1. Thread. I watched the first two episodes of the new @HBO Israeli series Our Boys. It’s really well done. As a meditation on extremist violence and incitement it is terrifyingly relevant to contemporary America too.
The series centers around the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers in June-July 2014, Eyal Yifrach. Gilad Shaar, and Naftali Fraenkel and the subsequent kidnapping and murder of Arab teenager Mohammed Abu Khdeir.
3. Here is an article from 2014 on the actual events. The series tracks extremely closely with the facts, timeline, and but for a few name changes the people involved.…

Is someone who creates and hosts a mastedon based fork for #feminists which is "women-centric" a Terf or just Terf-adjacent?

Looking into #spinster - a spin off from #mumsnet and #twitter - and who runs/hosts/maintains it...
The domain is on sale for $1200 or so - is it worth running a crowd-funder to raise this?

Who'd be in?
The domain it runs on...

I wish I had an anonymous donor who would just throw the money at this "problem"

1. More than background, it's employment. It shows when designers have only had #design jobs, compared to those who have wider work experience: telemarketing, teaching calculus, bagging groceries... any other context. And it's never too late to get wider life/work experience.
2. The reason is design, as a worldview, is rarely at the center of how work is done. Designers who studied design and worked in design, usually enter the workforce baffled by how little anyone cares about design, even though that's the majority of work environments there are.
3. Designers with other experience, or who enter design thru an indirect path, aren't as surprised/upset about this. They knew it before they got deep, and they're often (not always) more pragmatic about being effective -willing to do "non-design" tasks that facilitate design.

#Twitter sta auto-bannando gli utenti che postano meme a favore del #VoterID

Capite? Gli algoritmi leggono e bannano i contenuti delle immagini, a discrezione dei #BigTech!

#Censura #StopTheBias #Mameli #4agosto #Italia #Salvini #Europa #DecretoSicurezzabis
E se iniziassero a bannare i meme che chiedono la verità su #Bibbiano?
Sul ponte Morandi?
Sul carabiniere Rega?

State. pronti.

#4agosto #Italia #Censura #ParlateciDiBibbiano #CSM #BIBBIANOPOLI #BibbianoPD #MarioCercielloRega #Salvini #FreeSpeech #Mameli
+ tutti gli account che Twitter ha sospeso perché stavano postando info in real time su #ElPasoShooting in contrapposizione ai #FakeNews che stavano diffondendo molte versioni discordanti assurde(tipo caso #CiercielloRega)

Non hanno più il controllo della narrativa. E lo sanno.

Twitter is censoring @TulsiGabbard from appearing in United States trends. I got her to appear on worldwide trends but with over 113k tweets she should have been on one of my US trends lists. Tulsi Gabbard needs to address this like she did with Google.
#Tulsi2020 #DemDebate
@Twitter wants us to believe that "Assad" is tending at #12 in the United States but Tulsi Gabbard doesn't make the list. It's very clear that someone at Twitter has specifically removed her name from the trends list. @jack @kayvz @leslieberland @vijaya @derella
This is clearly Twitter interfering with our elections. Removing a candidate like this is directly harming their electability. Tulsi just filed a lawsuit against Google looks like she needs to send one your way. @brucefalck @michaelmontano @nedsegal @TwitterSupport

👏@Twitter suspends Russian Embassy in #Syria account after its latest #disinformation calling Syrian rescue workers “terrorists.” That’s how #Russia rolls: Bomb the crap out of civilians & call the rescuers terrorists. MORE Russian embassy accounts—please!…
Peak #Russia: Russia is currently jailing scores of citizens after beating the crap out of them—for exercising their freedom of speech & assembly in protests—but demands “FreedomOfSpeech” for disinformation platforms, so they can cause more misery in the world. GOOD JOB, @Twitter
Re-upping my piece about why the Kremlin loves to smack the West for not living up to Western values. It’s a propaganda tactic to keep us focused on criticizing ourselves—NOT #Russia—so Putin can continue spreading misery & corruption at home & abroad.…

As always, @stephendpalley and @NelsonMRosario cover the world of Crypto Litigation in the #CryptoCaseLawMinute. This week, they covered @michaelterpin v. AT&T and questioned who's the big winner from this week's ruling in the #SimSwap litigation. Here's my unique perspective:
1) #BiasAlert: I represent 40+ victims in #SimSwap litigation against #ATT #TMobile and #Verizon. My cases have all been filed in Arbitration (i.e. Confidential). I do not represent @michaelterpin in his lawsuit against #ATT, and I have no inside information about his case.
2) #ATT filed a Motion to Dismiss to get rid of Terpin's entire case. It is very hard to get a case dismissed, because the Court must take EVERY single fact alleged in the Complaint as TRUE.

1. At this point, I am virtually 100% convinced that the @TrueEyeTheSpy persona here on #Twitter is Ezra Cohen-Watnick.
2. He was fired from the #Trump administration in April, 2017 by #McMaster for leaking information to Congress.…
3. He was originally brought in by @GenFlynn who he worked with at the NSC.

At 31, and as a rising star in Intelligence, #DJT liked and found him another position for him under #Sessions in @TheJusticeDept. That Dept was the #NSA I believe.

@aaronjmate @TYT @MotherJones @theintercept @democracynow But Aaron, there is a price to pay for pushing fiction, rather than facts: And that is that most of these (fake-) news outlets lost all or at least a lot of credibility and what is #journalism without credibilty?
@aaronjmate @TYT @MotherJones @theintercept @democracynow 2. I recall a time when #CNN was "first for breaking news", the go-to channel when big news broke (from the passing of Princess Diana to 9/11), since #Election2016 many rightly called it "The Clinton News Network" & I hardly tune in.
#TrumpRussia #Media
@aaronjmate @TYT @MotherJones @theintercept @democracynow 3. Many great papers made the same mistake: The #NewYorkTimes, with 127 Pulitzer Prizes, suddenly allowed opinion pieces to be written by conspiracy nut #LouiseMensch. You can damage your good reputation with just one lousy piece.

Conventional wisdom may be that @GMButts is a liability for #Liberals because of his connection to #SNCLavalin affair. But there is zero doubt in my mind that #Butts will be singularly focused on ensuring that #Elxn2019 is NOT a referendum on #Trudeau but a stark choice between
#Progressives & Social #Conservatives. @gmbutts is a son of Atlantic Canada who went to school in Quebec and earned his political spurs in #Ontario He is highly skilled at the art of war, especially on key battlegrounds that will determine whether or not
#Liberals emerge with the most amount of seats, if not quite a majority. #Conservative base loyalists, many of whom post replies on #Twitter may honestly believe #Butts is a liability. Wrong! While it's true that I predicted when he left that he would return to run the campaign

Die @faznet hat @c_lindner am Wochenende zum Thema #Seenotrettung zitiert. Hier der Vollständigkeit halber sein gesamtes Statement an die FAZ, das die Antworten auf einige Fragen & Anmerkungen hier bei #Twitter enthält: #thread. 👇
"Es ist eine zivilisatorische und rechtliche Verpflichtung, Menschen nicht ertrinken zu lassen. Unterlassene Hilfeleistung ist nicht zu rechtfertigen. Auf der anderen Seite darf es keine Beihilfe zur Schlepperkriminalität bei Wirtschaftsmigranten geben.
Die Lösung muss darin liegen, dass wir mit dem Flüchtlingshilfswerk der Vereinten Nationen in Nordafrika menschenwürdige Unterbringungsmöglichkeiten und legale Fluchtwege nach #Europa schaffen.

At @WhiteHouse #SocialMediaSummit, @POTUS says "this is a historic day" as never before have so many online journalists and social media influencers have come together.
"You reach more people than any television network broadcast by far," adds @POTUS.
Faint praise for @Scavino45 -- @POTUS says he wasn't so good at running clubs but he was always looking at his computer screen.

Sábado, sabadete, por lo que hoy toca hilo sobre #privacidad y #protecciondedatos o (des)protección de datos. Tema central de hoy: ¿Por qué estamos actualmente en una situación en la que la privacidad y la falta de transparencia se han convertido en cuestiones legales centrales?
Obviamente, se debe a un rápido desarrollo tecnológico, pero quizás sea útil para nuestra discusión sobre #transparencia, #privacidad y #perfiles.
para cavar un poco más profundo en el por qué, y no en el cómo. ¡Adelante hilo!
Dos hechos tecnológicos hicieron posible esta enorme transformación: 1) el desarrollo de hardware informático y 2) el desarrollo de un software que permitió que muchos ordenadores funcionaran como uno solo. ¿Qué supusieron estos grandes hitos para las organizaciones y empresas?

💰Bank of Cyprus & TeamTrump

Wilbur Ross led a group of US European investors to purchase a $1.3B stake in Bank of Cyprus in July 2014

📊#Time for monthly #stats

Good news! #ISIS activity on @Twitter decreased again in June: 7 195 new 🎯That's 12% less compared to May.
Again, 88% of these accounts were hacked: old, inactive, weakly protected.
They could easily be frozen in bulk. 😐

Thanks everyone!
📊Time for monthly #stats

In average, we found 240 new #ISIS accounts per day in #June2019 (May: 263). Always the same guys, coming back again and again, spreading mostly the same propaganda month after month.
A bunch of losers...

📊Time for monthly #stats

Less good news now. With 6 903 suspensions for 7 195🎯, the outcome (96%) slightly dropped again, by 1%.
@TwitterSupport provided a lower service this month for #ISIS accounts removals, both in terms of quantity...

An account that can't be blocked. Interesting. #twitter #bug
After reloading the account is unblocked again. Other actions don't work either. Following increases the follow count but the account isn't followed.
Little warning: Trying to follow the account increases your own following number as well. (And you can't reduce it, because you can't unfollow the account as you are not following it.)

Selamat malam.
Disini aku mau berbagi cerita aja,
Tapi sebelumnya mohon maaf ya tulisan dan bahasa nya berantakan karena ini thread pertama aku.

Dalam thread kali ini aku akan bercerita tentang awal mula pergi meninggalkan orang tua dan kampung halaman.
Dan ini bukan #threadhorror yaa, disini aku cuma ingin berbagi cerita aja, mana tau ada yang senasib.

Eehh hastag nya apa yaa, soal nya bukan horor

#Thread #Twitter
Tepat setelah hari raya idul adha tahun 2015 aku memutuskan untuk pergi merantau seperti pemuda-pemudi yang ada di kampung tempat aku tinggal.
Tujuan merantau tak lain tak bukan adalah berharap kehidupan yang lebih baik.

@katarinabarley Ich muss es einfach loswerden :

So viel #Mist, wie du, Katarina, im letzten halben Jahr als Justizministerin verzapft hast, geht auf keine Kuhhaut.

Mit deiner #Ignoranz gegenüber jungen Bürgern, hast du der #Demokratie u. #SPD enormen #Schaden zugefügt . #Barley
Jetzt versinkst du in Brüssel in der Bedeutungslosigkeit...

Du warst anfangs für mich eine große #Hoffnung: Für das Land - vor allem aber für die #SPD.

Aber du hast unser #Vertrauen missbraucht. Du hast den #Koalitionsvertrag ignoriert. Du hast uns wie Dreck behandelt.
Du hast die #Kommunikation mit dem Bürger unterlassen. #Twitter und Co waren für dich dein "Presseorgan"....

... es war für dich aber kein Weg mit dem Bürger in Kontakt zu treten!

Dein #Politikverständnis, Katarina, ist von gestern.

Mort de rire en regardant #CashInvestigation sur #Twitter
Un showTV animé par des "journalistes" de @France2tv payés par notre redevance qui, au lieu d'informer, font les clowns et balancent les + gros clichés éculés sur un sujet qu'ils ne comprennent pas...
Le plus drôle, ce sont les incohérences des réactions des spectateurs désinformés par l’émission :

- "Les #semences modernes c'est le mal, le capitalisme qui privatise le vivant, toussa toussa ! Alors vite il faut que les #agriculteurs utilisent des "Semences Paysannes ©" ...
Sauf que... bah
Les "Semences Paysannes ©" c'est une marque déposée à l'INPI...
Que les #agriculteurs sont libres d'utiliser et de reproduire pour leur usage les #semences qu'ils veulent...
S'ils utilisent peu les "Semences Paysannes ©" c'est qu'ils y voient peu d'intérêt...

Frustrating how @TwitterSupport suspends #Iranian dissidents like #HeshmatAlavi while #IranLobby is enjoying the #FreedomOfSpeech, press & safety in #USA using full name, picture & verified @Twitter accounts.
Obviously their families in #Iran are also safe thanks 2 their lobbying
When @jack Dorsey, @ev-an Williams & @biz Stone founded @Twitter in 2006 it began as a toy for online flirtation but during the #IranElection in 2009 it suddenly turned to a serious platform for #Politics representing #FreedomofExpression & #FreedomOfSpeech in #Iran
People in #Iran used anonymous @twitter accounts to tell the world about what is happening in the streets of #Tehran in real time. This is exactly what #HeshmatAlavi was doing especially during #IranProtests in Dec 2017 until his account was suspended.
