Cameron Winklevoss Claims Fact-Checking Is Censorship And Gets Fact-Checked

One Twitter user told one half of the Winklevii that "'Fact checking = censorship' definitely sounds like some 2020 bulls**t."

When it comes to fact-checking, some people just can’t handle the truth.

First, President Donald Trump got into a tizzy after Twitter dared to apply fact checks to his tweets claiming mail-in voting is a fraud.

Now, one of the Winklevoss twins ― who are best known for suing Mark Zuckerberg over the idea for Facebook ― is falsely claiming that the whole fact-checking process is actually censorship.

Cameron Winklevoss made the very Orwellian comment via Twitter on Thursday and managed to work up a quite large ratio in the process.

Many Twitter users immediately fact-checked Winklevoss’ false definition of fact-checking.

Even Dictionary.com couldn’t deal with Winklevoss’ nonsense.

Some people took Winklevoss’ statement to its extreme.

And one person offered some sage advice for Winklevoss.
