Here’s a story that would've been funny if it wasn’t so worrying. @RSF_inter publish their latest index on press freedom in which #Greece has dramatically dropped from position 70 to 108. To those closely following political developments in the country, this was no surprise. 1/
#Greece, after conservative New Democracy took power in 2019, has been in a downward spiral of #democratic_backsliding that affects every level of the polity: overpowering the executive, undermining the independence of institutions, assaults on minority rights & press freedom. 2/
Regarding the media sphere in particular, the conservative government has consistently tried to silence critical voices, while rewarding media outlets willing to turn a blind eye to their (mis)conduct & amplify their propaganda. 3/

#SevenPrinciples of #Eagles for #Investors & #Traders:
Eagles fly alone and at high altitudes. They don't fly with sparrows or other small birds.

Stay away from sparrows and ravens, those that bring you down. Eagles fly with Eagles. Keep good company.
#SevenPrinciples of #Eagles for #Investors & #Traders:
Eagles have Focus that can run far. No matter the obstacles, the eagle will not move his focus from the prey until he grabs it.

Have a vision and remain focused no matter what the obstacle and you will succeed. 2/7
#SevenPrinciples of #Eagles for #Investors & #Traders:
Eagles do not eat dead things. They feed only on fresh prey.
#Trolls & #Babaji type this is for you! You aren't our lunch or even dinner. Okay? 3/7

Not sure where to start this thread, but @Trevornoah
& @TheDailyShow have made a serious error of judgment in giving platform to a known charlatan. As others have pointed, we wish they'd spent more time researching this gentleman before having him on. 1/n
We've been thinking about this for long: "Scientists, corporations, mystics, and movie stars have convinced policymakers around the world that a massive campaign to plant trees should be an essential element of global climate policy." #TrillionTrees #Restoration 2/n

@cookie_trader @GBNEWS Bet you also believed #AlQaeda & #ISIS videos

Hint if someone shouts all non emergency personnel clear emergency room but cameraman still filming


If a surgeon breaks off saving an ickle baybee to do a video interview with #Channel4akeNews

@cookie_trader @GBNEWS Even if an explosion was in the #Ukraine

How do you know it wasn't the #Fascist #AntiSeparatist forces attacking the #IndependenceFighters during the last 7 years

Or trying to attack the #RussianPeaceKeepers now rescuing them

Or #FalseFlag operations

@cookie_trader @GBNEWS And even if you see a current photo or video from the #Russian rescue of #DonbassSeparatists in #Ukraine you don't know where in the Ukraine it was taken

Or what it actually shows… Image

#Pandemie ist für mich das große (traurige) Erwachen:
Handlungsfähigkeit der #Politik zerrieben zwischen #Förderalismus, Unfähigkeit und Geltungsbedürfnis einzelner.
Gesellschaft gespalten von #Wissenschaftsfeinden auf Basis von gesellschaftlich toleriertem #Aberglauben.
#Medien setzen auf #falsebalance und #ClickBait. Vermeintliche #Experten verkaufen gedruckte Lügen und machen sich die Taschen voll, #EchteExperten werden verunglimpft, angefeindet und mit dem Tod bedroht.
#Kinder werden nicht geschützt, sondern #Durchseuchung preis gegeben. #Maskenpflicht zum größeren Übel als #LongCovid erklärt.
"Randgruppen" werden vergessen, #Aufklärung über #Impfung findet kaum statt und wenn überhaupt nur auf Deutsch und bitte in Eigeninitiative.

Bueno, había prometido un hilo sobre el tema de los #bots y las afirmaciones de @JordifarreFcb . La verdad es que no tenía muchas ganas de hacerlo, pero como lo prometido es deuda, y soy hombre de palabra, aquí os va 👇 (será largo...😎)
Primero hay que hacer algunas aclaraciones muy básicas, ya que, por lo que veo y escucho, existe cierta confusión sobre los términos y la mayoría de las personas, incluyendo al citado pre-candidato, utiliza el término #bot indistintamente.
Un #bot no es más que un programa que controla una cuenta, en este caso de Twitter, utilizando su interfaz. Es decir, es una cuenta automatizada. De hecho, el término #bot viene de "robot". El #bot responde a una serie de indicaciones programadas. Image

**Public Service Announcement***

I've done a few of these announcements. Their intention is to make people aware of particularly abusive or dangerous trolls.......

#FBPE #StopBrexit #RejoinEU #GTTO #Brexit #BrexitReality #Trolls #StopBullying

Thread below.....
I could just block and move on, but then someone else will have to deal with it.
I figure its in the best interests of the Remain/Rejoin movement, and the British people as a whole to be aware of this guy, and block him now so you won't be subjected to his trolling later.

If we're all silent the cycle just continues over and over and over again.

Twitter & Propaganda:
In Pakistan, the use of social media is on rise. However, there are contradictory views on usage-percentage of each social medium, i.e. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest. According to estimates of AlphaPro there were 35 million social media
users in Pakistan by March 2018. Out of 35 million 92% were Facebook users. Percentage of Twitter users was 0.1%. However, according to estimates of GlobalStats Stat Counter, the percentage of Twitter users in Pakistan by March 2019 was 5%. Five percent users make 1.75 million
out of 35 million active social media users. Though this number is still very low as compared to Facebook users, but the rapid growth in Twitter users is reflection of increase in Twitter popularity among Pakistani social media users.

After the wonderful @EANBoard #SoMe4Epis module on social media for public health professionals, on request:

[THREAD] Here’s my bag of resources and explanations for beginners, to get started on social media

Kicking off with an introduction to social media for scientists by @hollybik & @MiriamGoldste

All in the familiar academic format of a journal article:…

So why engage in social media as an epidemiologist or public health professional?

It helps to build trust in science!

The far-right attacking the anti-fascists with a hammer, then switching the narratives claiming that the anti-fascists attacked them with a hammer. #Antifa means "anti-fascists." It is not an organization. If you are against fascists, YOU are antifa. #Portland
“Smear campaigns” against #antifa are used to create the image of internal enemy and “scapegoats.” Since Charlottesville, such campaigns against #Antifa became a compulsory exercise for #AltRight, #Kremlin #trolls and #Bots. #disinformation is an important tool in cyberwar.
In 2017, the online campaign used fake #antifa (an umbrella term for anti-fascist protestors) Twitter accounts to claim anti-fascists promoted violence against women supporting Trump or white supremacy. @bellingcat research showed the evidence of campaign orchestration on 4chan.

The far-right spread disinfo on El Paso "siege"/"violence" planned "by Antifa" 3 days before Aug 3 shooting. A peaceful action was planned by native Americans/POC LGBT organization BorderResistance (no affiliation/mention of antifa) #ElPaso #elpasoshooter
The far-right and the Kremlin carried out an orchestrated attack on antifa for several years. A good thread by @RVAwonk

Hoy #Verificat ha dado fiesta a su CM y me ha cedido su cuenta para hablaros sobre "perfiles falsos". Soy @congosto, doctora en ingeniería telemática, y me dedico a cazar astrosurfers y otras especies en twitter.

Estamos a las puertas de la campaña a las elecciones municipales de Barcelona. Y las redes sociales son un campo de donde arañar hasta el último voto
Aunque Twitter no es uno de los mundos virtuales más poblados (un 26,2% según el CIS) sus mensajes son públicos y están muy vinculados al periodismo y se amplifican en los medios. Lo explico en más detalle en la web de #Verificat…

#Troll expert @GingerGorman on the pattern of police after mass shootings saying “We had no idea, he wasn’t on a watch list” despite supremacist boards on 8chan inspiring the likes of #Christchurch. “I’m not tech-y and I could find this stuff - why couldn’t the police?” #nwf19
Murder as a product of online radicalisation is “an emergency” @GingerGorman says to @JaneCaro. “The internet is dangerous...and nobody is calling (social media companies) to account” #trolling #NWF19
There’s a stack of recommendations from a senate inquiry to strengthen Australian laws to crack down on cyber hate and harassment, and “they’re just sitting there” @GingerGorman says. #NWF19

How #Israel-i Propaganda (#Hasbara) Works: #TheLuntzDocument
If you want to understand how the #propaganda works you need to read the Luntz document -- "The Key," Luntz says, "is the Claim that the Fight is Over Ideology, Not Land. About Terror, & Not Territory."

Everyone's heard of #FakeNews. Before it was called fake news, it was called #disinformation. The goal is to cause confusion and chaos, so people don't know who to trust or what to believe. THREAD 1 #RussianCollaborators #Propaganda #FridayFeeling #FridayMotivation
Disinformation promotes so much misleading & false info that people lose faith, give up. Disinformation is designed to weaken the enemy by discrediting it with lies and "leaks" of damaging "info". Hint: the enemy is us, the resistance. 2…

In past 10 hrs, besides being trolled, I've been searched on wiki, Facebk (screenshots of my personal acc floated), Instagram & past tweets
A multi directional "HATE ATTACK" has been kind of triggered based on ONE Tweet, where I have linked caste behind violence of #Dalitkids
Regardless of the argument that single tweet has been floated to prove I don't know what I am talking about & that I am dumb.
