More effective, to be sure.

Much like the ability to broadcast speech more effectively today through social media than back in 1787. The progressive nature of invention does not change the evil that is in the hearts of men. It just makes it more effective.

You can broadcast hate and vitriol over social media. It does not make it good, just effective and evil.
