Who’s Having the Worst Day on Twitter

Brown University professor Emily Oster, journalist Aaron Rupar and Twitter executive Yoel Roth are all having bad days on Twitter.

  • But who’s having the worst day?

HAVING A BAD ONE

OSTER: In an essay for The Atlantic, the economics professor and author urged those who were proven correct about the way to approach the COVID-19 pandemic not to lord it over the people who got it wrong. But a wave of critics, citing the various harms caused by school lockdowns and other measures, weren’t ready to let bygones be bygones.

RUPAR: After critics expressed skepticism toward the former Vox journalist’s explanation of why he was losing followers, Rupar pivoted to blaming Elon Musk, Twitter’s new owner.

ROTH: Commenters resurfaced highly partisan tweets from Twitter’s head of safety and integrity. Roth was already in the spotlight thanks to his new boss leaking some of his private messages as evidence that Twitter had used “fraudulent metrics” to report results.
