⚠️ Nuevamente el grupo legislativo de Morena presenta una iniciativa que pone en riesgo la libertad de expresión en el #internet

La Ley General de Ciberseguridad contempla la posibilidad de neutralizar sin control judicial, sitios electrónicos y perfiles de redes sociales 🧵
El proyecto que propone expedir la Ley General de Ciberseguridad contempla en su artículo 52, la posibilidad de que policías, MP o la Guardia Nacional soliciten a las empresas proveedoras de servicios de internet que se neutralicen páginas de internet o perfiles de redes sociales
¿En que casos se puede solicitar esta “neutralización”?

Pues entre otros la ley señala que se puede solicitar cuando “(...) Dañe la imagen pública y la reputación de una persona o institución” ‼️

@ANAJURE_Oficial "O [ #pastor #evangélico ] @PastorMalafaia disse que #sanitizou os 2 800 m2 da #igreja em que atua sem pagar os 62 mil reais que seriam cobrados pelo serviço. Em troca, fez os #anúncios nas redes sociais."
@ANAJURE_Oficial @PastorMalafaia Alguns líderes #evangélicos vêm se empenhando para abrir igrejas desde o começo da #pandemia, contrariando as recomendações sanitárias. Em maio do ano passado, @thais_bilenky contou como #pastores fizeram pressão para cobrar o #dízimo em plena quarentena.👆🏾

Sehr geehrter Herr #Bundesinnenminister #Seehofer,

hiermit kann ich an Sie nur appellieren, die #Ausweispflicht für die sog. #Messenger hier im #Internet NICHT einzuführen, da so etwas tats. unbrauchbar wäre, weil die wahren Täter so etwas einfach umgehen würden.

cc @BMI_Bund
Zudem werden die meisten #Nutzer der Messenger-#Dienste mir da zustimmen können.

Ich hoffe, dass Sie dadurch Ihre Meinung zu dem Thema überdenken können, denn wenn diese Gesetzesänderung umgesetzt werden würde, wäre es ein weiterer "Schlag ins Gesicht" für das Internet.


Wenn Sie eine weitere Überzeugung benötigen, würde ich Sie bitten, sich dieses Video des IT-Rechtsanwalt #Solmecke unter dem folgenden Link auf der Plattform #YouTube anzusehen:

Mit freundlichem Gruß

1/14 “SocialPay will melt faces” - @ColinMiles

He’s definitely not wrong, #Zilliqa is changing the #SocialEconomy and disrupting marketing ⚡️

#SocialPay “2.0” MVP with #NFTs has arrived ➡️ SocialPay.App

What’s exciting about it? 👇
2/14 The cornerstone of marketing in this digital age is engagement.

Brands want engagement to spur organic consumer growth, consumers need incentives to actively partake in brand advocacy.

SocialPay bridges this disconnect between businesses and consumers.
3/14 How does SocialPay.App work?

Businesses marketing their products want REAL engagement to create a network effect.

This effect is amplified when consumers share their organic sentiments about the products within their social circle.

#internetshutdown cannot be used as a tool to suppress dissent. This is a violation of the right to freedom of speech & expression as well as the right to life.

What's Happened In #Rakhine since the #MyanmarCoup?
[Thread 1/7]

From our sources @RestlessBeings we understand that a major PR drive by the military has taken place in #Rakhine state today, particularly targeted at the #Rohingya population

What's Happened In #Rakhine since the #MyanmarCoup?
[Thread 2/7]

In #Sittwe #Akyab in the #IDP camp of #AungMinglar the Regional Military Commander (believed to be Mying Aung Lwin) visited #Rohingya community leaders for about 45 minutes.

[Thread 3/7]
He went on to explain the 3 main reasons why the #Tatmadaw has taken control:
1. 1 million voters in #Rakhine left off voter lists
2. #NLD violated #Covid19 rules
3. #NLD didn't respond to #military demands of voter lists

I've queried the @WhiteHouse for any early reaction.
"Almost all state and divisional chief ministers and some members of the ruling National League for Democracy have been abducted by the military," reports @Voaburmese.

Phone lines are not available in many places, including the capital, Nay Pyi Taw.…

Last weekend, I made a threat on the ongoing #SocialMedia shutdown in Uganda and some implications on the future of #internet & Uganda's #digital agenda.

The thread attracted a lot of engagement and questions. Tonight, I will share some final thoughts on the subject. (1)
Conceptually, social media sites are the largest on-boarding platforms for internet users in Uganda. Notably, Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram & Snapchat attract the highest internet traffic- which drives demand for other platform services e.g Google and Zoom recently.
So- when we talk about an "open internet", we mean the FULL resources of the internet. Any encumberance on selected applications has ripple effects across the entire network thus jeorpadizing standardization of internet/data transmission which is essential for innovation & growth

#Global #ETF Weekly & Month-end (thread): 29 Jan 2021

- 2020 worst perf #sector making comeback in 2021 $IXC

- This is helping #oil producing countries with #Nigeria & #UAE in top5 #Country ETF YTD performers in USD $NGE $UAE

- #SouthAfrica $EZA moved into top15 YTD performers

#EmergingMarkets #ETF still storming ahead against #DevelopedMarkets ETF, still not relatively "overbought" yet, but getting close.

#SouthAfrica might need a lot of catch up, but $EZA YTD performance in USD (+0.2%) continued 2nd half on 2020 recovery against $URTH (-0.8%)

#Global #Value #stocks still making short-term recovery, with $IWVL #ETF still looking strong relatively over the short-term. Over 3yr period it is however still lagging quite substantially.

#VoicesFromHaryana #LetTheNetWork
#Haryana Government in its order stated that #Internet along with SMS services are being suspended to control fake rumours and disinformation during the ongoing #farmersagitation. The internet however is much more than social media.
The Internet has become a means of livelihood for people especially during the pandemic where the majority of citizens are still working and studying from home. Internet is used to verify information as well.
#pandemic #letthenetwork #keepiton #farmersrprotest
Internet shutdown cannot be used as a tool to suppress dissent. This is a violation of the right to freedom of speech and expression as well as the right to life. The impact of such shutdowns on citizens and the economy is huge.

#Iran #Teheran #Court #Internet

Iran's telecommunications minister and the youngest member of the cabinet of President Hassan Rouhani, Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi, was summoned on Wednesday by the country's attorney general and released on bail.
In a statement, Jamal Hadian, a spokesman for the Ministry of Information and Communications Technology, said the minister appeared before a prosecutor at the Culture and Media Court in Tehran and was released after being questioned.
Jahromi faces an indictment, according to sources, over the failure of the ministry to comply with an order issued by the Supreme Council of Cyberspace of Iran to filter Instagram, block virtual private networks (VPNs) and facilitate locally established messengers.

Internet Shutdowns cost India $2.8 BN, making #India the most economically-impacted nation from Internet shutdowns in 2020. @top10vpn
#LetTheNetWork #keepItOn #internetshutdown #JammuAndKashmir…
As #DigitalIndia is becoming a reality, it is important to understand that maximum efforts have to be made to make internet free, accessible, and inclusive to all.
Students have lost many hours of their education, people have lost their livelihoods, the media has been severely crippled, the economy has suffered immensely & businesses have collapsed in the absence of a stable internet connection. #LetTheNetWork #KeepItOn

Lots of people are sleeping on one the biggest things @quant_network is currently involved in-ODAP (Open Digital Asset Protocol).

So what is exactly #ODAP and why this makes $QNT one of the most significant and, regarding #crypto mcap, undervalued projects?

Time for a THREAD⬇️
1/ODAP is the protocol for communication between gateways, primarily with an enterprise focus.
So banks, central banks etc. would run a gateway in Overledger Network and ODAP would be the protocol for gateways to communicate with each other in a secure and trustless manner. $QNT
2/ #ODAP Interfaces are the open source connectors that will connect a gateway to #blockchains and any existing network / API. That is based on the standards from work done at ISO TC 307 which 57 countries are working towards.
$QNT CEO Gilbert Verdian is the founder of TC307.
