In the Wake of the Texas Rampage, Social Media Can Reform Itself

From a New York Times opinion piece by Kara Swisher headlined “In the Texas Rampage’s Wake, Social Media Can Reform Itself”:

It’s almost impossible to comprehend what to do in the wake of mass shootings like the one that killed 19 schoolchildren and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas, this week. While there are lots of words — you can listen to my discussion on “Sway” with Nicholas Kristof and Frank Smyth on where we go next on gun control — it can leave an empty feeling, as the sense of hopelessness overwhelms our ability to understand how we got here. The problem is exacerbated by the perpetrators’ use of online tools, which some have used to float phony conspiracy theories.
