TLDR: we will never know for sure what is real, in a scalable way. There is not enough fact-fact-checkers and those who fact-check them. But what we can do is describe the level of uncertainty and present factually correct numbers.
(pending regulatory approvals etc)
I don’t think anyone at Twitter will automagically stumble upon Kleros. Everyone talks about Twitter and Elon Musk, that particular tweet didn’t get thousands of retweets. Even if someone did read it - Kleros is pretty geeky, pretty technical, pretty complicated to explain in a single Tweet.
Not just fake news but also massively controversial statements taken of out context - factually correct but misleading.
Here is some example with numbers:
Group A: 75% of people said A is true
Group B: 25% of people said B is true
91% people in group A said B is false.
87% people in groub B said A is false.
100% people across the site agree this is a subject of ongoing controversy - that is factually correct.
Even with the most controversial statement, it is possible to remain factually correct.
Displaying all the data in the UI - busy, messy, cognitive overload.
I think it is possible to have just a single bar and “show more” to indicate the distribution of the votes:
To know if the statement is controversial or not - a useful piece of information
If Twitter algo becomes open-source, there will be multiple clients, Kleros client being the best. I could use my personal settings - anything with “heat >60%” just don’t show.
Kleros building a proof of concept of content moderation with TOKENOMICS that incentivize use:
- daily airdrop of tokens
- most of them expire
- some of them can be staked / delegated
- some reactions and supporting contributors
Scalable tokenomics that prevents fraud - that would be PRETTY WOW.
This book sparked the entire community: https://www.radicalxchange.org/ (Vitalik is on the board)
Quadratic funding on Gitcoin is one of the examples.
In the instance of Twitter - I have 10 points that expire daily and when I use 10 at the same time it counts differently than 10 individual people… (here Proof of Humanity can help)
Loads of ideas how to improve Twitter.
Kleros providing fact-checking / moderation / controversy (heat level) services?
