The Twitter user tsharp did us a favor recently by presenting the facts about vaccines in a totally modern way. He started a thread that perfectly illustrated the fallacies of the main anti-vaxxer arguments (mercury, autism, etc.) using caricatures and GIF to keep the distracted reader involved.
While the thread was very well received by people who praised its accuracy, an easy work to read and quoted correctly, of course there are those people who will never be displaced from their almost unbreakable beliefs, and instead will find ways to twist the facts so that they adapt to your agenda.
