Art of Quotation

“Since in the age of the internet we are all publishers, each of us bears some private responsibility for the public’s sense of truth.

If we are serious about seeking the facts, we can make a small revolution in the way the internet works… If you choose to follow reporters whom you have reason to trust, you can also transmit what they have learned to others.  If you retweet only the work of humans who have followed journalistic protocols, you are less likely to debase your brain interacting with bots and trolls.”

— Timothy Snyder, from On Tyranny — Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century (Lesson 11 – Investigate), writer, professor, historian
