Fox News host Jeanine Pirro is furious with “big tech” companies because she thinks they’re censoring the text messages she receives from friends, but her complaint wound up making her look like a complete fool when Twitter users explained the basics of modern technology to her.
Taking to Twitter over the weekend, Pirro claimed that she had gotten text messages from friends that had been “modified,” and that made her angry and deeply suspicious:

There’s a simple reason for the notification on those texts, as Mediaite explains:
“Pirro did not specify which company — Apple or a cellular provider? — carried out the alleged censorship. There is a simpler explanation for what happened to Pirro than the vast conspiracy she is alleging. It is likely that the messages she received exceeded 160 characters, or perhaps included a large image that required a lot of data to be downloaded — both instances are said to produce the fairly benign message.”
To quote Homer Simpson, “D’oh!”
Social media humiliation quickly followed for Ms. Pirro. Take a look:
OUR GREAT DEEP STATE HAS NOW TAKEN CONTROL OF DRUNKY JEANIE’S TECH DEVICES!

Stop lying. They asked if you wanted any boxed wine while they were at the store. The second “friend” messaged you just to say that they couldn’t buy all of the boxes of wine you wanted.

This reminds me of when my mom’s aunt used to complain that “the commies” were stealing her mail.
In reality, her mail was forwarded to a PO Box because she had severe dementia & my mom was her POA/caretaker.

Me Thinks this is a case of old lady doesn’t understand technology after a few bottles of wine, and not ‘Big Tech is out to get me and my friends’.
Dry out Jeanine, you’re embarrassing yourself.

That means it was modified from wherever they copied and pasted the message. Not modified in the actual text.
Trying to get an uproar just because you are tech illiterate is just wrong.
Reading through the comments others seem to agree sorry, but not sorry.
