"What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?" (Matthew 16,26)

This is a sermon on loving your enemies. However, you don’t have to be of this or that or any faith to follow the train of thought. 1/16
I do, however, begin in a religious text: Milton’s “Paradise Lost”. In particular¨, the opening of book IV. Satan is returning to paradise to tempt Adam and Eve, but he realizes that even in paradise he cannot escape hell, because “Which way I flie is Hell; my self am Hell”. 2/16
I repeat the point: he cannot escape hell because even in paradise he brings hell with him. 3/16

You Tube today removed a video clip of Rand Paul on the Senate floor~asking what Roberts blocked him from asking during the trial & it includes the name of a man many on the right believe to be the WB. Paul is screaming about being censured. #ThursdayThoughts Here's his statement
2-“It is a chilling and disturbing day in America when giant web companies such as YouTube decide to censure speech. Now, even protected speech, such as that of a senator on the Senate floor, can be blocked from getting to the American people.
3-"This is dangerous and politically biased. Nowhere in my speech did I accuse anyone of being a whistleblower, nor do I know the whistleblower’s identity."
I say, thank GOD at least someone had the decency to take the video down.
Rand Paul is a public menace.

Oh look, more pornbots. This network hypothetically tweets via Mobile Web (M2) (an older version of the Twitter website for mobile phones) and uses link redirection service rebrand(dot)ly to shorten/disguise its links. #SundaySpam

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@ZellaQuixote We found a total of 91 accounts tweeting shortened porn links via Mobile Web (M2). The entire group activated shortly after midnight PST on 2/9, and all were created in the 2 hours immediately prior. The botnet has generated an average of 69 tweets per minute since coming online.
@ZellaQuixote So far, every single tweet posted by these 91 accounts contains a rebrand(dot)ly short link that redirects to the actual porn site being peddled, zavmosse(dot)pw. As always, be wary of clicking links from dodgy botnets.

We’re often asked how can you grow your following and engagement on Twitter if you're a CMO or CEO?

This 10-step #TwitterForLeaders thread 🧵 shows how this can be done.
1. Humanise your brand

Sharing personality on Twitter doesn’t have to mean sharing your personal life.

As well as sharing news about your role / company, Tweet about the things you are passionate about (sport, culture). This demonstrates openness without crossing boundaries.
2. Amplify announcements

Twitter is about what’s happening. It is the place to share news about your brand or business. When there is good news to share, go to town. Explain it with a great picture or a short series of Tweets.

Additionally, share...

On January 13th, 2020, shortly before midnight Pacific time, our good friend @DrunkAlexJones debuted the hashtag #FishingForRobots in order to, well, fish for robots. #ThursdayThoughts #ManyFishBite

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@DrunkAlexJones @ZellaQuixote We used three different tools (Hypefury, Crowdfire, and TweetDeck) to schedule @DrunkAlexJones #FishingForRobots tweetstorms at roughly midnight PST on seven recent occasions. 91 additional accounts picked up the hashtag, 76 of which are at least mostly automated.
@DrunkAlexJones @ZellaQuixote We designed #FishingForRobots tweets to attract bots, and evolved them several times over the course of the experiment. The first set of tweets (sent via Hypefury) contained hashtags we knew from previous experience would likely result in bots retweeting or cloning the tweets.

The holiday season may have drawn to a close, but these trend-hijacking pornbots seem to have missed the memo. #ReleaseTheMemo #ThursdayThoughts

cc: @ZellaQuixote
@ZellaQuixote By searching for the repeated phrases used by the pornbots, we found 19 accounts. All supposedly tweet via the "Twitter Web Client" (the old version of the Twitter website), but due to repetition of content and frequently inhuman sleep schedules, we believe them to be automated.
@ZellaQuixote Here are the 40 trends that this botnet most frequently grafts onto its tweets. Holidays, sports, and recent political/news topics make up the bulk of the list. All appear to be U.S. trends (or have at least trended recently in the U.S.). These bots drop the "#" from hashtags.

BREAKING: Iran has launched “tens” of surface-to-surface missiles at Iraq Ain Assad air base housing U.S. troops in retaliation for Trump's assassination of Suleimani. No reports yet of casualties or damage estimates.
It has begun.. #ThursdayThoughts…
2-"State TV described it early Wednesday as Tehran’s revenge operation over the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qasem Soleimani. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard then warned the U.S. and its regional allies against retaliating over the missile attack in Iraq.
3-"The Guard issued the warning via a statement carried by Iran’s state-run IRNA news agency. “We are warning all American allies, who gave their bases to its terrorist army, that any territory that is the starting point of aggressive acts against Iran will be targeted,”

Sen Chris Murphy just said that unless this attack that killed General Soleimani was done to prevent an imminent threat to the United States, Trump cannot legally have ordered it without Congressional Consent. We could end up at War with Iran, kids. This is BAD. #ThursdayThoughts
The DOD statement says that Soleimani was actively planning attacks on US Diplomats and service members. "Soleimani was “actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region. General Soleimani and his Quds Force were
2-responsible for the deaths of hundreds of American and coalition service members and the wounding of thousands more.”
Lots of resonant speculation that Iran sees this as an act of War. #ThursdayThoughts…

Attorneys for Little Roger Stone asked the court today to delay his sentencing (Feb 6) for 'at least one month'. Taking a page out of Flynn's book, Stone's claiming he needs to more to get p/w for his sentencing advisory together. #ThursdayThoughts…

Pelosi discussed holding back the Articles in this morning's Dem caucus mtg, characterizing it as a 'strategic move'. In her presser, she didn't give that away. Jennifer's pc is good.

2-"..If McConnell and Republicans refuse to have an actual trial and three Republican senators are not brave enough to object, Pelosi could deploy a backup plan that also addresses Republicans’ professed concerns that they wait on witnesses Trump has blocked by assertion of a

Good morning/afternoon/whatever, fellow travelers in the #WarOnChristmas! Sorry for the late start; I swear eggnog had nothing to do with it.

It’s December 12. With only 13 persecuting days left till Christmas, be sure to wish a right-wing Christian a happy Constitution Day!
What’s that? You didn’t know it was Constitution Day? Well it is. In Russia.

There, the 1993 Constitution, honored with today’s holiday, increasingly means whatever Putin wants it to.

That makes it exactly the sort of constitution our “Merry Christmas” maniacs would prefer.
We thus route our enemy in the #WarOnChristmas with a double bind. If the insist on only accepting “Merry Christmas,” they are refusing to celebrate the Constitution of the Russian Federation, thus in a backwards sort of way more or less taking a stand in support of rule of law.

"Fear is the mind-killer," but movie production is a close second. Today in my pulp Iook at films to watch over Christmas I look back at a fabulous flawed movie based on a well-loved epic story. No, not Condorman...

...this is the story of David Lynch's Dune! #ThursdayThoughts
Dune is an epic story: conceived by Frank Herbert after studying the Oregon Dunes in 1957 he spent five years researching, writing, and revising it before publication. He would go on to write a further five sequels.
Dune is a multi-layered story and a hugely immersive novel. It's about a future where the mind rather the computer is king, aided by the mysterious spice melange. It also has more feuding houses than Game of Thrones.

#Thread: After @EliseStefanik’s national meltdown many of you joined #TeamTedra, because you know that her partisan theatrics are bad for the country.

But today I want to tell you about the things Stefanik has done to hurt #NY21 families.
Despite her campaign promises to improve #healthcare for Northern New Yorkers; @EliseStefanik voted to kick 64,000 of us (my family included) off their insurance.

She voted to gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

She voted to make RX drugs more expensive.
.@EliseStefanik voted to cut hundreds of billions of dollars from Medicare and Social Security.

In 2012 she chaired the @GOP platform committee and wrote the plan to privatize #SocialSecurity and turn #Medicare into a voucher program.

So(1) the people at @UL want to build a #monument to former Tanaiste Mary Harney who in 2002 used the Gov Air Corps (CASA fishery, aircraft, to fly to and open of her friends off licence in 2002 #Manorhamilton #Leitrim
#TrueStory #ThursdayThoughts
#Ireland #wildAtlanticway
2. The aircraft flew to #Sligo on December 14th 2002.
The Progressive Democrats leader flew out to meet barrister friend Fergus O'Hagan to open his off licence with her husband Brian Geoghegan - at an estimated cost of EUR2,500 an hour. #TrueStory
3. After the flight Mary and her husband were collected by a government car, driven over from #Dublin that day, and taken to #Manorhamilton with a garda escort.

I’m one of the academy’s throwaway PhDs. And I’m incredibly lucky I’m using my historical training to write policy analysis, journalism, and commentary for broader audiences. I couldn’t be doing this without support via @Patreon:

My writing and speaking career, which does relate to my postgraduate education but also goes well beyond it, *might* eventually become self-sustaining without substantial support from readers like you. But this model can’t replace the tenure-track system.

We “superfluous” PhDs have to deal with the psychological pain of being discarded by the academy and find our bearings after receiving little or no education about what transferable skills we might have and how to transfer them. We’re often seen as failures by colleagues.
