“Defeat Crooked Hillary” was name of campaign run by MAN1 PAC, Cambridge Analytica client, that handled the “deterrent” voter demobilization work and awarded prestigious Olgivy award from ad industry (later rescinded)
Brittany Kaiser’s book #Targeted details the MAN1 Cambridge Analytica work and its use of psychographic targeting which resulted in a 20% engagement boost for neurotic outliers. (p199)
Here’s a slide included in Kaiser’s book that shows Cambridge Analytica demobilization strategy

Zuck can’t admit that his employees are challenging the business model to its core, even going as far as mentioning Custom Audiences.
Here’s the section on Custom Audiences. Only marketers and industry observers realize this is even possible. Also impossible to opt-out of being targeted with Custom Audiences. “Hiding” these ads deep in the settings is the ultimate dark pattern, a futile effort, by design.
Brittany Kaiser describes in her book #Targeted how Facebook employees embedded with the Trump campaign helped maximize use of the Custom Audiences feature to microtarget (and conceal malicious messaging).

Little Nitpick on the Cambridge Analytica Whistleblower Memoirs: Both Wylie and Kaiser make the same mistake and use “testify” in their books when they describe their appearances to parliaments. But you “give evidence” because you’re not actually under oath. #Targeted #Mindf_ck
Parliaments just assumed witnesses would never dare. That is until Alexander Nix came along and misled Parliament, the ICO… I’d assume US authorities also…although that’s not public unlike UK enquiry. Congressional testimony involves an oath but not all hearings are under oath.
Wylie testified before Congress. Kaiser was subpoenaed by Mueller and like Wylie, Kaiser cooperated with numerous investigations. They describe this cooperation with various investigations in their books. Wylie delivered binders to Congress. Kaiser delivered hard drive to FBI.

You gotta read this @hugorifkind profile of Brittany Kaiser in the lead-up to her book release. The way she disguises Chase Ergen with a fake name is so weird. Includes a book excerpt from #Targeted. #TheGreatHack thetimes.co.uk/article/britta…

#ShadowBanning Hi friend and #Patriot. It looks like you were #Shadowbanned...as was I...in many of your posts. I am very familiar with the censoring techniques utilized by #Twitter. I think the technique they used is what I call #EchoBanning or #BubbleBanning. Explanation...
2. What I have figured that they do, is that #Twitter targets for #Censorship with these methods.
- User account. Account pushing too much of the inconvenient #TRUTH are put on their list. This essentially targets #Conservatives or even #LEFTISTS who espouse #FakeNews positions.
3. Literally exposing #Censorship itself is banned. Other taboo topics include real exposure of #Corruption that they have identified to specifically block, such as #PizzaGate or #PedoGate. This is why #LIBS will sometimes be blocked as well (blocked ideas).
