fake news?

A tweet that had went viral in Japan in 2015 talking about daisies that were assumed mutated by the radiation coming from the Fukushima nuclear power plant.

There had been rumors going around back in 2015 that this tweet was not reliable and that people were not sure if these daisies were really mutated by the nuclear power plant.  It’s simply just fake news that gets viral on Twitter I believe.  Nowadays, there are more fake news than there had been back in the 1920s with Yellow Journalism.  Especially during the election, there were fake news all over the place by people who were on each side of the election.  Teens and kids don’t know what to believe or what’s real anymore because anything can be said nowadays by social media and they would believe it.  More and more people are making money off these fake ads and news that they put on social media and I think it’s just silly.  Even in this advanced, civilized, and bright generation, we just can’t seem to grasp on what’s morally and factually true or not in this society.
