⇲ I don’t think media inaccuracy is why some people fervently believe the Israeli government was behind 9/11. Conspiracy theories provide “insider” knowledge and a full network of comfort in situations that don’t make sense.
⇲ Unlike the @SecDialogue piece, the "Alternatives" piece didn't single out a particular author or theory. Instead, it was a call for IR scholars to take 9/11 conspiracy theories seriously.
⇲ WTC 7 has been covered by Popular Mechanics in some depth.
⇲ what a bummer article it reminds me of this one huffpost.com/entry/donte-st…
⇲ New: Dozens of articles and speeches by Jeremy Corbyn promote 9/11 conspiracy theory with… by Iggy Ostanin link.medium.com/q9NDToEHy6
⇲ Even post-9/11 conspiracy theories were sort of fun. Granted some of those were horribly offensive to the families of victims, but most didn't really "matter" in any way.
I feel like it all started to get gross with anti-vax, then changed very dramatically with Pizzag*te.
⇲ Now I’m really starting to believe the 9/11 conspiracy theory that Israel had a hand in it.
⇲ (Ya'll... I think I lost a follower because I called 9/11 conspiracy theories bullshit? Like honest to God it happened right after I posted that which, if so... 🤣 I didn't think that was a controversial topic in 2020 🤷♀️)
⇲ I'm no expert, but this article seems scientifically sound to me: popularmechanics.com/technology/des…
⇲ Oh yeah,full blown 9/11 conspiracy theories. I remember that too. There was also the controversy that flared at the TWQ (link below). Seems journal arms racing with citations/impact factors is leading editors to accept a lot of absurd "shock jock" pieces. tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.108…

⇲ Why is @primevideouk recommending a batshit 9/11 conspiracy theory "movie" to me? pic.twitter.com/uNpdPLs7LZ
⇲ Finally, for all of those who invest their faith in @JudicialWatch & @TomFitton , please remember this organization went to work to DISPROVE 9/11 “conspiracy theories” ...
Can you say “LIMITED HANGOUT?”
⇲ I like Chomsky's reasoning for the 9/11 conspiracy theories, that totally apply today. He said something like:
the people in power pushed the conspiracy theories to distract the opposition so they didn't focus on invading Iraq and repealing environmental reforms
⇲ which 9/11 conspiracy theory do you find most convincing?
⇲ I mean US has 9/11 conspiracy theories etc.

⇲ Perry Whitlock brought a pipe wrench to a gun rally & harassed a Black family because they asked him not to get near their baby. He previously ran for office on a platform he didn't publicize, but probably had something to do with beaver attacks &debunked 9/11 conspiracy theories twitter.com/m1523751/statu… pic.twitter.com/sh2DB0LTyZ
