On Twitter, Creativity and Tying Up Loose Ends
Today’s my last day on twitter

I discuss why with @SteafanFox in this podcast

But there’s a few more things to say

@SteafanFox My decision has been informed largely by Cal Newport’s excellent book Deep Work

Deep creative work and social media do not seem to go together.

At least for me.

Great for business leads, but not so much for creating art

1. I amplify a lot of fundraising requests. I know this may annoy some of my followers, but I want to take a moment to talk about why I do this. I considered snarking the screenshot posted below with a "Men On the Internet" tweet, but I think I should do this in a serious way.
2. I'm an advocate for the #Exvangelical community, which consists of people who have escaped fundamentalist/evangelical Christianity, an authoritarian and damaging form of Protestantism that upholds white supremacist patriarchy:…

3. We exvies were mostly indoctrinated as children, and many of us are still relatively young and not yet economically established. Or at least the latter. If you haven't lived abusive, authoritarian religion, you don't know how hard it is to leave:…

I've been tagged in quite a few #FF today, and as it's the last Follow Friday of the year, I wanted to take a sec to chat about social media as it relates to #infosec and #threatintel.

Kind of like a year in review.
Social media has been a hot topic this year. It's literally made it into the halls of Congress. But I'm not going to talk about how Jack and Zuckerberg are selling our souls away at our own consent, or about how they're knowingly assisting in foreign information operations.
Let's chat about potential.

Social media has a massive potential for change. You don't have to look much further than the Arab Spring to know that. For our industry, it has a massive potential for great, or awful, change.

Friends, it has been a whole year and now it is time for me to re-read #PrairieFires.
You can find my old tweets compiled here, if you somehow missed the first read.…

I get to head out on vacation in a couple of hours. normally I'd do a farewell #FF, but not this time.

I'm too disappointed.

Mini Thread.
I am not a military man, I never was. Yet, I felt a great depression set in when I saw Mattis resign. I have a great respect for him, I started to think about why, why it depressed me, and realized it spreads to much more than this moment in time in my life.
There is a dearth of leadership everywhere. We refuse to listen to anyone outside of our point of view. Adversaries become enemies far too easily. Those who should know better, willfully blind themselves to embrace the passion of their vitriol.

1. On a related note, the #Exvangelical community absolutely won the battle for public visibility when it comes to yesterday's #GC2Summit at Wheaton College, a PR stunt through which evangelicals hoped to retain control of the narrative regarding abuse. #ChurchToo #EmptyThePews
2. Just look at all the coverage that has quoted @emilyjoypoetry and/or @juleswoodson11 and included the #Exvangelical criticism of Ed Stetzer's event, where evangelicals strove to be appear to be taking abuse seriously while holding onto abusive patriarchal, anti-queer theology.
3. Here are several examples, and my understanding is that more coverage favorable to the #Exvangelical take on the #GC2Summit is on the way. Stetzer, Moore, Lucado and company have failed to control the story. This is huge.……

A #FF thanks to religion reporters, commentators, editors who have included #Exvangelical voices in discussions of evangelicalism:

@ninaburleigh @sarahposner @PaulHRosenberg @rklein90 @emmillerwrites @kbeccaandrews @JulieZauzmer @evanderkacz @JosiahMHesse @fenix_rising
Also thank you and #FF @lizkineke @NotoriousTIB @SarahBurris. I'm sure there are more I'm missing off the top of my head. I'm grateful the #Exvangelical community is finally getting the hearing we deserve; that we are being treated as stakeholders on the topic of evangelicalism.
I must also thank @jeffjarvis for his consistent Twitter advocacy for our community and his insistence that #Exvangelical perspectives should have a seat at the table when it comes to the public sphere and religion journalism. Thank you so much, Jeff! #FF #EmptyThePews

Right then, at an earlier time than usual, herewith this week's Brexit Probability Tracker update. For new readers, prefaced with a warning that this is not scientific, and as a time series some headings have become rather intertwined...
Headlines are the PM's deal is down to 40% (for data continuity reasons split between two columns), no-deal back up to 20%, and remain without a referendum re-enters as a 5% possibility, because if we get to March without agreement who knows?
The recent trend is clear, in the last few weeks the PM's deal has fallen from 60% probability to 40%, with rising chances of a referendum or no-deal. And any kind of certainty for business and individuals seems some way away.

Tips to becoming a successful crypto influencer:

Pick a cartoon. Add crypto, BTC or XBT to its name for your username. Photoshop something crypto related into a screencap for your avi.
Sign up for a free tradingview account. Make sure to immediately change all the default colors.

Post charts with a minimum of 3 possible scenarios without explaining the trading plan for any of them. Do this regularly, always cashtag them and encourage RT's.
Spam tag bigger accounts at least twice a week. Once on #ff and once on one of your charts. Ask for their thoughts, secretly take notes so next week you can sound smarter.

I met so many amazing women in the quality field at @AgileTD! 👩🏾‍💻👩🏻‍💻👩🏼‍💻 Here's some Twitters you should all follow (an #AgileTD meets #FF-even-though-it's-not-a-Friday thread):
Let's start with @cswesepieces, who has the craziest stories about conservative Ohio colliding with very Indian India and about living on the Polish/Mexican border in Chicago. She instantly made me feel welcome at speakers' dinner! 🥰 #AgileTD #womenintech
There's the awesome @FaizaYousuf, who gave a keynote on the serious topic of cross-cultural Agile transformations going not-so-smooth, but kept us laughing (and learning) throughout. 🤩 Super smart, super balanced, an Agile superhero & skilled listener! #AgileTD #womenintech

In response to controversy over Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro campaigning with Trump, Fox claimed that it “does not condone any talent participating in campaign events."

But Hannity campaigned with Ron DeSantis and Matt Gaetz earlier this year.…
Pirro, Lou Dobbs, Greg Gutfeld, Pete Hegseth, and Sebastian Gorka all headlined fundraisers for Republican candidates and groups this cycle.

#ff @ehananoki who reported on those DeSantis and Gaetz events when they were promoted in June.

After his report went live, Gaetz's campaign pulled a Facebook promotional video that included video of Hannity praising Gaetz on Fox.…

I got a story to tell about these black nikes and they involve my dear friend @thecoachchris_

The internet is a powerful tool when used wisely.
About a year ago,

I had a pair of busted running shoes 😂😂😂

I’m gonna see if I can find the tweet that had em because woof those shoes were fucked up.

But I kept working out in em.

I was unemployed as most of you know so Buying new workout shoes wasn’t a priority.
Found it 😂😂😂

And I wasn’t doing it for charity, I just didn’t realize how much I needed new ones because there was so much other stuff going on.
