Back at #SECU for the next round of votes on Bill #C59, in time to see the #NDP motion to give the Intelligence Commissioner powers to go beyond simply saying "yes" or "no" on authorizations be voted down. #cdnpoli
Next Liberal motion, also proposed by Greens, is to ask the #IC to publish decisions not only when rejecting an authorization, but also in approving it (something @ICLMG is in favour of). Passes.
NDP motion that would allow IC to ask for additional information, rather than saying "yes" or "no" to an authorization. Notes that the current #CSE commissioner suggested this amendment #C59#secu
The Tory's control more than half of councils, nearly double Labour. Losing control of even half of them is unrealistic, and even if it happened under fixed term government I can all but guarantee it won't result in a General Election.
A Prime Minister calls a GE under two circumstances: 1) They are miles ahead in the polls and think they can increase their majority (as in 2017) 2) They have suffered a humiliating defeat or scandal.
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.
So if Steve Bannon, Rebekah Mercer, and Alexander Nix cheated on the Brexit referendum you don’t think they would do the same thing in Ameri…wait what was in that email that Trey Gowdy showed to Bannon when they dragged him down to Congress? axios.com/steve-bannon-c…
allez, c’est parti pour la suite du #Zuckhearing devant le congrès. pour le style, on verse toujours dans la fanfic live report différé, en français.
nouveau thread pour l’occasion, histoire que vous n’ayez pas 400 tweets à dérouler. (je pense notamment à ceux qui ont des apps de merde android.) vous pouvez retrouver la première partie de l’histoire, devant le sénat, ici :
j’ai 4.1k mots et 24.5k signes à publier : comptez donc une grosse centaine de tweets (ça paraît beaucoup, mais en vrai c’est un peu moins que ce que poste @Pipomantis en une journée ー je dis pas ça à l’arrache je l’avais mesuré avec l’api twitter back in 2013.)
Parscale distances himself from #CambridgeAnalytica today, per the article above. But immediately after the election, he was on TV using their terminology (echoed by Theresa Hong on BBC) while describing their success.
I checked the Twitter Trend statistics for #Kathua and found that it peaked interest late on 9th April 2018. The day @RahulGandhi ‘s farce of a fast was ridiculed.
The Kathua case happened in January 2018. keyhole.co/preview
This is the world map of #Kathua tweets on trend analysis. Interesting?
I’m not discrediting or denying your emotions and rage about the #Kathua case. You are right to feel angry, I feel much the same.
But what exactly are you angry about? Who are you letting use your anger?
At N°9 in the Brit EU-#FakeNews Hit Parade: The Daily Telegraph, which is now almost as bad as red-tops for fake news when it comes to the EU, claimed the EU wanted to ban that most famous of British icons, the doubled-decker bus.
On a bcp tourné en rond ces dernières min pendant l'audition #Zuckerberg. Un sénateur a demandé si FB utilisait les données conversationnelles de Whatsapp, zuck a dit que non, puis une sénatrice a parlé des options de protection des contenus perso et Zuck a tourné autour du pot.
Un autre sénateur (Coons) pose une question intéressante et plus pointue sur l'usage qui peut être fait des données de ciblage (cibler les accros aux jeux quand on est un casino, les ados pour des pilules minceur, les alcooliques pour les marques d'alcool, etc) #zuckerberg
Coons a également demandé confirmation des actions entreprises par FB pour les ciblages excluants (ne pas montrer une offre d'emploi aux non-caucasiens par ex), Zuck commence à répondre et on coche la case du bingo "built in a dormroom" #Zuckerberg
Victims of the Kogan/Chancellor quiz scam that deceptively harvested their Facebook friends data and matched it to their voter registrations have begun to come forward. The deluge of realization begins for 87 million tomorrow. #CambridgeAnalyticanyti.ms/2HhHRsE
NYT and all journalists should mention Chancellor in the same breath as Kogan. Chancellor was hired by Facebook under controversial circumstances and works there to this day.
Voters were matched and psychologically profiled for 75¢ each per the contract between Kogan/Chancellor and Alexander Nix of SCL Group per the Wylie docs published by Parliament.
Just revisiting an appearance on CBS by Matt Ozcowski, head of product at #CambridgeAnalytica, right after the election.
Just revisiting this CNN segment from November 3, 2016 on #CambridgeAnalytica which describes Facebook quiz enrichment data model process and their leave campaign work.
Just revisiting this Kelly File interview with Brad Parscale on November 15, 2016. Notice he uses #CambridgeAnalytica terminology of “Universes” that Theresa Hong also used in her BBC interview. He since denies their role or value in campaign.
1/ Liz it is not that you reported on Nigel & Jacob throwing some fish into the Thames. It’s that you did not also report on many many many more people marching against #Brext. The logic given for. It doing so does not add up.
2/ it is also that you did not raise critical & basic questions in regard to said stunt throwing of fish into the Thames. It is the total Government pro #Brexit. Has exhibited by @BBCNews in recent years.
After an intense vote (see below), it was decided that my 5k-followers celebration thread should be on genre and fake news. A topic which I, for fairly strange non-standard reasons, happen to know a little bit about.
