2. Who loves what here doesn't matter.

People need to know the truth. We're the party of facts.

5. I really wish that people would learn the difference between "whose" and "who's".

The tweet conveys no useful information.

7. It's a thread, as evidenced by the spool in the tweet.

Youll be glad to know she apologizes for the whos/whose issue further down.

8. I am not on twitter, so I do not know to what "spool" you refer. Most of the time,

Posters actually post the thread, if there is one, or at least a link.

12. I am not on twitter. I do not go to twitter, and I do not see anything resembling a spool.

Nor, at this point, do I care. Several others in this thread also asked for context, so, clearly, .I am not the only one,

17. I noticed the spool is an emoji. Not everyone has the same set of emojis.

I use Android & it sometimes happens to me with Apple user emojis. Sometimes I don't see an emoji, I just see a rectangular box with an X in it.

22. Is there a particular reason you won't go to the website

And demand others explain what is there?

25. I do not go to fb or twitter, and I do not "demand". Common courtesy suggests that

one provide some context or elucidation. Failure to do so is a rather common occurence on DU.

26. No common courtesy doesn't demand a website be copied

If you choose not to access popular websites, its not on anyone else to make sure you are caught up on what is posted there. In fact, Id say common courtesy would dictate just skipping the thread and not complaining about someone denying you access to information you refuse to look at.

10. Something that indicates the post is only a tweet link would be helpful,

much like we have "nt" to indicate the body of the post contains nothing further than the title. So those of us not on/able to access twitter don't bother opening it.

14. Oh, I'm just curious. Some people just don't know that you can read quite a bit of twitter without

having an account. If people are on work computers, I guess I don't see why they'd be on DU, either. But it's a big world!

18. Imagine how deeply one has to be sunk in The Discourse to give a shit about this

Some of y'all need a hobby outside of political discussion. It's hurting your relationship with the world.

... he's no public figure I ever heard of.

24. @DavidMWeissman has been outed as a fraud

The "spool" emoji means it is a Twitter thread.

Weissman's tweets would occasionally come up in my Twitter feed, but I rarely retweeted him. He did have a lot of followers, though.

I am always a little leery of those who converted abruptly. Don't know about this guy.

Although there are plenty of Republicans who despised Trump so much they really did change. Probably because they are truly appalled by how bad the GOP has become. If they are, they will PROVE it.

They want the GOP to change into something resembling normalcy. In the meantime, they will support Dems.

I never thought I would be retweeting someone like Bill Kristol, for example. But he's not just talking the talk, he's walking the walk. He's actually actively involved in the Virginia governor's race.

28. That account should be renamed

News I Never In Any Sane Lifetime Need

Twitter is a dumpster fire. At least Facebook is useful in that my friends and family are there. I'm not sure I've ever seen anything good, informative, or useful come out of Twitter.

Edit: I'll amend this. Nothing politically useful comes out of Twitter. Why people think our national discourse needs High School For Adults is beyond me, but here we are.
