Good luck #TheGreatHack. 🤞
Here’s the great @PeterBradshaw1 with his #BAFTAs predictions. He thinks #TheGreatHack *should* win. I suspect it will be worthy winner #ForSama but we’ll see...…
Look who I found in the Royal Albert Hall! Only the recently deposed @DamianCollins who got shafted off the DCMS committee. ‘It was that fucker Dominic Cummings, wasn’t it?’ I said. He neither confirmed or denied...

A timely paper from Harvard looking at how (dis)information is enhanced by cross platforming between eg between Twitter and You Tube.

Especially relevant as a response to C4 #ForSama documentary yesterday was immediately critical of White Hats despite not watching the video.
This paper analysis how anti-White Hat messaging was amplified through fake and paid for accounts, and driven my RT and Sputnik stories. It is enough if it creates doubt.

From that single response yesterday, they succeeded

Of course, this isn’t limited to White Hat stories.
I have been reminded that the correct term is White Helmets!

Few thoughts on movies I really liked at @MumbaiFilmFest this year:
Has to be the most powerful film of the year! Think of films like La Haine, Do The Right Thing and Training Day. A tense cop thriller set in Paris Suburbia with an explosive last act that you aren't prepared for. A solid debut from Ladj Ly!
The only thing I read about the film before watching was that it's a Brazilian western and someone said it's Brazil's version of Lagaan. I can say that's true with this film that plays out like a Kurosawa/John Carpenter mash up and it's damn entertaining!
