Trump Twitter thumb has a final ask from America: Virality (Commentary)
New York, Oct 22 (IANS) US president Donald Trump has one final ask from America. Imagine that America's catastrophic coronavirus response isn't real, imagine that masks don't work and let's all see how that balloon flies on the world's digital persuasion machines. "Its just a retweet", in the language of Trump, is built around the idea of population scale behaviour change at low cost. People can figure on the go where they stand on conspiracy theories just because something has been flung out there. That free speech excuse has long been central to the Trumpian re-election run. If we go beyond the rudimentary fact checks and try connecting the dots between America's virus caseload, Trump's claims and the tightening poll numbers, the rough edges of a shape begin to form. It suggests that Trump's final ask from Americans is a request for virality on Big Tech platforms, nothing less.
