This is so beautiful. “Journalist” Aaron Rupar is the master of taking videos out of context and posting them to Twitter, so it’s a great day when the citizens of Birdwatch think that one of his tweets could benefit from added context. We already reported today on how much he was ridiculed for claiming to be the victim of “stolen valor” because someone posted one of his videos.
RT mine? i actually watched the speech, you lazily saw my video go viral and decided to rip it off for stolen valor. you do this all the time and people notice. give people credit for their work when it is due

“While potentially in poor taste, reposting news clips from a third party is qualitatively different.”

I can’t believe Elon Musk isn’t rebranding Birdwatch membership as “NUCLEAR QUOTE TWEET” and charging $1k/month for it. https://t.co/NzM8bt70bv
