**Public Service Announcement***

I've done a few of these announcements. Their intention is to make people aware of particularly abusive or dangerous trolls.......

#FBPE #StopBrexit #RejoinEU #GTTO #Brexit #BrexitReality #Trolls #StopBullying

Thread below.....
I could just block and move on, but then someone else will have to deal with it.
I figure its in the best interests of the Remain/Rejoin movement, and the British people as a whole to be aware of this guy, and block him now so you won't be subjected to his trolling later.

If we're all silent the cycle just continues over and over and over again.

El gobierno cree que los #Trolls publicaron un 68% m谩s durante el #9J (Abro hilo cortito) y acusan a la oposici贸n de fogonear el banderazo.

驴El fin de las redes libres en #Argentina? 驴Puede haber otra conexi贸n con el chavismo? 馃憞
Uno de los coletazos que dej贸 el banderazo por la Rep煤blica y las instituciones fue que tanto el gobierno como algunos sectores de la oposici贸n quedaron descolocados por la cantidad de gente que sali贸 en todo el pa铆s 馃憞
Quiz谩s una de las voces m谩s resonantes del gobierno fue el ya desgastado #Cafiero que tir贸 una frase exacta para leer entre l铆neas
驴C贸mo puede hacer el gobierno para desinstalar "un discurso de odio? Vamos por partes 馃憞鈥

Twitter & Propaganda:
In Pakistan, the use of social media is on rise. However, there are contradictory views on usage-percentage of each social medium, i.e. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest. According to estimates of AlphaPro there were 35 million social media
users in Pakistan by March 2018. Out of 35 million 92% were Facebook users. Percentage of Twitter users was 0.1%. However, according to estimates of GlobalStats Stat Counter, the percentage of Twitter users in Pakistan by March 2019 was 5%. Five percent users make 1.75 million
out of 35 million active social media users. Though this number is still very low as compared to Facebook users, but the rapid growth in Twitter users is reflection of increase in Twitter popularity among Pakistani social media users.

Det 盲r sv氓rt att f枚rest盲lla sig om det som sker i Kina. Uppenbarligen samlar de in dissidenter. All internet trafik 盲r sp盲rrad utom de k盲llor som kommer via den kinesiska staten. Det som p氓g氓r i Kina ang氓ende #Coronavirus 盲r en krigshandling av fr盲mmande makt.
Det h盲r viruset 盲r

D盲rmed 盲r skiten tillverkad av m盲nniskan. Det s盲gs att den sl氓r h氓rdare mot kinesiska m盲n 盲n mot andra raser, vilket betyder att denna "attack" kommer ej fr氓n deras egna led.

The far-right attacking the anti-fascists with a hammer, then switching the narratives claiming that the anti-fascists attacked them with a hammer. #Antifa means "anti-fascists." It is not an organization. If you are against fascists, YOU are antifa. #Portland
鈥淪mear campaigns鈥 against #antifa are used to create the image of internal enemy and 鈥渟capegoats.鈥 Since Charlottesville, such campaigns against #Antifa became a compulsory exercise for #AltRight, #Kremlin #trolls and #Bots. #disinformation is an important tool in cyberwar.
In 2017, the online campaign used fake #antifa (an umbrella term for anti-fascist protestors) Twitter accounts to claim anti-fascists promoted violence against women supporting Trump or white supremacy. @bellingcat research showed the evidence of campaign orchestration on 4chan.

The far-right spread disinfo on El Paso "siege"/"violence" planned "by Antifa" 3 days before Aug 3 shooting. A peaceful action was planned by native Americans/POC LGBT organization BorderResistance (no affiliation/mention of antifa) #ElPaso #elpasoshooter
The far-right and the Kremlin carried out an orchestrated attack on antifa for several years. A good thread by @RVAwonk

Aunque Twitter no es uno de los mundos virtuales m谩s poblados (un 26,2% seg煤n el CIS) sus mensajes son p煤blicos y est谩n muy vinculados al periodismo y se amplifican en los medios. Lo explico en m谩s detalle en la web de #Verificat鈥

"we are now located in the SAME building where the Foreign Journalists are,we have close working relationships w/ hundreds of journalists. In addition we launched media project working in many platforms,twitter in Arabic, Russian, French & English."
How #Israel-i Propaganda (#Hasbara) Works: #TheLuntzDocument
If you want to understand how the #propaganda works you need to read the Luntz document -- "The Key," Luntz says, "is the Claim that the Fight is Over Ideology, Not Land. About Terror, & Not Territory."

After 70 years of imperial/neoliberal indoctrination the web of lies is so obviously absurde (9/11, Skripal, WH = ISIS, etc.), that it is dissoluting. The empathetic humanity connects, closes ranks and sends their eternal psychopathic rulers and their lackeys into nowhere land.
The "evil empire" is a lifelong three year old child. I certainly loved my children at that age too, however only because they created not only a surreal mess, but also made steady progress.

A great documentary about psychopathy and society:
The elite invented "democracy" to protect them from the empathetic people. The media are their means for misleading the people sedated by "democracy". This is definitely a bad thing since the people have become educated and the elite almost totally insane.

Well.....not sure these are two I would want supporting me:

Everyone's heard of #FakeNews. Before it was called fake news, it was called #disinformation. The goal is to cause confusion and chaos, so people don't know who to trust or what to believe. THREAD 1 #RussianCollaborators #Propaganda #FridayFeeling #FridayMotivation
Disinformation promotes so much misleading & false info that people lose faith, give up. Disinformation is designed to weaken the enemy by discrediting it with lies and "leaks" of damaging "info". Hint: the enemy is us, the resistance. 2鈥
Joseph #Stalin is credited with inventing the term "dezinformatsiya", defined in the Great Soviet Encyclopedia as "dissemination (in the press, on the radio, etc.) of false reports intended to mislead public opinion". 3 #ColdWar #Propaganda #Lies #misinformation
