Thus while ideological siloeing, censorship, harassment, disinformation, and geopolitical sabotage remain among the top complaints against the platform, regardless of corporate changes, Twitter’s moral hazard and transformative potential lie outside, and prior to, these issues of content management and formal control. Twitter, or anything that borrows its principle of design, clarifies the consequences of modern society’s technological outsourcing of moral interpretation, and brings to a head the digital management of the public sphere and the greater republic of letters. As an object of study it belongs to the field of literary theory because literary theory pays the closest attention to the dynamic between recorded human communication and social design, looks most carefully at the beginnings of engineering, wherever it may occur, that wants to determine the purpose of natural human language, and the point of understanding it.

You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).
Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.
You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).
