They have become media darlings in conservative circles and made the debate over critical race theory a national issue. Rufo, who said he was in touch with then-President Donald Trump’s staff before he issued an executive order last September banning critical race theory’s use by federal agencies, promised in a March tweet to make critical race theory “toxic” in the public imagination. “The goal is to have the public read something crazy in the newspaper and immediately think ‘critical race theory,’” he wrote. “There was the ‘war on Christmas,’ and now everybody is teaching critical race theory. The critical race theory debate became a central issue of last week’s school board race, with Maksymowicz facing calls to resign.

Persistent myths like vaccine shedding becoming more extreme on social media. Expert adviceDoctors have been repeating for months that the Covid-19 vaccines are safe for pregnant women, women who are breastfeeding and women who would like to have babies. Accounts populated with hazy art-directed portraits and pastel motivational quotations have been stable homes for Covid-19 vaccine misinformation. The accounts chiefly use Instagram stories, ephemeral content that disappears after 24 hours, to share compilations of what they claim are firsthand accounts of Covid-19 vaccine injuries. "Every day I have somebody messaging me about the vaccine and infertility or periods or fears of getting sick or taking Advil with the vaccine," McBride said.

The ex-president’s blog has drawn a considerably smaller audience than his once-powerful social media accounts, according to engagement data compiled with BuzzSumo, a social media analytics company. The blog posts come in the form of statements that are also sent to supporters via email. A blow to the newest blog’s reach came last week when Twitter booted an account with more than 2,100 followers that primarily shared Trump’s blog posts. Trump’s Twitter ban is permanent, and his temporary YouTube suspension will be lifted when the company decides that the threat of violence is no longer imminent. Research has consistently found no evidence of anti-conservative bias from the most popular social media platforms.

He first put a Bernie Sanders portrait on his desk, two former colleagues said. To me, this story is about something different, a sort of social media power that we helped sharpen at BuzzFeed that can exert an almost irresistible gravitational pull. If you haven’t had the experience of posting something on social media that goes truly viral, you may not understand its profound emotional attraction. But Mr. Gionet ultimately broke loose of those boundaries, seeming to follow the signals he found on social media without any scruple. A few weeks later, he joined the pro-Trump uprising in the Capitol.
