If you need a laugh, Wikipedia identifies #Abbas as the president of the

More upside - down world.
There has never been and there is not now a

He was previously admonished by the judge for failure to make a good faith effort to resolve the issue. So it still has to make its way through the courts. Neither side had won

By comparing Twitter to Wikipedia or Reddit, you’re missing the infrastructure element here too. Reddit is a forum and Wikipedia is essentially a network of trolling. Neither platform has had to deal with the issue of viral misinformation as much as Twitter.
