  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Scientists have developed the ultimate lie detector for social media – a system that can tell whether a tweeter is telling the truth.

The creators of the system called Pheme, named after the Greek mythological figure known for scandalous rumour, say it can judge instantly between truth and fiction in 140 characters or less.

They lie!

From same article....
"Scientists are developing a new computer system which will be able to judge between truth and fiction in 140 characters or less"
"Dr Bontcheva said the final version of the system could be completed within 18 months, but believed that working prototypes may be available sooner."

So it does not exist, as yet.  I call that lying.  (by the media, not the good Dr)
