As if the idea of the Biden Admin's ministry of truth wasn't scary and Orwellian enough, wait until you hear what the lady who heads up the "disinformation governance board" thinks Twitter should do to moderate speech.
Here's Nina Jankowicz, Minister of Truth, describing how she'd change Twitter.
Verified people can, essentially, start to edit Twitter the same sort of way that Wikipedia is. So they can add context to certain tweets.
So, if you say something out of line with what the government thinks you should believe, the idea is that "verified" people that big brother, or big sister, trusts will be able to CHANGE YOUR WORDS to fit their narrative.
Like, in Wikipedia, people can freely edit a page. And that's the Wikipedia model and it works for an encyclopedia.
But Twitter is individual people's speech.
They want to read what you say and then change it if you say something like "ivermectin is safe and saves lives" the government and their minions could change YOUR very words.
But, who knows, it might turn out okay if it's verified users we can trust.
Unfortunately, it's not EVERY verified user in Jankowicz's plan. Just the ones she and the government trust.
