Here’s the notes for episode #29x of The Meaning of Everything show.

It is commonly assumed that social media creates echo chambers, which play a role in making us more polarized and entrenched in our own viewpoints.

And specifically, our propensity to jump to conclusions. Learn more about how this all plays out in the Twitterverse in today’s episode.
