    Not all untruths are equal. Sturgeon got pulled up in the debate for saying that 75% of our energy was from renewables. This is not true, itís only 75% of our electricity that comes from renewables. Transport and home heating have miles to go yet. So itís an untruth but itís not hard to imagine that Nicola Sturgeon maybe made a mistake here rather than deliberately mislead.
    When Johnson says heís going to build 40 hospitals itís hard to see that as a bare faced lie when he canít name them or tell us where.

    Yep, the severity and quantity of lies varies dramatically. I'd be interested to know where in the middle the bar lies - as it were - for the acceptability of lies. It seems to me that we aren't objective about this, we excuse the lies that come from the mouths we want to hear and we condone, justify or turn a blind eye to the ones that come from those we support.

    Don't get me wrong - Johnson, Cummings and co are a serious step-up in high grade lying, manipulative chancers.

    Lots of people fell for "the only way to remain in the EU is to vote no to independence"

    Are the SNP using it to their advantage, yes and I'd expect them to, but how anyone could claim it's not a material change is beyond my comprehension

    How do bots on Twitter work when it comes to personal interaction?

    I've been in a conversation with someone for the last hour and it all seems a bit odd. Only registered just before the election campaign, stock profile photo. Has no tweets of his own, every interaction is a reply to a reply if that makes sense and every like is an anti Labour tweet.

    Do bots interact in real time or is it just a troll?

    They can act in real time, not saying it's "Russian" but they have ones that are not exactly bots but are actual people who respond, there is evidence that during the US election they were using historic accounts that they change names etc to suit whatever subject(pro gun, immigration etc) and that they tried to set up demonstrations by people with opposing views to be in the same place at the same time to get maximum carnage and discourse

    I'd take everything I read online these days with a huge pinch of salt

    It's amazing how often this has to be stated to the "once in a generation" camp.
