Meet Sam Patten, former #CambridgeAnalytica operative who teamed up with accused Russian intel asset, Konstantin Kilimnik. In 2014, #AggregateIQ built RIPON for SCL Elections Ltd. AIQ is now suspended by Facebook. thedailybeast.com/accused-russia… via @dcpoll
Of course @carolecadwalla covered Patton’s role in Nigeria election black ops, with (now suspended) #AggregateIQ it turns out. The Oregon office of #CambridgeAnalytica would be conveniently close to Victoria, B.C., just saying.

Meet Kristen Fotenrose, who until a month ago worked at SCL Group Ltd, but now works in the White House for the NSC. This is insanity. #CambridgeAnalytica politi.co/2pZImzA
Evidence suggests that all of SCL’s data, including that sourced from #AggregateIQ and #CambridgeAnalytica appears to flow toward SCL Group’s data warehouse. Unsettling to say the least.
Listen to this profile on BBC radio of Nigel Oakes, founder of SCL. It is both engrossing and distressing. #CambridgeAnalytica #SCL

Remember when Nix told @CommonsCMS that “certain” #CambridgeAnalytica data in the US can flow to SCL Group? From @chrisinsilico docs, note #RIPON system architecture sends data to SCL warehouse. Unreal.
That, my friends, is what digital colonialism looks like.
From the #Ripon brochure. Did Nix give this to Lukoil (Putin)?#CambridgeAnalytica #SCL #AggregateIQ documentcloud.org/documents/4421…

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.

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.

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

When the Mercers were backing #NeverTrump candidate @tedcruz--
"the Cruz camp dropped $5.8 million with the Cambridge Analytica -- spending $3 million with the company as early as February. " 5.8 Million for Stolen Data...

Remember this from January?
The Data That Turned the World Upside Down

#psychometrics #OCEAN #Psychographics motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/…
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.
