2.#Wylie explains RIPON operation, RIPON used “data exhaust” to build psychological profiles in coordination with Cambridge University faculty. it creates modern day colonialism, harming fragile democracies, works illegally, without morals.
Notice our AGs can’t go to #CambridgeAnalytica directly. Is it because it’s a British company? America’s voter dossiers are sitting in London and even by threat of legal action, SCL are weirdly refusing to fully disclose them to us. Now its servers seized by British authorities.
Good thing the UK Information Commissioner told @DamianCollins in House of Commons that the UK Data Protection Act applies regardless of citizenship if we perform a Subject Access Request and prove #CambridgeAnalytica processed our data. I did, last year.
We can’t assess the potential effects of psychographics if haven’t even seen a single complete, example of a #CambridgeAnalytica voter dossier. Let’s wait until we get mine back before we decide one way or another.

Cambridge Analytica whistleblower, Chris Wylie says that data firm, AIQ, was effectively “CA’s Canadian branch”. /3 channel4.com/news/brexit-ca…
I’m hearing Bannon lied at the FT conference. I have many reciepts that show Cambridge Analytica and SCL Group are tightly intertwined down to our data. Plus Nix told Parliament data is shareable between the entities.
Note Bannon’s Kremlin-style “whattaboutism” deflection but he’s wrong: Facebook’s Custom Audiences and Lookalikes features were not available during Obama campaigns. Bannon’s Project Alamo was all about uploading voter files into Facebook. variety.com/2018/biz/news/…
I'm a "Hollywood Liberal" Ted. I like to put my hard earned $$ behind candidates who unlike you, do not take 11 MILLION $$ into your Super PAC from the Mercers or use Cambridge Analytica's stolen data to influence the outcome of your campaign #BetoForTexas @Rosie@chelseahandler
3. As a "Hollywood Liberal" @tedcruz I prefer to give my $$ and support to candidates who do not foment hate and virulent Islamophobia like you and associate with hate groups like Pamela Geller's who is banned from entering the UK. #BetoForTexas
The "Big Five" (OCEAN) has become the standard technique of psychometrics. But for a long time, the problem was data collection, because it involved filling out a complicated, highly personal questionnaire. Then came the Internet. And Facebook. And Kosinski
Kosinski and his team could now ascribe Big Five values based on how many profile pictures/contacts a person has on Fb, but we also reveal something about ourselves even offline.
Phone motion sensors reveals how quickly we move/how far we travel (emotional instability)
Revealed: 50 million Facebook profiles harvested for Cambridge Analytica in major data breach
Whistleblower describes how firm linked to former Trump adviser Steve Bannon compiled user data to target American voters theguardian.com/news/2018/mar/…
Cambridge Analytica who worked with Trump’s team and the winning Brexit campaign harvested millions of FB profiles of US voters, in the tech giant’s biggest ever data breach, and used them to build a powerful software program to predict and influence choices at the ballot box.
They used personal information taken without authorization in early 2014 to build a system that could profile individual US voters, in order to target them with personalised political advertisements.
