The juxtaposition of GIF compression to twitter concision is amusing but insufficient to discredit either. Brevity is generally recognized as a more reliable route to insight than circumlocution. As for the excerpt you posted, I have to assume you found it insightful. Rest assured it is not. “The threat of video manipulation can lead to a blurring of reality” is as old as dirt. Ansel Adams presaged it. We are far past it now. It was trite a decade ago. Well past banal now.
