Altijd leuk als mensen een #thread maken over hun ideeën.
@PietLekkerkerk maakte een thread over de #EU-standpunten van #FvD omdat hij vindt dat deze standpunten onzinnig zijn.
Hier👇zijn thread en mijn antwoord.
Piet vraagt (tweet 3👇) naar de onderbouwing voor 2 beweringen van #FvD:

-dat de EU ons miljarden kost
-dat economieën in Zuid-Europa kapot gaan door de #EU

Eerst gaan we kijken naar de miljarden.
Piet stelt dat het ‘maar’ 1 miljard per jaar is.
Zijn linkje werkt niet meer, dus ik heb zelf even gegoogeld en kwam hier terecht.
Volgens de EU zelf👇 betaalde NL in 2017 bijna 2 miljard meer dan het ontving.

6th Release of #MuellerMemos includes FOIA of Rick GATES 302 where he is asked about #CambridgeAnalytica, PSY Group, and providing data and campaign strategy to Kosnstantin KILMNICK and more. via @JasonLeopold
Rick Gates did not remember PSY Group stuff it seems. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯…
“Looking back, he can’t say for if that’s true.” —Clovis in the FOIA’d #MuellerMemos essentially doubting what would be Bill Barr’s masterful whitewash job of the Mueller Report.

1. anche se ne ho parlato già ieri sera in inglese, rispondo a chi mi continua a chiedere dell'articolo del #DailyBeast, secondo il quale #ArronBanks avrebbe vantato un canale di comunicazione con Julian #Assange e #WikiLeaks, che trovate qui in inglese:…
2. ho spiegato ieri sera perché sono completamente scettica riguardo a gente che va a vantarsi in giro di "un canale" con Julian #Assange: sono anni che #Guardian, #DailyBeast, ecc pubblicano questi articoli senza uno straccio di prova
3. dunque secondo le ricostruzioni giornalistiche, #ArronBanks sarebbe stato l'uomo della #Brexit in combutta con i #russi

"The man who bankrolled the campaign for Britain to quit the European Union boasted about a backchannel to WikiLeaks after Brexit leader Nigel Farage’s secret meeting with Julian Assange at the Ecuadorean embassy in London"…
Oh dear Mr @arron_banks tsk tsk... thought he was so clever and must be feeling rather worried right now.
@Arron_banks And pièce de résistance! MORE corroborating my evidence to parliament on #LEAVEEU working with #CambridgeAnalytica - it seems from #Bannon actions they just never got paid. This supports other evidence gathered here:

#EPWConversations: Today, @digitaldutta, one of our panellists for #DataSocieties, will be talking about data and elections from @epw_in's handle. We invite you to join the conversation and ask questions.
Data is being used to influence us, and our society everywhere. Data is being weaponised during elections now, to spread misinformation using micro-targeting. This essentially involves influencing every individual, uniquely based on their personal data. | @digitaldutta
Politicians have always influenced voters based on their caste, religion and class, and this identity politics has been important for communities to claim their rights as well. This is changing, with new networks to influence voters using their personal data. | @digitaldutta

Back in 2016 TN Sen. @MarshaBlackburn was selected as one of only 4 members of Congress to serve as co-chair of Trump's transition team along with the likes of Michael Flynn, Rebekah Mercer & Newt Gingrich.

[#MondayMotivation #MoscowMarsha Megathread]…
What did @MarshaBlackburn do to earn such close proximity to the President-elect?

Did Transition look the other way while its closely allied org, the Trump Inaugural Committee, took bribes from Russia-friendly Ukrainians?

This is important, of course, in light of the fact that Blackburn's 10+ year campaign org chair Kline Preston kept ties to close Putin ally Alexander Torshin as late as 2018. Preston also had ties to Ukraine starting in the 1990s.…

#CambridgeAnalytica and the end of elections… #DataWeaponization #HindsightIs2020
SCL/#CambridgeAnalytica undertook an unprecedented, large and wide-ranging political perception survey of 47,000 households across Kenya.

Then...they built a political party and a communications strategy around it.
2017 election
Cambridge Analytica proposed a similar plan of action that paired these analogue strategies with digital strategies to help Uhuru Kenyatta win the election under his new party, Jubilee.

'@carolecadwalla was blasted for saying #cambridgeanalytica was involved in brexit

Cambridge Analytica took Leave .eu & AIQ ran VoteLeave side. Both funded by the Mercer's.

The Mercer's funded brexit?

Both companies, cambridge analytica & AIQ came from Mercer funded campaigns
But, let's also see the overdue report by the @ICOnews who were looking at the last of the #cambridgeanalytica servers they seized, which was hoped to be completed in Autumn just gone.

#SCL #Ghana
So...SCL (same people who misused US/UK data, have worked in defense industry—#CAMBRIDGEANALYTICA’s parent co—got a contract in GHANA connected to the building of umm ...hospitals. #Hindsightis2020
Through “experiments”/surveys/focus groups, SCL built the biggest database in West Africa.

⚠️ SCL laced the surveys/q’s with HIDDEN POLITICAL questions.

📌Reminder this was about hospitals. So this wasn’t just consumer data. It was consumer HEALTHCARE DATA.
After the end of their contract with #SCL, the govt in Ghana took the database SCL compiled, went to work for the opposition party...and won the election. #Hindsightis2020

🔥NEW #CambridgeAnalytica leak shows ‘out of control’ global election manipulation industry, exposes dark money behind Trump, 2016 experimentation on American voters, manipulating vulnerable targets w/ fear-based messages, propaganda tactics for 2020…
New #CambridgeAnalytica documents are from whistleblower Brittany Kaiser’s email accounts & hard drives—“thousands and thousands more pages which showed a ‘breadth and depth of the work’ that went ‘way beyond what people think they know about ‘the Cambridge Analytica scandal’”
Ex-#CambridgeAnalytica employee turned whistleblower, Brittany Kaiser went public after the UK election in December: “It’s so abundantly clear our electoral systems are wide open to abuse. I’m very fearful about what is going to happen in the US election later this year”

Location: Brazil
Document dates: 2015-2018


#Brazil, 2016. #APonteEstratégia - once a joint venture w/ #CambridgeAnalytica as #CAPonte let CA operate in-country. Portuguese-language brochures peddled services. $$$ was spent setting up offices & translating everything. Was the "work" w/ #Bolsonaro?

Data analytics firm #SCLGroup shut down amidst scandal when extensive data work in the shadows of elections globally was called into question via subsidiary #CambridgeAnalytica. To avoid document confiscation, SCL went bankrupt. Its time to release the files.

Democracy has been hacked. #HindsightIs2020. Use this! Download it & pore over every detail. Together, the public can shine a light on what happened in dark places. #CambridgeAnalytica is just one example. It’s foresight we need to stop this from happening again.
The documents are organized into topical folders with a safe download link from a private server. You will not be targeted or tracked, but you will be thanked. Together we can assert our data rights & save democracy.

If any of you haven’t yet seen @thegreathackdoc grab your 🥤 and 🍿 get comfy in front of Netflix and remember you are only seeing a tiny sliver of the full global #cambridgeanalytica story when you watch. There’s a lot more coming in my upcoming book.
If you haven’t yet seen it do, it’s a very good introduction to the problems of #datamisuse and our elections, propaganda and #disinformation and why I argue we need to be thinking about independent regulation of social media platforms and the #influenceindustry #stratcom #IO
And now there’s the added excitement that it’s shortlisted for the #Oscars2020! I could not be more amazed that a project I was involved with as a researcher has made it this far! But raising awareness isn’t enough we need to continue the fight for policy reform.

I’m here at NY State Senate hearing on #S5642 #NYPrivacyAct and will offer some commentary…
@Partnership4NYC opens with testimony that seeks to gut the draft bill to take a far more pro-business stance. They want opt-out instead of opt-in and to strike the private right of action while delaying roll-out to 2 years from 6 months. #S6542
Business Council of New York State prefers federal law and FTC enforcement. Seems to want to narrow concern to data breach rather than address data abuse. They even object to basic data request rights! claiming it’s onerous for business (despite CCPA/GDPR). #S5642

On Wednesday, July 17, at a Donald Trump re-election rally in North Carolina, a crowd of people chanted “send her back” in reference to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D – Minn) and her country of origin, Somalia, from which she escaped as a refugee when she was a child. [THREAD 1/]
The media has been ablaze with news articles covering this event since. 2/
A recent article published in The Atlantic pointed out that the specific phrase “send her back” is listed on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) official webpage as an example of discrimination based on national origin if a co-worker or boss use the same phrase. 3/

Occupati di cinema, non discutere di cose che non conosci.
Tu vorresti consegnare i #dati di milioni di italiani ad una cazzo di società #USA coinvolta in #CambridgeAnalytica, il più grande scandalo di #cessione di #dati a terzi nella storia della Rete? 🤔
Ci sei, o ci fai? 🤨
Per concludere, una lezione (gratis) del Prof. Stefano Zanero | su Twitter, @raistolo.
Buona lettura, @GabrieleMuccino…
@raistolo @GabrieleMuccino Poi, se non si accontenta, @GabrieleMuccino, dia una lettura anche a questo.
E' tutto (anche per @MaurizioBaraban, che dovrebbe continuare ad occuparsi di videogiochi e non di ciò che non conosce).…

.@repfranklucas makes the obvious point that one of the issue with people being "underbanked" is lack of institutional trust. He asks Zuck why people who are distrustful of banks would trust FB. Zuck - in contradiction of earlier media statements - basically says people trust FB.
@RepFrankLucas .@RepGregoryMeeks asks Zuckerberg if FB has worked with any minority-development depository institutions, given that he cares about the "unbanked" so much.

Zuckerberg admits he has no idea if FB has done this.

@RepFrankLucas @RepGregoryMeeks #Libra does not offer bank accounts.

#Libra does not offer bank accounts.

#Libra does not offer bank accounts.

Tallying the obstruction in plain sight.
I think we know the answer already.
45 is using his office for his own personal benefit, not the good of our nation.

You know what this says, Anderson?

It says 45 & $ondland are obstructing justice in plain sight.…

Hidden or not, obstruction is an impeachable offense.

1/ thread on excellent new episode of @reveal on #geneticgenealogy, the use of #DNA profiling to target criminal suspects, which features many of my "favorite" themes… #consumergenetics #geneticdata
2/ theme: researchers who can't burn down the world fast enough, here in the form of one of the top genetic genealogists in the world (whose name is in the transcript), who sounds completely uninterested in the obvious perils of this tech, so pushes on regardless
3/ theme: "crowdforcing," when the data someone else shares inherently shares information about you and other people who have in no way consented to their data being shared at all (comments toward end by Maryland law prof Natalie Ram)
