“Misinformation exposure scores measure how much the politicians and public organizations you follow tend to lie (based on fact-checking their claims by PolitiFact). These scores go from 0 (none of the fact-checked claims by politicians and public figures you follow are false) to 1 (all of the fact-checked claims by politicians and public organizations you follow are false). Partisanship scores measure how much you tend to follow politicians from the left versus right side of the political spectrum. These scores go from -1 (follow only left-leaning accounts) to 1 (follow only right-leaning accounts).
- You can also use our API to get the scores. Source code for this app is available here.
