We are in a crisis of knowledge - and it couldn’t have happened at a worse time | The Globe and Mail
October 20, 2023 | This opinion piece by Taylor Owen talks about the reasoning behind why he decided to take a break from X, formerly Twitter, a platform he has been using as a gateway to information for over a decade.
He said "the platform is now broken. Where it once filtered valuable information about the world in a timely manner, it is now calibrated to anger and extremes under the ownership of a spiteful billionaire clearly caught in an ideological rabbit hole."
He then talks about how AI influenced the news we receive on social media, especially X and how this leads to a challenge in identifying fake news from the reality.
