New Twitter App Allows Users to Block Misleading New York Times Journalists

Even if you don’t follow them, you see them. At least a few times a week, the average Twitter user has the misfortune of coming across a New York Times journalist calling a harmless story racist, dangerous, or a threat to America.

Luckily, a new app is here to help. The newly-created Block the New York Times app allows users to sign up and block 800 of the worst New York Times writers. And unlike Twitter’s future plans, it’s free to do so.

The best part is the clever homepage that mirrors the “paper of record” but with hoax stories and parodies.

The crossed-out “Facts” is a pretty good touch, you must admit.

It’s important to remember, journalists are the most thin-skinned, paranoid people in America (aside from NBA players, of course.) Whenever a journalist clicks on an account that has him blocked, he then quickly logs into his burner account to check if the blocked account is tweeting about him.

In other words, sign up for this app now and spread the word.

Which New York Times journalists are you blocking first? Don’t forget, there is a limit.
