After the #MetPolice tried & failed to frame me & after ex #MetPoliceUK turned private investigators @Surelock_ tried & failed to frame me & my mum, attempt number 3 was #EE & #UKMail. I had never used @EE but they made me their customer

#SwitchtoO2 #o2 #Vodafone #Three #LBC
#EE said I had ordered mobile phones & sim cards & #UKMail said they had delivered them to me (with me showing my passport) at home. I did neither. I didn't order any mobiles & I didn't receive any mobiles. It was a complete stitch up

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.

Published AUG 2016 after #Bernie flipped and slammed Hillary … @ericgarland THREAD what we (#ProDemocracy) had been watching. America doesn’t just have a problem with #Fascist#Trumpies on Right THEY have problem at other side of political Horseshoe too tinyurl.com/y9yznpqt
2019 Update.. SO America believed about the #Trump #Fascist #RightWingers .. enough to elect a DEM house (finally after 8 yrs) and they have gone to work for #WeThePeople as @RepCummings showed the country yesterday. At their THIRD Hearing. First was Report CHILD MURDER by TRUMP
NOW it’s up to us to expose the #AltLEFT or as we #ProDemocracy centrists call it. Just the other face of the PUTIN puppet show. Remember how #Bernie has ‘always’ been nonaligned? Then said he was DEM in 2018. Don’t believe it. He is PUTINS #FallbackGuy ASK @20committee for def

Prime example of why you shouldn’t just “#followback.”

Discovered I was following this little #MAGAt. They “protect” their accounts now.

From now on, I’ll be blocking protected accounts that I don’t recognize.

Here’s some other things to watch out for. (thread)
#RussianBots
I noticed a lot of accounts following, and unfollowing me—hoping for a “#followback.”

They all had high numbers of “followers and following.”

But here’s the thing—

They have very low comments, likes, and retweets.

Why?

I’ll explain...
The reason the Russians invade, or create #FBRparty posts—is because they want disruption.

I’ve had a number of people say they haven’t seen my posts in a while.

I haven’t stopped posting.

It’s that they’re following 15k people, and that high of a number buries “real posts.”

# Exploring Tweetbonds

Continuing speculations on building an informal economy of sorts using standard Twitter functions only.

See the below for the initial draft, though Ive evolved the idea since then
If someone deletes a Reply to you, there is no record that such a Reply ever existed(*). One could of course make a screenshot (aka screencap) but screenshots can be faked to say whatever you want.

(*) Actually, twitter may retain the Reply, I dunno.
Quote Tweets (QTs) are a different matter. A nested set of QTs, entered in reverse order & punctuated in specific ways, can be made 'secure' in the sense that

1) You can't add to the initial tweet, and
2) You can't add to the final tweet w/o some break in a punctuation protocol.

Allez, c'est cadeau, un dernier thread pour la route sur l'#informationwarfare à base de multiples comptes et de théories conspi très débiles.

Vous avez certainement vu passer ce montage très con sur l'affaire #Benalla?

Intéressons-nous à son auteur.
Notre ami #VanGogh n'aime pas #Macron, a l'air d'avoir un faible pour les théories conspirationnistes et l'#UPR. Jusqu'à là, rien de bien anormal vous me direz.
Bon, il a quand même un compte qui se termine à 8 chiffres, qui est la marque des fermes à trolls, notamment #russes. On va aller jeter un coup d'oeil à ses followers.

The Democrats have established their platform and they are working it. It may not seem like much but we all know hate is a powerful motivator. So we cannot become complacent. We must get down to business and ready for midterms. “What do we need to do you say?” Glad you asked. 1
2 Ready your #2018Election network by adding #MAGA voters. Mad Dog has this wonderful #TrumpTrain already up and running. Keep retweeting (RT) it weekly. Check under the RTs and follow those folks. #Followback (FB) people who have followed you.
3 Don’t get hung up if someone hasn’t followed you back. It could be they have simply missed you (speaking from experience). They could be stuck at the twitter bottleneck. There are a number of innocent reasons. Your time is more valuable. #2018Elections

Exclusive: Watch the birth of a bot!!

Step 1: Create an account - notice @scootersaunders & @kelliebitter - Kell was born last month, but Scooter was born today, happy birthday!
Step 2:

Find a friend -

It's hard to make friends when you're 1 day old, so you call @RyanAFournier - who will follow you. Then Ryan's friend Kellie comes to play too. Notice it says 4 followers - but only shows 2 because 'you won't see suspected spam..'
Step 3: #followback

The bot to bot interaction is highly understated. Bots have bot friends - bots love to communicate with each other - RT/Fav etc

The next step is to follow the people you just met - so you follow ryan back

Notice Kellz and Scooter both follow each other
