Censor might be too strong a word. Let’s instead say that they want a “truth meter” on Twitter content, and they’ll decide what is truthful:
The federal government is spending nearly $1 million to create an online database that will track â€śmisinformationâ€ť and hate speech on Twitter.
The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor â€śsuspicious memesâ€ť and what it considers â€śfalse and misleading ideas,â€ť with a major focus on political activity online.
The â€śTruthyâ€ť database, created by researchers at Indiana University, is designed to â€śdetect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution.â€ť
How much you want to bet that anything considered Tea Party-ish, or that questions “global warming” will fall into one of those categories?
These “researchers” would then call-out (on a web portal) those whose opinions or facts they don’t agree with.
