewer Nazis?
Twitter: ha ha ha ha ha ha, no.
