And while we’re discussing social-media ‘bias’, let’s not forget Ted Cruz whining that Twitter highlighted all the rude snark about his totally 100% sincere SPACE PIRATES!!! speech this week (while somehow erasing the hundreds of YAY TED! responses he was expecting).
I’m betting this will be another one of those MAGAt-rally-pleasing Trump “announcements” to which his loyal minions respond by yelling “Jawohl, Hair Fuhrer!” and doing… absolutely fekking nothing.
UPDATED: In unprecedented move, Trump WH asks people to share stories of political bias targeting them on FB, Google, Twitter, seeking names, account links and more. Free speech advocates are alarmed, and open gov experts question use of taxpayer resources https://t.co/SCNfFcqgSD

FWIW, a WH spokesman said the collected data would "100 percent not" be shared with the president's re-election campaign https://t.co/5JCJJpDyxq

It rules in profound ways that Republicans are going to have to whine about inane Twitter shit just as much as Trump does to show that they're loyal to him. If this all goes right, half the Senate will be sending pissy .@ messages to Bette Midler by early 2020.

Fox viewers are about 2.3 million people.
“Half of America?”
This country has a population of 327 million. Fox viewers are a rounding error. A racist, sexist, brain dead rounding error. https://t.co/otBIAbur8l
