Many in 🇨🇳China’s gay community are strangers to Western #LGBT cultures, and Westerners are unfamiliar with their Chinese counterparts’ lifestyles

Using Western metrics like #pride month & #rainbowcapitalism 🏳️‍🌈 to weigh their joy is intellectually flawed…
#Homosexuality existed throughout ancient China, but #gaypride is a modern American celebration → its irrelevance here is nothing to be appalled about

Demanding Asian policies to be more Westernised reinforces the harmful narrative that homosexuality is a Western “lifestyle” 👬
Gay venues and activities in China are unlike those in the West. E.g. In #Chengdu, teahouses are a popular LGBT integration space 🍵

Allies should NOT assume that they are oppressed based on a limiting framework that reduces the West to #liberalism and the East to #conservatism

«Госслужащих и банкиров будут штрафовать за рабочее общение в иностранных мессенджерах»¹ — депутаты Госдумы приняли в 1-мчтении поправки в КоАП. Соавтор инициативы — конечно Горелкин.


Горелкину простительно не знать российского законодательства ↓
и правоприменительной практики… Он депутат — не читатель, а писатель. От него ждёшь откровений! Так и вышло. Законодатель перечислил недозволенные на работе мессенджеры, чем ввёл офисных в иллюзию безопасности.
Клерки вот-вот вообразят, что в одних мессенджерах рассказывать рабочие секреты «нельзя», значит в остальных«можно»? Это не так. Тоже нельзя. Сядем все! Карать ВСЕХ за ВСЕ потусторонние средства связи на работе, включая русскую связь — решил Конституционный суд РФ в 2017 году.

"De la 'post-truth politics', @elonmusk nous fait entrer dans l’ère de la 'post-truth economics' à travers l’invention d’une capacité de nuisance inédite sur le plan économique."
"Le #trolling économique lui permet de disrupter les codes du marché financier mondial et les institutions qui l’encadrent. @elonmusk peut déstabiliser le marché financier de la Tech [...] : un tweet et le marché, irrationnel, peut, théoriquement, s’effondrer."

Elon (all)
I have been working on the Everything App since I observed why MSFT was failing at the architecture of MS Vista OS. That analysis, plus a prediction of the 'distributed employee' future, drove my design of Oversing (UI) + Runcible (Backend).
1/n @elonmusk
But when I combined the UI/Backend with my work on 'the methods by which humans avoid truth (lying)', I understood that an Everything (universal) App for desktop, tablet, and phone etc, that solved the negatives of social media 'regulation' as well, was possible.
2/n @elonmusk
The problem, of course, by being ahead of the curve, was using a business model that was fundable long enough to produce this rather large set of functionality -b/c the investment horizon of capital investors is shorter than the R&D horizon of producing that tech.

1/ @GWtweets George Washington University Chinese Students and Scholars Association (GWUCSSA) is launching a witch-hunt to the student activists puting my boycott #beijing2022  posters in campus.

A classic smear campaign to cancel criticism against CCP via calling it “racism”. ImageImageImage
2/ The collection posted in @GWtweets includes 5 posters depicting CCP’s

1. Oppression of the Tibetans
2. Uyghur genocide
3. The dismantling of HK democracy
4. The regime’s omnipresent surveillance systems
5. lack of transparency surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Image
3/ it is misleading & ignorant to call my art “anti-China” or “racist” giving fact I am Chinese artist
The smear campaign from CCP affiliated groups like this directly harms #FreeSpeech in uni

China has warned investing in Metaverse stating its still infancy and could likely end in tears for investors

Meanwhile ByteDance has bought VR gear maker Pico for $1.4 billion

#China #Bytedanc #Metaverse #Pico #VR #VRChat
#Pico was valued by PE investors in March 2021 at nearly $155 Million and now #Bytedance has purchased Pico at $1.4 Billion… a very aggressive valuation for a VR gear manufacturer
VR is the interface of Metaverse, but at present, the most widely used scene of consumer VR is games.

At least five popular Chinese apps have suspended new user registrations in compliance with regulatory demands

This is part of China's latest #BigTech Crackdown (read more about that here...)
Ride-hailing behemoth #DiDi Chuxing has over 90% marketshare in China and stopped new user registrations after an investigation into the company's #cybersecurity practices

#ChinaTech #BigTech Image
However, the impact of suspending new registrations is limited for big firms like #WeChat because they are already so widely implemented

Infographic: How the Global Pandemic Spread From China

An Epoch Times investigation traces how initial outbreaks around the world were seeded by travelers from Wuhan, ground zero of the pandemic (Thread👇)
For at least 3 weeks, #Beijing knew about the severity of the #CCPVirus outbreak in #Wuhan, but downplayed the crisis and suppressed any information at odds with the official narrative.

The coverup allowed the virus to spread, sparking a global #Pandemic.…
Internal documents obtained by @EpochTimes show that patients with #CCPVirus-like symptoms started appearing in #Wuhan hospitals from September 2019, suggesting the disease may have been silently spreading around the city in the autumn.…

On the day that @realDonaldTrump's WeChat ban comes into effect, a federal judge temporarily blocked the executive order, writing that evidence reflects that "#WeChat is effectively the only means of communication for many in the community,...…
... not only because China bans other apps, but also because Chinese speakers with limited English proficiency have no options other than WeChat."
"The judge's order not only blocks the Trump administration's attempted ban on downloads of WeChat, but also blocks the government's effort to restrict internet infrastructure companies from carrying or hosting WeChat's internet traffic."

The proposed ban on #TikTok and #WeChat is nonsensical and harmful toward our communities in the US and abroad for a number of reasons. (Thread)… A preview image of a young woman's face within @efforg's Tik
First: This isn't just a ban from using App Stores, but from using US networks entirely—and it's untenable. Code is itself speech. Banning Americans from using TikTok and WeChat would violate their own First Amendment rights.…
Second: Trump says he’s banning the apps due to national security concerns. While there are genuine security concerns with WeChat and TikTok, this ban does not solve them. Worse, blocking app store security updates makes them less secure.

Great article on how #ByteDance's #tiktok algorithms made it such a success in #China; mainly because in #China, AI algorithms have been applied at scale to entertainment. With AI, the more inputs you have, the better and more accurate the algorithm becomes.
2/ #Tiktok would not likely be as effective in the US because the market is smaller (fewer inputs) than in China. This means that the algorithms could not be optimized as it has with #Douyin in China. In the US, algorithm optimization at #Microsoft, #Google, #Facebook, #Apple
3/ is a much slower and better documented process. With #facebook, it monetized advertising mainly through small ads and political ads targeting extremist subcultures and conspiracy groups, which adds to social fracturing in the US. #Facebook makes money from US collapse.

Should Chinese diplomats be banned on Twitter?

I'll be leading a 30-minute debate next week (9/10) between two @ipacglobal members: the US's @RepGallagher (R-WI) and European Parliamentarian @MiriamMLex on this very question.

A brief thread on why this matters. (1/) Image
Since the start of the Hong Kong protests in April 2019, we've seen a massive uptick in Chinese state messaging on Twitter.

Accounts connected to Chinese embassies, consulates, and ambassadors have increased by more than 250 percent. (2/) Image
As might be expected, these diplomatic accounts have consistently pushed pro-Beijing narratives, at times with a complete disregard for facts or reality. Here is a top Chinese diplomat alleging COVID-19 originated in the U.S. (3/) Image
