    Lightbulb Twitter Adds New Tag to Some Tweets

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- Twitter has announced that they are expanding on their qualifications added to occasional President Trump tweets. In the past week, Twitter has added a block on a tweet of President Trump's that implied positively promoting violence. Another Tweet has a label added below to fact check claims made in the post that were felt to be unjustifiably false. Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, indicated that Twitter's role is to be a communication hub for the world. However, as much as he wanted communication to be as open and free as possible, he didn't want his platform to become the "disinformation platform" for anyone.

    The President has reacted negatively to these acts and signed an executive order in an attempt to reign in the social media giant. This has not deterred Twitter from unveiling a new tag as seen below in President Trump's Tweet posted during the morning of June 1st.



    Jack Dorsey indicated that this latest tag was to help people understand what in the world the President was "actually thinking", or at least as best they could determine. Clicking the link launches an algorithm that reviews the Tweet and chooses selected buzzwords and inputs them into a search engine and "hopefully" provides context.

    "For this instance," noted Twitter's CEO, "it doesn't work as we'd want and we are trying to improve its functionality.

    "But it does provide a mechanism," continued Dorsey, "to help people realize they aren't the only ones that don't understand a word of it."

    Update: Twitter's new AI simply puts together a random string of words, mostly in English.

    Studies show this is more coherent than the actual output of trump.

    I think you have Twitter's AI confused with Trump.
    Trump puts together random strings of words.
    Twitter's AI loosely conforms to some grammatical algorithm.
    It's a forgiveable mistake.
