.@WhatsApp has made connecting with friends and family so much simpler and easier. It has defacto become the primary mode of communication especially around the festive season to communicate our wishes. On NYE, approx 100 Bn messages were exchanged on #WhatsApp (thread)
Out of this, approx 20 Bn were sent from India. Fair game considering 25% of WhatsApp’s global user base comes from India. Multiple #product #innovations seen by #WhatsApp users across the world have originated in India
Which is why, it is surprising that @WhatsApp on #iPhone has such a broken experience compared to #WhatsApp on #Android.

She's 29 & all she wants is marriage. My friend was her ex, a player. Told me she was good on bed but ever since he broke her She promised herself no more sex til her wedding night. So the horny me got her number. My friend had a bet with me saying I couldn't sex her🤔
I knew what she needed badly, I knew her weaknesses too, so I paid more attentions to those areas of her life. I was all responsible around her, I started acting so nice till she fell in love with me. She said she's never been loved this way and she sees a good husband in me 😎😏
I never spoke about sex to her all along to make her feel I wasn't about it. I'm sure she was surprised.

On a good day (my birthday), She came visiting. Walked into my room naked & started weeping. She wouldn't stop saying she loves me and thank you for loving me back, thank you

Hashtags: #Diakonie, #EvangelischeKirche, #WhatsApp, #Datenschutz In einem Betrieb der Diakonie wurden offenbar "wie üblich" Daten von Kunden und Daten von Arbeiterinnen per WhatsApp "abgewickelt". In einem Beschwerdeschreiben an den Hessischen Beauftragten für Datenschutz
und Informationsfreiheit wurde angegeben, dass "Dienstpläne mit Kundendaten auf die privaten Smartphones" der Mitarbeiterinnen weitergeleitet würden. Dabei sollen in einer WhatsApp-Gruppe PDF-Dateien mit Adressen weitergegeben worden sein. Der Brief liegt
dem WRKSHP vor. Die Nutzung dieses Instant-Messaging-Dienstes gilt aber als "deliktisch"[1], weil WhatsApp als Teil der Facebook Inc. grundsätzlich "eigentlich" geschützte Daten weiterverwendet, für die Vermarktung dieses Parallelwebs Facebook. Auch wenn manche Medienforscher

Originally written by my friend Wisdom.


In a mother's womb were two babies.

One asked the other: Do you believe in life after delivery?
He replies: Why, Of course. There has to be something after delivery. Maybe we are here to prepare ourselves for what we will be later.

"Nonsense" said the other.
There is no life after delivery.
How did you even think that? You are making so many assumptions. What would that life be?

He replied:I don't know but there will be more light than there is here. Maybe we will walk with our legs and eat with our mouths

Heres Aharon Almog-Assoulin, a retired Israeli security official who until recently served on the town council in a suburb of #TelAviv. He was one of the undercover agents used by #BlackCube hired by #NSOGroup to #spy on #CitizenLab journalists exposing #Pegasus among other jobs.
Heres a partial list of #cybersecurity firms linked directly to #cyber weapons dealer #NSOGroup that targeted Indian journalists and activists using #Pegasus. Almost all of them spawned out of Israeli intelligence #Unit8200. #WhatsApp #WhatsAppSpywareRow
Acc to 2016 price list, #NSOGroup charges customers $650,000 to hack 10 devices on top of $500,000 installation fee. If 41 Indians were targeted it will be 4 times the fee + installation. That comes to a whopping 31,00,000 USD equals 21,96,80,725.00 INR. Thanks to @Kodungolan737

#Pegasus was created by Israeli #cyber weapons dealer #NSOGroup whose parent company Francisco Partners also owns #CrossMatch contracted by #UIDAI for #Aadhaar. This was revealed by us already in 2017. Took almost 2 years for Indian media to catchup. #RIP…
Hopefully @Swamy39 alerted the PMO as promised regarding this threat from Israeli #cyber weapons firm #NSOGroup that created spying tool #Pegasus and whose sister concern with links to #CIA was awarded #Aadhaar contract.
Above article was written in 2017. Blackstone made a deal to buy NSO Group but was dropped after heavy protests. So backed by Novalpina Capital stakes were bought back by NSO Group in Feb 2019. The #Aadhaar contract and the spying happened when Francisco Partners owned NSO Group.

This fall will be remembered in #Kazakhstan 🇰🇿 for a wave of anti-China protests there. Why ppl are not happy w/ growing 🇨🇳 influence in the region? Why the leadership of the country cannot solve the problems w/ 🇨🇳? Here's my take for @CarnegieRussia:…
At first, while the protests were not political, the authorities dealt with them calmly. But later when the Democratic Choice of Kazakhstan party (banned as an extremist group there) and it's leader Mukhtar #Ablyazov took the lead, the rallies were all broken up by police. 1/
Officials tried to deflate the uproar by blaming everything on false information and “certain forces.” Some anonymous sources showed anti-Chinese protests as the sign of frictions within the ruling elite. 2/

Stop spreading lies: The #WhatsApp E2E encryption is enable for everyone whatever your ROM or if your device is rooted or not.

The wording here is weird but technical I guarantee that E2E encryption is enable for everyone
ffs, I know we are in 2019 but before saying something you should verify your claims.

For now:
- There is no backdoor in WhatsApp
- E2E encryption is enable for everyone

Always check your claims folks!

#Fear is the #WeaponOfTyranny.
When slave owners in America wanted to control any desire their black slaves might have to escape or rebel they did not need to break every slave's legs. That would have been to lose an asset. They #lynched the odd slave to send a chilling message.
When the Taliban in #Afghanistan wanted girls out of school, and women in #burqa, they did not beat up or terrorise all women. They merely brutalised - in public - the odd woman to send a chilling message.
When #India's #RightWing fascists wanted to keep the minorities (muslims, dalits, women) in their place in the heirarchy they merely had to send out the #LynchMobs on the odd occasion, video the atrocity and share it on #WhatsApp to send a chilling message

There was this tweet from @GreatGameIndia about tests done on samples of table and cooking salt from 2 Indian companies / brands - Tata Salt and Sambhar Salt. Apparently they contained 'high' levels of Potassium Ferrocyanide. (#OMG, ferrocyanide? why arent we all dying?!!?)
The report in GGINews, an online newspaper, quoted a certain Shiv Shankar Gupta, Chairman of Godhum Grains & Farms Products, that the test by America West Analytical Laboratories (AWAL) showed 4.71 mg/kg in Sambhar Salt and 1.85 mg/kg in Tata's product.
Apparently the story was picked up by IANS and carried by several outlets. I saw it retweeted by @PragyaTiwari I had previously received a #WhatsApp forward in family group rife with fake news.
I smelled something fake about it and decided to look into it.

Un po' di info interessanti su #Libra, la nuova criptovaluta di #Facebook

Prima cosa da sapere: è una cosa ENORME, e tra un anno la userà chiunque in occidente. C'è dentro Mastercard e VISA, ma pure Uber, PayPal, Spotify, eBay. C'è di mezzo pure Coinbase, società finanziaria che finora era stata famosa soprattuto perché vendeva #Bitcoin facilmente.
Il video con cui viene presentata #Libra è particolarmente interessante per la narrazione: viene presentata come la *valuta globale*, che permetterà di superare i limiti delle attuali monete e permettere a tutti (a prescindere dal luogo) di partecipare al mercato globale.

Einmal #Neuwahl bitte.
Denn langsam dreht #NieMehrCDU echt durch.

• (Whatsapp-)Chats sollen lesbar werden.
• Regulierung der #Meinungsfreiheit
• Nun auch Smart Home Auswertung.
Ich meine, da muss man nicht mal mehr Wanzen im Haus versteckenverstecken.
Dafür hat man ja jetzt #Alexa.

Jetzt noch so ein Ding im Auto und wan weiß wann wer wo ist.
Die Gewohnheiten oder wofür man sich interessiert kann man auch aufgrund dieser Daten ganz einfach ermitteln.
Mit wem ich wann und wo geschrieben habe ist auch ganz einfach herauszufinden wenn #Whatsapp & Co. ihre Daten lesbar an Behörden übergeben müssen.

Und meine Möglichkeit mich anonym zu informieren oder mich auszutauschen ist mir der #Klarnamenspflicht vorbei.
