Back in May we posted this thread about @akkitwts, a hypothetical #resistance account that would be better described as a tweet plagiarist. At that time, it had 19K followers and followed 13K, at least some of which was accomplished via #FBR.

@akkitwts @ZellaQuixote The situation has evolved. @akkitwts has managed to farm over 50K followers, and as recently as Sept 8th was following 17K back. Sometime prior to Sept 23rd, @akkitwts unfollowed every account except for @akkifollow, likely a sock. So much for #FBR.
@akkitwts @ZellaQuixote @AkkiFollow Not long after that, @akkitwts followed a second account: @eliterenno. Even given that this account has 100K followers, some of its tweets have gone insanely viral.

Using hashtags and trending words - How not to make a hash of it on twitter - a thread.

Sadly I see too many people saying that they don't see the point of #hashtag ging - or that it is silly - or doesn't help....

So bear with me here...

This couldn't be further from the truth, using tags well, in any situation on twitter, helps you reach further and link up with other people

We're nearly 20 years into the new millennium and instead of enjoying flying cars and self-cleaning kitchens, we're all hostages to a bunch of racist pedophiles who are kidnapping children and locking up American citizens based on their ancestry.
Have you learned about Putin's oligarchs? This is very important.

Thread.


💭 For info about Putin's oligarchs & the Russian mafia, watch Active Measures, read @craigunger, listen to @gaslitnation, search the internet.
Why is Pelosi trying to prevent Trump from being impeached? Why aren't we seeing "public hearings for public men?"

@Kris_Sacrebleu We should expect a ‘rhyming’ of our mid-19th century era surrounding our Civil War.
The #GOP (POTrump-#Republicans) shall end, leaving a blessed ‘conservative power drought’ lasting about as long as the Lincoln-to-Arthur 24-yr. GOP dominant era; we’ve no time for conservatism.
👇🏼
@Kris_Sacrebleu 👉🏼There will be far too much to prosecute, legislate for, and plan if we are to last another century.
Do NOT expect assassinations. Do expect continued domestic terror and prodding from, . . . wait for it . . . —RUSSIA.
The thing yoking America today, 👇🏼
@Kris_Sacrebleu 👉🏼 as much as slavery once did, is the scourge of #PartyPolitics which bred corporate control via sponsorship; #Democrats thankfully do acknowledge this, so look for the Dems to do the one thing they do best: self-dismantle their own power through #ElectionReform, 👇🏼

Meet @IanRoberts9 and @JoanneB37379026, two curiously similar Twitter accounts that are in all likelihood retweet bots implemented by automating the Twitter website. (Amusingly, @IanRoberts9 was restricted by Twitter while we were looking at these accounts.)

cc: @ZellaQuixote
By examining other accounts that retweeted the same tweets as the two bots, we found 16 matching the pattern (web browser + 24/7 activity.) The newest batch (from 5/11) all have the same hashtags (#PresidentPelosi, #PelosiPower, #TeamPelosi, and #StillWithHer) on their profiles.
To the total surprise of probably no one anywhere, these accounts use stolen profile pictures easily found via reverse image search.

#FBR اگر واقعی ٹیکس نیٹ بڑھانا چاھتی ہے اور اگر حلومتِ وقت واقعی ملک کی خاطر ٹیکس کلیکشن میں اضافہ چاھتی ہے تو بینک میں موجود پیسوں کی انفارمیشن لینے کی بیوقوفی کو چھوڑ دے کیونکہ اس سے کچھ حاصل نہیں ہوگا الٹا لوگ بینکوں میں پیسہ رکھنا مزید کم کر دینگے۔

Earlier this afternoon, I suddenly received a bunch of notifications within the space of a few minutes that tweets I'd posted or been tagged in had been retweeted by accounts with very few (recent) tweets. . ..

cc: @ZellaQuixote
We identified a total of fourteen accounts. All of them were created between 2008 and 2011, and all have been dormant for at least six years prior to today (some have no previous tweets.) They also have self-similar biographies: #FBR, #Resist, and #LGBTQ hashtags are a theme.
All of the recent tweets are retweets, with @RVAwonk the most frequently retweeted user. The topics of the retweeted tweets vary, although they all appear to be recent. We can't be sure of the goal of this group of accounts at this point, but the activity appears coordinated.

The End of History

Anyone who has spent time on the internet over the past few years will have noticed the sharp rise in vitriolic "centrism" in the discourse, a significant deviation from the left/right, liberal/conservative paradigm of the past several decades.

We decided to take a look at the present state of #FBR for signs of automation. To this end, we downloaded tweets containing #FBR, yielding 73783 tweets from 20678 accounts over the last 10 days, and checked for use of automation services and custom apps.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
Of these 73783 tweets, 3427 (4.6%) were posted using automation services or custom apps by 217 accounts. All of this traffic is automated, but these accounts aren't necessarily all bots; some are likely human-operated with occasion tweets from apps they've enabled.
Checking that set of 217 accounts for round-the-clock tweeting/90%+ of tweets being posted via apps/automation services yields 117 bots, responsible for 2555 tweets. The bots on average have 19 #FBR tweets in their most recent 3200 tweets, compared to 3.5 for the other accounts.

On Tuesday, more than 500 people took time from their day to send me attack tweets.

I have only highlighted a dozen or so, but I've done this so you'll understand what I deal with daily as a woman journalist doing fact-based reporting in the #EnemyOfThePeople era.

It's tough,
When I look at the TLs of some of my friends on here, among them @emrazz & @Bravewriting, & see the number of attack tweets--and the implied violence--I wonder where @Twitter is on this.
Two accounts that threatened me with violence on Tuesday were suspended. 73 others were not.
I saw a tweet to @emrazz--since deleted--by a guy who told her the story of @YouNetflix in which a series of women are murdered. It was a clear threat.

Where is the #Resistance on this? When are all those #FBR accounts going to step in and help us fight these threats?

Meet @Trumper1620. This account, created in October 2018 as a hypothetical "resistance" account recently announced that they'd apparently been faking it and been a Trump supporter all along. Let's take a look at this sudden transformation.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
The newly reborn @Trumper1620 posts a variety of content including racism, relatively boring mockery of liberals, and false statistics about terrorist attacks. The account looks organic and likely human-operated.
It seems unlikely that the account would have been named @Trumper1620 when acting as a hypothetical resistance account. By looking up @Trumper1620's permanent unique account ID and searching Google for it, we find that @ProudDemResists was its previous name.

The @GOP says "The Democrats don't abide by laws."

Let's look at the scoreboard, folks!

Criminal charges per administration since 1970:

TRUMP: +100 (so far)
OBAMA: 0
GWB: 16
CLINTON: 2
GHWB: 1
REAGAN: 26
CARTER: 1
FORD: 1
NIXON: 76

If you're counting:

R's: 220
D's: 3

🤷
Someone pointed out that David Petraeus should count against Obama. Ok. Petraeus had one criminal charge.

Also, the exact number of criminal charges for the Trump administration is 191.

So add 1 to Democrats.

...Then add 91 to Republicans.

R: 311
D: 4

0.0.0 I'm starting a thread to explain some Twitter things.🙂
1.0.1 Shadow Banning.

Shadow Banning is a method for administrators to quiet down communities.
It's like giving you a time-out, except that they don't tell you you're in time-out.
They just limit your exposure.
1.0.2 Twitter Shadow Banning.

Twitter uses this too. Usually when they find there has been suspicious activity in your account. Or if you've been interacting with others in a disruptive manner.
Or if you were in a fight.

Sometimes when you add or remove too many people.

You are something else - yes, you, the one reading this tweet. You don't even know what you're doing, or the significance of it, but take a moment, read this thread, and pat yourself on the back.
(1 of 8)
YOU have risen up to #resist. Without any centralized or organizational foundation, you helped grow a massive online movement. Through #FBRParty #FBR and other hashtag advocacy, you did this.
(2 of 8)
YOU have created an international coalition, bringing together a diverse group of people who are raising up to demand change, not just here in America but across the world. You have inspired people to speak up.

thanks to @AshaRangappa_ for pointing out these foreign IFTTT bots:
55 of them.
All created at the same time.
Bios have some version of these hashtags:
#NotMyPresident #TheResistance #FuckTrump #FBR #TRE45ON #TreasonousTrump

twitter list here: twitter.com/josh_emerson/l…
here you can see they all share similar stats.
and have their twitter UI set to "id" or Ino6jt3EYAu5
They are "trying" to use IFTTT to retweet specific accounts, but they didn't set it up c555qwlswtl

This thread is to arm fellow European British with essential info about our POSSIBLE future relationship with the WTO and what it would mean for the UK in a no deal situation. Use it to rebut Brexiteer disengenuity and nonsense on the matter - facts matter. /1
#FBPE #WATON #FBR
WTO RULES state that you can’t treat other nations more favourably in trade deals. So, the EU be in breach of their own international Treaties to accept the Chequers Accord. This is highly unlikely; they’d have to make these same allowances for more than 50 other countries. /2
Central to WTO rules is, to trade favourably, then a country must have a hard border to control good entering & leaving the country (as ratified by all 164 WTO members). S.10 of the EUWA18 makes this impossible: the UK can’t create a hard border in Ireland (protecting the GFA)./3

[Ref illegality & corruption THREAD 👇👇]

Been asked to summarise the Susan Wilson (@Suewilson91) v Prime Minister case. This thread gives the basics of the pleadings and relief sought. /1

#UKEUChallenge

#VoteLeaveBrokeTheLaw #FBPE #WATON #FBR @abcpoppins #StopBrexit
There is a principal issue underlying the case that poses a simple question: is a lawful, free and fair vote one of the constitutional requirements of the UK? It's asked after 2 Electoral Commission (EC) Reports found that illegality & corruption dogged the ref campaign. /2
Let me make this clear. The EC findings were to the criminal standard of proof (beyond reasonable doubt) & serious offences were committed by the designated campaign for leaving the EU (& others), in breach of the statutory framework established by Parliament for the ref. /3

You fucking Congress people say you can't live on $174,000 plus stipend, but expect us to live on $7.25/hr?!?!?! You can fuck right off. You should get minimum wage.
I'm actually surprised by how much attention this tweet is getting, considering the fact it's littered with the f-Bomb.

2. A fundamental principle of the common law is that votes can be declared void for substantial irregularity. If irregularity affects the result of an election it is by itself enough to compel the tribunal to declare the election void.
3. The result doesn't need to be affected. Only a ‘substantial departure’ from the rules, or the election being ‘conducted so badly that it was not substantially in accordance with the law’ is needed to void the ballot.
