How We Choose

We’ve selected for you the most engaging news (tweets) from Australian news agencies.

How did we understand them being the most engaging? That’s simple. Those that have comments with logical fallacies of a particular kind. For example, if a comment contains Ad Hominem, we consider this tweet a bit triggering, or if it contains False Dilemma, then it’s probably a Food for Thought. You see the idea. So we prepared a couple of pieces of news for each group: “Triggering”, “Food for Thoughts” and “Team, Status Quo, and Better Life”.

If you want to receive those right as soon as they are ready, please follow us on twitter: @makesensenews1. For more details on online fallacy detector, please see Automatic Logical Fallacy Detection.
