Show Trump and his followers when he’s tweeting lies

The Washington Post has a new Chrome Extension for fact-checking Trump’s tweets.

Here’s a thought for how to use it to even greater value in exposing his lies.

Screen snip the WaPo fact-checked tweet to “putin” a direct Reply to his false tweet. Include the link above so others know about the Chrome Extension, too.

Twitter tip:
Make a period the first character in the tweet in front of his name in the Reply (or in tweets that start with his name) so more people see it.

Here are a couple of examples….

.@realDonaldTrump, you’re no longer going to get away with tweeting lies. How about holding a press conf instead? https://www.washingtonpost.com/…/now-you-can-fact-check-tr…/

…..or something like…..

.@realDonaldTrump, your days of lying on Twitter are over. Hold a press conf. That’s what real leaders do. https://www.washingtonpost.com/…/now-you-can-fact-check-tr…/

No matter what you think of him as a person or as the president-elect, he shouldn’t get to lie unchallenged.
