let me demonstrate my point wrt doctoring social media using my twitter

image

here’s my original tweet here

if i right click and click “inspect element” on chrome and find the line that says my actual tweet like so

image

and select that line, right click, and click “edit as html”

image

I can type in whatever i want like this

image

and like that i can make a screenshot that says that i like to eat children and use it to call myself out

image

and thats why you should’t believe screenshots of tweets at face value w/o a link to the original tweet

this is terrifying

this is terrifying because no matter how many notes this post gets, people on tumblr still don’t think about sources
