On this episode, I spoke with Dave Troy an entrepreneur, speaker, and disinformation researcher based in Baltimore, Maryland.
We covered: disinformation, misinformation, what’s wrong with Twitter and Facebook, the threat of Tok Tok, foreign operations using social media to divide Americans, BLM, Conspiracy Theories, Trump encouraging violence, COVID, what to expect from elections… and some startup stuff.
David was the first to use the Twitter API, and his data visualization work has been featured at the Museum of Modern Art and at TED. He co-curates TEDxMidAtlantic in Washington, D.C. where many of his speakers have been Washington insiders. As his day job, he is CEO at 410 Labs, maker of the e-mail tools Mailstrom and Chuck. Dave’s work on disinformation intersects sociology, network science, and political science.
