Something’s going on with Twitter. It looks like they’ve been gamed. There’s no event showing up on my mobile app and instead the POS right-wing crap outlet Newsmax is at the top of Trends.
I have it on my desktop but not my on mobile device which is why I could grab the link.
Anybody else have this same experience? Let me know in comments, thanks.
