#BREAKING:#Kavanaugh registered his website domain confirmkavanaugh.com on February 8, 2017. How did he know way back then that (1) Kennedy would retire and (2)he would be the nominee? Hmm--STRANGE

#TheResistance #SupremeCourt #CNN #MSNBC #Yahoo #WednesdayThoughts #FBRParty
So lets get this straight--On the one hand we had #Kavanaugh correctly "predicting" Kennedy would retire and he would be the nominee, and on the other hand Kennedy's son giving #Trump SHADY loans while at #deutschebank yet its CRICKETS from #MSM. Hmm

Wonder what our good friend @SenatorCollins knew about this👆👆. Given her shameful "NO CORROBORATION" stunt👇👇, she was probably IN ON IT!!

We took a look at #MAGA follower trains, which appear to be a significant means by which fans of 45 network/organize.

The concept is simple: account that already has a lot of followers tweets a "train" tweet/thread consisting of a list of accounts to follow. These threads in turn receive replies from users wishing to be included in the next train.
To gather a set of #MAGA accounts that had grown their followings at least in part by participating in trains, we searched for replies containing both "MAGA" and "your train" and then harvested the accounts that posted or retweeted the train tweets being replied to.

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.

1/ My Significant Other, who has 10X more followers than I do from participating in those #FBRParty things that I strongly oppose, is engaged in an experiment: instead of posting witty obviousness and outrage (and getting thousands of likes), he is posting content.
2/ The result is interesting: he barely gets any attention from his "huge crowd of resisters" who do such great lip service to the cause of democracy but don't seem that interested in making informed decisions.
3/ They still do engage (a lot) with accounts that repeat old news in fewer words and more emotion, they enjoy strongly emotional words and expressions (they love, hate, are sick, etc) and they happily engage in follow-backs.

Do you want to spread truth, facts, and some laughs? Rumor has it you should follow @akkitwts, a self-styled resistance accounts whose 265 tweets apparently contain these things in spades, as it's managed to attract 19.3K followers in under two months.

Before we follow for the promised truth, facts, and laughs, let's take a look at @akkitwts. All tweets are sent via the Android app, and the tweet timings don't suggest automation. However. . .
As one might expect of a #resistance account, @akkitwts posts a variety of tweets opposing the Trump administration, many of which have been posted verbatim before. This dedication to plagiarism could indicate automation, but could also be copy/paste - hard to be certain.

1/ "Speak truth to stupid" (from the TV show Newsroom). There's science in that (a lot of it). Once you know the electorate demographics and break it down in categories, it's time to shape the *persuasive discourse*. (feel free to downlad)

2/ The demographic composition of your electorate is usually available on public statistics data organizations or other research institutes. You certainly know @pewresearch and @FiveThirtyEight (private).
3 / Once you go through this first step, which many people skip, it's time to understand their "attitudes and behaviors". This is within the field of study of *public opinion*, a sub-area of political science.

1 / Digital political activism: I have been slowly populating this chart with relevant twitter accounts. The reason I have been putting work on this is because the effectiveness of political action depends on two things:
docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d…
1 / First, the existence and following of authoritative sources (hierarchical structure). Second, fast viralization (anarchic or horizontal structure). At the viral level, the best number of cross-followings ranges from a few hundred to less than 2K.
2 / The immense majority of those creating viral action are NOT opinion-makers. They don't generate original content and they shouldn't: that is the prerogative of authoritative sources (qualified individuals, organizations, etc). Their role is to effectively spread content.

1 / I don't do #FBRParty and I have to mute several accounts that spend most of their time doing outrage posting, funny posting... zero content. Being "stronger together", mathematically, does NOT mean following each other but being connected through hub-accounts.
2 / Hub-accounts create and reproduce the most relevant content for *your* interests. Following political parties, important activist organizations, news outlets and serious writers is extremely relevant. Doing this means you have a chance of making a contribution.
3 / Increasing your individual number of followers if you are not a person who generates relevant content means very close to zero in political terms. I have no idea why anyone would want to have a lot of followers (unless it's business and if it is, we're talking serious numbers

#BREAKING:So let's get this straight. #Trump misled #DeutscheBank to get loans he won't otherwise qualify for, and the guy giving him the loans is Justice Kennedy's son. Hmm

#TheResistance #CNN #MSNBC #Yahoo #ThursdayThoughts #FBRParty

Did Justice Kennedy's son KNOW #Trump cooked his financials before advancing him MEGA LOANS? Only @HouseDemocrats SUBPOENA can settle that

How are Americans supposed to respect a Roberts #SupremeCourt featuring #Kavanaugh when 👇👇document PROVES that way back in Feb 2017, Kavanaugh ALREADY KNEW Kennedy was retiring and more importantly, that HE WAS his replacement?

1/ Day 30 of Trump's shutdown: Gov't workers are suffering. Trump's winning by blaming Dems for not negotiating. BuzzFeed nailed Trump for directing Cohen in illegal acts. Then Mueller made his first mistake & now both have egg on their faces. Trump wins. Enough! Resisters Unite!

1/ THREAD (Click on "Show this thread") Here is a revised Ultimate Presidential Candidates List for 10/6/18. Major changes at Tier One. Kamala Harris moves into first, followed by Cory Booker as a running mate. Joe Biden moves from first to third followed by Michael Avenatti.
2/ Bernie Sanders remains first on Tier Two, but is considered weak as a primary contender. Eric Swalwell stays at second while Deval Patrick and Adam Schiff switch places based on Schiff's high profile stance against Kavanaugh (i.e., Schiff moves up on spot).

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.
