Texas gunman fake tweets

Google promoted Texas gunman fake tweets

The search engine displayed a carousel of posts "popular on Twitter" that contained false stories that Kelley was a Muslim and a left-wing extremist.

Google's Danny Sullivan said the tweets were promoted by the site's "ranking algorithm", which would be improved.

"We want to get this right," he said on Twitter.

Google was criticized in October after the Top Stories section of its search results contained fake news about the Las Vegas shooting.
