One of the many consequences of the conflict in Europe is that the Russian government has blocked access to Twitter for its citizens. One can guess this is to prevent their citizens from finding out the true nature of the invasion. As a result though, this means that the plethora of Russian Twitter bots and trolls can no longer run their disinformation campaigns.

Many people on Twitter have remarked that disinformation rhetoric is down sharply. I can just imagine right-wing and conservative folks across North America are now lost, sitting quietly, wondering what and who they should be mad at next.

In general, I think Twitter is terrible and the company itself has been a stain on society. This just goes to show that if Twitter should have banned these bots and trolls a long time ago.
