Fakenews Making Idiots of Themselves

Now they’ve got it into their heads that “location services” from Twitter, which can be customized by the end user, are sound enough to constitute proof. Proof, that you’re in the pay of Vladimir Putin, no less. As is happening to users who jokingly pretend to be in Russia, then find their account suspended for it.

Proof enough to get parody accounts banned from Twitter – on this sort of evidence:

Anybody can set their location to anything they want. (So long as it’s a real place. We wanted to put “the fucking Moon” as our location and tweet “Look where we’re tweeting from!”. But that level of customization isn’t supported. Pretending to be anywhere on Earth is supported, as you’ve seen in our “impossible” travel tweet above).

That’s #fakenews. Ignorance playing upon ignorance. They don’t even bother to read the user manual, let alone click to see what that little location button on their tweet does.

Charlatans and liars – who hate parodies sending them up enough to have them banned.

Such as the account formerly known as “Boston Antifa” who similarly customized their own location (a more likely scenario than “accidently switched it on then accidently typed in their password to confirm they wanted it on”).

With Russiagate collapsing around their ears Hillarists have taken to bullying those who parody them.

Boston Antifa are welcome to guest post on the skankworks.net. We think they did a splendid job sending up the political zeitgeist in Trump’s America.

Update

The profile page supports free-form locations so we did, briefly, get to tweet from the fucking Moon after all.

Space Antifa, eat your heart out.
