There are over a dozen forms of public sector corruption recorded & monitored globally, yet only few of them seem to be talked about.

Corruption isn't just a far-off concept—it's a reality that affects us all.

In this thread, I'll explore the most common forms 1/11. #Corruption Image
💰💼 Corruption can be financial or non-financial, direct or indirect.

Financial corruption involves the misuse of public power for private gain, often involving money.

Non-financial corruption doesn't always involve money but can still have severe impacts. 2/11 #Types
Examples of financial corruption include bribery, embezzlement, fraud, & extortion.

Non-financial corruption can take the form of favoritism, cronyism, patronage, nepotism & abuse of state organs.

Mistakenly, ppl think this is the worst type due to the financial loss. 3/11

The #Taliban's supreme leader in a meeting with the heads of human resources of the ministries and independent directorates, instructed them to avoid "#nepotism" in all appointments and dismissal of the IEA employees.
The spokesman of TB's ministry of higher education tweeted ...
...the narrated directives of Amir-ul-Mominin, in 4 clips.
TB's leader called on the IEA officials to enforce Sharia, reasoning that the goal of Jihad was #implementation_of_Sharia, not coming to power.
"If you do not rule by Sharia, then your struggle was for power, not Jihad."
Hebatullah Akhundzada to the TB:
"Fully familiarize Afghans with Islam, then they will support you so strongly that you will rule the Islamic system over the entire world. When all Afghans get ready for making sacrifices for Islam, then you should go where you are ordered to go."

Un scandale qui allie l'incongru à l'hilarant agite le Twitter de la recherche médiévale : une sombre histoire de plagiat d'un institut qui peut-être... n'existe pas ?
C'est le #ReceptioGate et ça devient assez mythique pour que je vous en parle :D
Tout commence avec ce blog :…
Peter Kidd, spécialiste des manuscrits médiévaux, tient un blog sur des reconstitutions numériques de manuscrits découpés par leurs propriétaires. Il s'avise que son blog a été... source d'inspiration, allons-nous dire.
Une professeure*, Carla Rossi, de l'Institut RECEPTIO basé à Lugano, a publié une reconstitution numérique d'un manuscrit traité sur le blog de Kidd. Des passages sont étrangement proches de ses textes. Et aucune marque de citation, aucune mention de son nom !
* c'est important.

🚨 ALERT! Someone wrote a very competent piece of analysis and did not unpack a VERY PARTICULAR NUANCE that I find interesting...ON THE INTERNET! Get in losers, we're doing Latin - a 🧵
Okay! So in this piece, @noUpside - technical research manager at Stanford Internet Observatory, and who investigates how narratives disperse across Al Gore's Internet - writes about how the structure of the internet lends itself to propaganda, yes, but also to something else 1/*
She says, yes, there's propaganda and there's also the noise and misinformation and general agita that all of us spread all the time, amplifying various dumb things - what if we called that "ampliganda"? 2/*

Now that the country is trying to return to “normal”, expect the #Racism & #Retaliation to re-emerge. Some of the same people, even in our industry, who were involved in the #favoritism #nepotism #cronyism gossip and whisper campaigns -that comprise the foundation of racism…
Are returning to their old habits. Let’s not forget that some of these same people cried, protested, complained and railed against #SystemicRacism, simply because they had to, to avoid being exposed and branded as what and who they are. They key is to recognize and call them out
just as we did before #GeorgeFloyd was killed. I’m grateful for the allies of all races who’ve stuck their necks out literally to support racial justice in the last year. Without them, like it or not as @RobinGivhan suggested, it took those voices to bring the kind of pressure

The Conservatives have created massive levels of public sector debt…:
in what historian Gaetano Salvemini argued in 1936, is as aspect of fascism, which makes taxpayers responsible to private enterprise,
2/ because "the State pays for the blunders of private enterprise... Profit is private and individual. Loss is public and social."

Quite apart from the obvious apparent corrupt incompetence in C4’s exposé, the UK government failed to publish details of £4bn Covid contracts
3/ with private firms... Good Law Project and MPs call for independent inquiry over apparent breach of UK law. Kate Bingham reports directly to the PM. She’s the wife of a Tory Minister, who went to school with Rachel Johnson. The public needs to know why she’s

Some fcukin bastards do not deserve ANY mercy. They take our money, our taxes and build bungalows for themselves, YES I am looking at your #Matoshri. They travel in range rovers (hi AU) while ppl in #Mumbai get crushed in trains. They drink in 5 star bars while bridges ..
fall on their damn heads. They pollute #Mumbai with hard drugs (not talking about weed) but #meth, #cocaine, #LSD, #MDMA and ruin our youth through it. They can bring in ‘maal’ from #Malaysia, #Nepal, #Afghanistan but cannot feed the poor on the streets in the city. They run..
over homeless ppl sleeping on streets and then make bakchod movies & shows like #Tubelight & #BiggBoss14 and we are expected to pay to watch that shit. They pay #ViralBhayani & #ManavManglani etc to take photos of #Diwali parties with their wives but don’t tell you about how ..

1 tweet mildly critical of #KanganaRanaut = 40+ hours of communal trolling, misogyny, abuse, lies. If you still think this is about #SushantSinghRajput or #nepotism, if you do not see that hers is a self-serving battle backed by the IT Cell & unrelated to Sushant, you are naive. Image
Tell me, #SushantSinghRajput's genuine fans, is it your belief that Sushant - who took a stand on Hindutva-Rajput extremism - would have approved of this? 👇🏾 What explains such tweets being sent by those who claim to be fighting in his name? #nepotism #outsiders #KanganaRanawat ImageImageImage
"Patti" is "bitch"/"dog" in Malayalam. "Patticad" is a play on my surname. This troll is basically calling me "The Vetticad Bitch". A writer friend says there are other obnoxious interpretations too for the coinage. & to think these trolls claim to care about #SushantSinghRajput Image

1/n #Nepotism A word associated with Politics & Bollywood. There are organisations where it runs deeper. It’s blasphemy if you talk. Politics & Bollywood identify nepotism with own generations. We have orgs where strange connections make a family. Nepotism is like ambient noise.
2/n #Nepotism Everybody knows nepotism in Think Tanks, Boards of Corporations, NGOs, Academia, Media, Charity Org & how they influence tax, safety, reg, health, edu policies. This is not the nepotism I talk of. This is juvenile. It’s just Money. I really don’t care. There is more
3/n #Nepotism in Government, Bureaucracy, Military and ANY organisation that deals with country, national security, national interests etc. is far more dangerous that commercially motivated nepotism like in Bollywood, Politics etc. This dangerous #Nepotism is not to be spoken.

GREAT statement, @BucksDems!
Joan Cullen needs to resign for her #Racist statements.

And @BucksGOP should be ASHAMED for defending Cullen, while calling out @MeehanCampaign's for similar offenses earlier this year.

They clearly value political expediency over #racialjustice.
It appears the @BucksGOP was only ready to call out #racism when it meant they were protecting favored son (or in this case favored brother and #nepotism beneficiary) @RepBrianFitz of #PA01 from a more contentious primary challenge.
And now that they are faced with another #racism issue, @BucksGOP is ready to circle the wagons for another #nepotism beneficiary.

Joan Cullen, who defended people in blackface and rejects the concept of systematic racism, is related to @BucksGOP vice chair Joseph Cullen.

Today Many Celebrities wished their Father a Happy Fathers' Day and they were severely 'abused' by Fans with lessons on Nepotism. This is so wrong!

@sonamakapoor @SonuSood @karanjohar @aliaa08 @AnilKapoor @AnupamPKher

#FathersDay #nepotism #wrongthinking #celebrities #stop
Nepotism may be prevalent in every Industry but presumptively, it might work less in Bollywood because even if you may secure a film, do you think that the audiences are fools?
#FathersDay #nepotism #wrongthinking #celebrities
You have watched her movies because you thought Alia Bhatt is cute. You have watched her next movie because you thought Sonakshi did a good acting in her previous movie.

सुशांत सिंह राजपूत च्या आत्महत्या नंतर सर्व त्याचा चाहता वर्ग शोकाकुल झाला ,सहाजिक प्रत्येक जण आपले दुःख व्यक करू लागला..
त्यानंतर एक एक वेगळा शब्द सर्वांच्या कानावर ऐकू येऊ लागला #NepotismBollywood मग लोक बोलू लागले की सुशांत चा मृत्यू ह्याच कारणाने झाला..
त्याचा मृत्यू कोणत्या कारणाने झाला हे पोलीस यंत्रणा शोधून काढतील .पण हे जे nepotism आहे ते फक्त एक #Bollywood क्षेत्रात मर्यादित आहे का....?
प्रत्येक सहकार क्षेत्रापासून औद्योगिक क्षेत्रात पण ह्याचाच वापर होतो....
राजकारण मध्ये तर न बोलण्यासारखे आहे.....
मग आता ह्या nepotism बद्दल करायचं काय...?
आपल्या ताकदीचा वापर करून एखाद्या ला नोकरी लावणे व काढणे पण ह्यातच सामावलेलं आहे...
मराठीत म्हटलं तर पक्षपात, वशिलेबाजी...

#Nepotism சுஷாந்த் சிங் இறந்ததுல இருந்து நம்ம அதிகம் கேள்விப்படுற வார்த்தை. அது பாலிவுட்டில மட்டும் தான் இருக்கா? , நம்ம தமிழ் சினிமாவிலுமா?. முதல்ல Nepotism னா என்ன? - அதைப் பற்றி என் கருத்து இந்த த்ரெட்ல!

#Nepotism - தம் வாரிசுகளுக்கு (மகன், மகள், அண்ணன், தங்கை) எந்த திறமையும் இல்லாத போதும், தன் செல்வாக்கை பயன்படுத்தி வாய்ப்புகள், ஆதாயங்கள் கிடைக்க செய்தல்!

#Favouritism - தனக்கு விருப்பமானவருக்கோ, தெரிந்தவருக்கோ எந்த தகுதியும் இல்லையென்றாலும் வாய்ப்புகள் கிடைக்கச் செய்வது (2/11)
ஆம் பாலிவுட்டில் Nepotism தலைவிரித்து ஆடுகிறது. Aliya bhatt, Tiger shroff போன்றவர்கள் கூட எதோ நடிப்பு, நடனம் தெரிந்து வைத்திருக்கிறார்கள். எதுவுமே அறியாத Sonam Kapoor, Ananya pandey உள்ளிட்ட பலபேர் இன்னும் தாக்குப்பிடிக்க காரணம், அவர்களின் குடும்ப ஆதரவே! (3/11)

#SushantSinghRajput's death is being hijacked by toxic elements with personal political agendas unrelated to him. Don't let them rob us of this chance to spotlight #mentalhealth. I am re-sharing here my recent interview with #Parvathy @parvatweets. #LetsTalkAboutDepression
It's sickening to see a tragedy being exploited by I-me-myself individuals, a political party & fakes who have grabbed the moment to target social groups they always target anyway, thus drowning out the cause they claim to espouse i.e. nepotism. #LetsTalkAboutDepression (Contd)
So I have decided to spend the next few days sharing articles & SM posts on #mentalhealth here & recommending works of art on the subject that have been a part of my learning process. Please return the favour and recommend shows etc to me 😊 #LetsTalkAboutDepression

Unpopular #thread on #SushantSinghRajput, #KanganaRanaut, @karanjohar, and #Nepotism coming up.

Apologies in advance. Mute/block/unfollow because it's more of a rant too.

It is just sad that we all have to do this within 24 hours of Sushant's passing but it is important.
Within the first hour of the news breaking, people had started with their conspiracy theories. Some connected it with his former manager's death by suicide last week, others let their imagination run wild. Media bonkers.

He was 34. Gave a big hit in 2019 and a big flop.
Many in Bollywood literally woke up to the news, shocked and sad. Many who seem to have known what Sushant had been working with, felt guilty, possibly for not reaching out to him.

A vulture put out a tweet elaborating how he died and disclosing Sushant was depressed.
