Usually when someone asks for their own tweet to be prevented from being reshared it’s a sign of Streisand Effect.
The Streisand effect is a phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide, remove, or censor a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the Internet.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streisand_effect
I think Twitter has enabled a new phenomenon where an old tweet, retweeted after a period of time where the larger context and headspace is no longer the same, it takes away the original meaning of the tweet. This is the same as when we sometimes see people share links from 5 yrs ago and the headline somehow seems relevant to what’s happening now but it ends effectively being disinformation.
Let’s name this phenomenon: Disinformation via Anachronistic Juxtaposition
