THREAD: In summer 2016, George Nader (representing Saudi Arabia & UAE) and an Israeli specialist in "social media manipulation" offered to help **THROW THE ELECTION** in a meeting w/Trump Jr arranged by Erik Prince‼️ 1/

nytimes.com/2018/05/19/us/…
At the Aug'16 #treason meet, Nader told Jr the crown princes of #SaudiArabia & #UAE were "eager to help his father win." The Israeli social media expert's (Joel Zamel) firm had already drawn up a multimillion $ proposal for a social media manipulation effort to help Trump.🤨 2/
Zamel's social media company #Wikistrat, which employed several Israeli former intelligence officers, specialized in "collecting information & shaping opinion through social media."🤨

Gee, that sounds familiar‼️🤬 3/

Good morning! Day 1 of my trudging through the Russian ad dump is below.

Day 2 coming soon. But first, some observations of what I've read so far:
1. As we knew, the content sought to divide Americans on religious, racial, sexual & other social lines
2. A lot of the ads are positive and *not* divisive, seeking to build community before increasingly large asks (sharing, commenting, showing up to protests IRL)
3. In terms of "sophistication," the IRA was often very clumsy with their English & with targeting. Could they have been more effective? Undoubtedly. Did their efforts nonetheless have an impact? Absolutely. Their posts - many with a significant organic reach - reached millions.

So this is interesting & let me tell you why.

@savethe8thinfo is apparently run (in part) out of Hungary.

Do you know who else is based in Hungary & heavily involved in the Anti Choice movement in both countries?

Jim Dowson. The money man behind Britain First.

Thread.
Some background on Dowson 1st. He was kicked out of the Orange Order in the 90s for being too extreme and was both heavily involved in both the BNP, and the loyalist flag riots in Belfast in 2010/11. He has several criminal convictions,
Aside from the aforementioned protest at the Mary Stopes Clinic in Belfast, were he was working with Youth Defence (who are behind the savethe8thinfo facebook page, Dowson has ties to Belfast Anti Choice activist Bernadette Smyth running the Scottish Chapter of "Precious Life"

Goodbye to the rest of my day. Here are all of the Russian ads.
democrats-intelligence.house.gov/facebook-ads/s…
One of the first more successful/costly ads, from 2015. Posts promising "updates" (including one about the Charleston shooting) seem to perform better so far. Also notice targeting- Baltimore, Ferguson, and surrounding.
Nothing like some good old patriotism to generate some clicks 🇺🇸

Just like with RT's cat and tsunami videos, this page was looking to draw people in before delivering more divisive content...

I was just asked 'What is #GameB?'

This is a great question that I don't think there exists a great answer for. @BretWeinstein and @EricRWeinstein coined the term and it stuck (I think more than they intended)

I first heard the term #GameB in @joerogan's Joe Rogan Experience
Here's a link to the episode's unofficial notes: jrefan.com/the-joe-rogan-…

Here's roughly where @BretWeinstein begins talking about what gets him to #GameB:
In my best efforts, I would describe #GameB as the following set of statements:

The current game we play as humans is #GameA.

GameA has certain 'rules' set in place. It's hard to describe them all, but a good summary could be 'Our current set of laws and social norms.'

Incoming: Friday afternoon #Facebook / #GDPR tweetstorm, because this week has been pretty deflating for us #privacy wonks.

If you're European, you probably got an email from FB this week, with this subject line:

/1
"X, please accept our updated Terms by May 25 to continue using Facebook."

Now, let's talk about how non-compliant that subject line is. It suggest that failing to accept the new terms will result in account suspension. That's a problem.
#GDPR requires consent to be "freely given" and says that services can't be withheld just because the consumer doesn't consent to ALL THE TRACKING.

The last line of the email is "Please go to Facebook to review and accept the Terms" which reinforces the subject line threat.

From 22,300 miles in space, where seven Advanced Orion crafts now orbit; to a 1-million-square-foot building in the Utah desert that stores data intercepted from personal phones, emails, and social media accounts; to taps along the millions of miles of undersea cables...
that encircle the Earth like yarn, U.S. surveillance has expanded exponentially since Obama’s inauguration on Jan. 20, 2009.

To those who believe we should roll over and "accept" the ref/vote... Do you know how democracy works? #ABTV #FBPE #BrexitIsPersonal
It's a PROCESS. Not an end product. You don't do it just the once. Remainers/leavers who insist we should respect the vote are either not aware of the threat democracy is currently under or they don't understand the concept of democracy.
"You don't get to keep voting until you get what you want". Well actually that IS kinda the point. You want your vote to count. And you want your values and policies to be realised.

1. What is #Netflix up to?
Is Netflix following the same model as #Facebook and #Google?
Who is running #Netflix?

cc: @_VachelLindsay_ @TheLastRefuge2
2. Why did #Netflix place #SusanRice on their Board of Directors?

She has no background in entertainment or movie production.
But Susan Rice is experienced in certain online activities - like unmasking secure information.

So why was she added to the Netflix Board of Directors?
3. Why is #Obama currently in negotiations with Netflix to produce a series of "inspirational" videos?
#Obama has a public DISapproval rating of over 50%.
Like Susan Rice, Obama has no background in entertainment or movie production.

Here's the #Facebook "scandal" in a nutshell:
(1/10) In 2004 Mark #Zuckerberg creates essentially the biggest single advertising platform of all time.
(2/10) Facebook's genius is that instead of advertising that's coupled with original content (TV, radio, print, other websites) the "original content" of FB is the audience itself, as they "connect" with each other.
(3/10) Like any & every business, ever, at some point FB needs to find a way to get people to voluntarily give them lots of money. Who though? Well, companies/entities that want to influence groups of people to do things (duh).

Wonder how #Zuckerberg is gonna explain these two non-profit organizations?

As of 2016 - the combined total balance was over $750,000,000

👉🏻👌🏽Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Inc

👉🏻👌🏽Chan Zuckerberg Foundation

🙋🏻‍♀️Why did FB want our Medical Data again?

#Facebook
These totals put the CLINTON FOUNDATION to shame ...

Heard of hiding money, but DAMN!
🙋🏻‍♀️Remember when #Zuckerberg announced in December 2015 that he would be donating $ to charity?

🙋🏻‍♀️ Did he mean his own?

#Zuckerberg made 2 key algorithm changes that benefitted specific media outlets and harmed their competitors.

#Conservative publishers have been hit the hardest by the algorithm changes.

#Facebook refuses to identify which outlets it’s boosting and which ones it’s suppressing.
Conservative and right-wing publishers “were hit the hardest” by the algorithm change, “while the engagement numbers of most predominantly liberal publishers remained unaffected.”

#Facebook said it surveyed users to help determine which media sources are trusted.

The poll was just two questions: Whether users had heard of a website (yes or no) and how much they trusted each website.
