“Let’s be real. We have a grandpa-grandma Congress that is unable to understand the apps that shape the modern world.”

That and other thoughts on Facebook and privacy live on @NPR's @MorningEdition now, and available at this link:…
@NPR @MorningEdition We also talked about the cultural tendency nowadays to recast plutocratic predation as issues of personal responsibility for victims.

“When you #DeleteFacebook as an individual, you are personalizing what is, in fact, an issue of systems and the abuse of power."
Me: Facebook is a predatory monopoly.

@NoelKing: “The question of whether or not Facebook is a monopoly — you could put two economists into a room and get a fistfight.”

Me: “It might be a weak fistfight.”

Yeah, deleting Facebook is cool, but have you ever tried regulating it?
I admire the #DeleteFacebook impulse. But it takes so much coordination and scale to work, and most users are not American. And it also owns WhatsApp and Instagram.

It’s too much to take on as consumers.

This is why we have governments.
Trying to fight a predatory, politically connected monopoly through heroic personal responsibility doesn't work.

You can't fight the sugar companies just by dieting harder.

You can't fight Amazon just by buying a few books locally.

System problems must be solved systemically.

@Facebook “used us for crisis PR...They are more interested in making themselves look good & passing the buck…I strongly believe that they are spreading fake news on behalf of hostile foreign powers and authoritarian governments.” ~@brooklynmarie

HT @ChiefCovfefe
Facebook was pushing reporters to prioritize debunking misinformation that *affected Facebook advertisers*, which @brooklynmarie thought crossed a line: “You’re not doing journalism anymore. You’re doing #propaganda.”🤬

Another fact-checker who has long worked on the #Facebook partnership said they were demoralized, saying that #Facebook is “a terrible company and, on a personal level, I don’t want to have anything to do with them.”🔥

Thread sur Edward Snowden, les lanceurs d’alertes et les données personnelles dans la société d’aujourd’hui ça se passe ici >>> ⤵️
Juin 2013 : Le @washingtonpost et le @guardian révèlent l’existence d’un vaste système d’espionnage international des communications par la NSA. A l’origine des ces informations ? Edward Snowden ancien employé de la NSA. #CoursCultNum @LpTicArc
Commence alors une crise politique et diplomatique d’ampleur internationale. La NSA collecte toutes sortes de données : mails, téléphones, adresses ip etc... sur le territoire américain mais aussi sur une très grande partie du globe. #CoursCultNum @LpTicArc

But until @Facebook self-deletes, this is a key reason to #DeleteFacebook and run screaming into the night. They could access your pictures that you never uploaded to their platform.
If you wanted to compromise a politician, judge, law enforcement officer, military commander, athlete, actor, journalist, or anyone else, accessing their private photos might be one way to do it.
If you’re a hostile intelligence service with FB info of any military leader, if they used the app on a phone or kept pictures of combat operations or plans or anything Facebook could get it. While @ggreenwald complained about the NSA this was the true surveillance state. Evil.

Narrative: "My top priority has always been our social mission of connecting people and bringing the world together" ~ Zuck.

Reality: "People ... I don't know why. They "trust me". Dumb fucks." ~ Zuck.

His top priority is using people to sell targeted ads. #deletefacebook
It all started with Facebook's Timeline, an intrusive interface designed to push ads. Other things followed: recording phone logs, hacks, 3rd party apps snooping, discriminating users, nudging for users to provide more and more and more information, etc.

Read 178 tweets… This is purely about profit. Alex Jones being nuts gets views and shares, and Facebook knows that Robert Mueller won’t sue them. So they let Jones openly defame a man and incite violence against him.… I’d say that they are going to get someone killed with their blind eye toward violence incitement, but they already have. Genocidal propaganda has led to deaths in Myanmar, and FB failed to deal with the problem appropriately.
Individuals crowing on social media and at dinner parties about how they are into #DeleteFacebook may feel self-righteous, but that really isn’t a solution. The government needs to step in.

CLEAN THREAD: The connection between Cambridge Analytica/SCL/AIQ, Oakes, Nix, Bannon, Mercer & crew and cryptocurrency. HINT: All roads lead to Russia. [My previous thread added research in real time and became confusing, so I am cleaning it up for clarity.]
2/ 2 years ago, Cambridge Analytica planned to release it's own cryptocurrency ICO. An ICO (Initial Coin Offering) is similar to corporations doing an IPO on the stock exchange. Essentially, it's a method of crowdsourcing funds, often as start up capital.
3/ An ICO allows investors to buy "tokens".
✔️These tokens are exchanged later for fiat currencies or other cryptocurrencies.
✔️An ICO allows crypto ventures to avoid regulations that come from bank funding.
✔️ICOs are rife for scams and fraud.…
