Somebody made an app that just blocks New York Times reporters on Twitter to "fight against disinformation" 🤣

Feb 8th

It's a simple app with a simple mission.

"Block The New York Times" allows Twitter users to instantly block 800 NYT journalists with just one click. It's completely free and an epic troll.

It's time to block.

Twitter users have begun mass-blocking New York Times-linked accounts to control the flood of corporate disinformation online.

Now, a new app automates the process. For a limited time, block 800 NYT reporters for the low price of $0.

The layout of their website mocks the NYT and has several article abstracts of their own which explain why people would want to block the Times.

The Times in Crisis: 'A Juicy Collection of Great Narratives'

Long marketed as the "paper of record," the New York Times Company now faces an economic and reputational reckoning. Employees are revolting, traffic is plummeting, colleagues are scathing, and readers are blocking.

They go after the paper for doxxing sources, the ridiculous 1619 project and much more.

The service requests access to your Twitter account then automatically blocks 800 NYT reporters. And that's about it.

A brilliant tool in the fight against disinformation!
