Among the less-frequently mentioned venues for information warfare is Wikipedia. We pulled edit history since 1/1/2019 for each 2020 Democratic candidate's Wikipedia article; @TulsiGabbard's has seen the highest degree of activity, followed by @PeteButtigieg's.

@TulsiGabbard @PeteButtigieg @ZellaQuixote Which 2020 Democratic candidate #Wikipedia articles most frequently experience edits that are later undone (vandalism, trolling, edit wars, etc)? The @JulianCastro, @JohnDelaney, @BillDeBlasio, and @BetoORourke articles appear to be the most contentious by this metric.
Next, we ran sentiment analysis on each revision of each candidate's article. Scores average between neutral and positive. The biggest changes in sentiment are @marwilliamson (decreased in August), @TulsiGabbard (increased in August), and @PeteButtigieg (increased in January.)

@NellyTadi @Jayydubby @Patrick01_Codes So sorry for the delay guys;

So, today i am going to be talking about regexs or regular expressions and how formulate them in 2 programming languages. We are going to start with the basics and from there we will look at the meta syntax combinations that come together to make... possible to perform matches on strings (matching sequences) using patterns (formed by meta characters / meta syntax).

Regular Expressions are sequence of characters that define a pattern that is always finite, unambiguous or unaffected by context.

SOOOO excited for the next installment of @ACRMS #RaceB4Race symposia @FolgerLibrary next week. FYI, this is ongoing series of symposia that centers the work of scholars of color. Thread of random thoughts about ways to go forward re #RaceB4Race and #ShakeRace.
warning, I kinda suck at threads, so grab yo coffee. /1.5
I have been thinking of things that need to be done to elevate this work/change the fields. Much of this is #ShakeRace specific, but some have broader applications. /2

#Scrittori poco noti da rivalutare, puntata n°6: Emile #Couè .
Il padre fondatore del movimento del "Positive Thinking" ( da non confondersi col "Positivism" ), colpevolmente sconosciuto in #Italia, tanto da non avere ancora una pagina di #Wikipedia nella nostra lingua.
#EmileCouè era un farmacista #francese nato nel 1857 che spostò in suoi interessi dalla chimica all' #interiorità umana e alla psicologia, creando i presupposti per il pensiero positivo, la visualizzazione, il training autogeno, l' auto miglioramento e molto altro.
Emile Couè arrivò a formalizzare una pratica #terapeutica ( funzionante in molti casi da lui riportati ) in grado di ostacolare i distruttivi pensieri negativi, poggiante su 4 concetti fondamentali:…

Never seen timeline of Robert Swan #Mueller III's time in Vietnam

Mueller was identified as CIA material in 68/69, was in UVirginia 1970-73, CIA debriefed in 1969

1971: CIA Summer intern program, a young #BillBarr is enrolled (also in 1972)

Mueller+Barr friends since 1971?
[2] Need to revisit work of @btaylor_71 and others

RSM3 married into the Cabel (a Standish)- I mean the Caball- in 1966

Did he really need 2 years of officer training to let his leg heal before going to Vietnam in Nov 1968?

The worst of the bloodshed just ended that Sep 1968
@btaylor_71 [3] Surely his father at du Pont had nothing to do with it

Surely his grandad who was the exclusive distributor of uranium fuel rods to the US Navy had no impact

Mueller got a letter of praise from the Pacific fleet commander every time he made his bed properly

Ai #cialtroni (compreso il @pdnetwork che ha espresso solidarietà alla @GDF e all’equipaggio della "motovedetta speronata" dalla nave #SeaWatch), agevolo un recente video che mostra una nave che SPERONA un traghetto.
Vi è chiaro, ora, cosa sia "speronare" un'imbarcazione? 🤔
Ripropongo anche il video pubblicato da @repubblica da cui si vede che, senza alcun dubbio, #CarolaRackete | #SeaWatch3 (stazza lorda, 645 TSL) NON ha speronato la motovedetta della @GDF.
Altrimenti, quell'imbarcazione sarebbe finita in 1000 pezzi.…
@pdnetwork ... se prima di pubblicare quella *cialtronata di tweet*, aveste telefonato, per esempio, a Massimo D'Alema (uno che di barche ne capisce), avreste evitato una figura di merda colossale.
Giusto, @buzz196907 ? 🤔

Se uno vuole rendersi conto del ruolo reazionario e di propaganda del Potere svolto da #Wikipedia, esatto opposto funzionale della Encyclopédie, può per esempio leggere la seguente, impegnata a smontare l'unica tesi logica, quella giornalistica:…
La voce, frutto di un ventennio di elaborazione, sta dalla parte del Potere e della sua Propaganda di Guerra e contro il rasoio di Occam.
Quando #Wikileaks pubblica #CollateralMurder con documenti originali del Potere, il giochino usato dalle fonti predilette da Wikipedia, crolla
E quali sono le fonti predilette da Wikipedia (e dalla antitesi del giornalismo di inchiesta che sono i debunker professionisti)? Le veline dei governi occidentali distribuite dalle Betulle e le dichiarazioni, prese face value, degli stessi politici rappresentanti del Potere.

Tarihin en kapsamlı, en açık, en özgür, en tarafsız bilgi kaynağı; tarihte ilk kez tüm dünyadan yazarların katkılarıyla oluşmuş; dünyanın en çok okuduğu; tamamen bedava ve canlı ansiklopedi #Wikipedia'nın tamamını, tarihin en gülünç sansürüyle halkına yasaklayan ilk ülke Türkiye+

+Yasaklamak yerine mesela o 2 maddede halkın parasıyla beslenen #SETA şaklabanlarına #AkP görüşleri yazdırılsaydı ne olurdu? Şimdi tüm dünya, #Suriye iç savaşında terörizme destek olduğunu yazdı diye #Wikipedia'nın tamamını yasaklayan TR'nin AİHM yargılanışını konuşuyor olmazdı.+

The end of another semester of engaging students with @WikiEducation at @MissouriSandT @sandtcasb in #HistSCI means another tweet thread about this super fun project.
49 students, 32 articles, 40K words added, +285K views so far. I love their work! Take a look!
I'm going to group them. First group-- #WomenInSTEM #WomeninHistory
Students found that, uh oh, it's HARD to find reliable sources on women in science! This didn't stop them, though. They pushed through and learned some new research skills.… is 1 product.
Tycho's sister,… was another article that needed work. The women who worked on this one had to find all sources on Tycho then sift through for the 2-3 pages about Sophia. Thank goodness for good #librarians at S&T who were patient and helpful!

If you're angry about the recent deletion of articles by @jesswade from #Wikipedia, there is a way to help. Of course, that way is also open to you if you are not angry about those deletions: Help to edit Wikipedia. 1/n
After all, Wikipedia is "the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit"! Only that it's not that simple, of course. It's easy to become enthusiastic about contributing to Wikipedia, start editing, have some really frustrating encounters with other members of the community, and 2/n
then leave because who needs that kind of aggravation when they are just trying to volunteer for something? This thread is about how to do good things on Wikipedia and avoid at least some of the frustration-inducing pitfalls. 3/n

'All Things Made New' Dr Charles Henry talks about the the intersection between technology and culture @NLNZ
#remix culture feels ephemeral but put in a more stable environment we get #Wikipedia a more serious product.
The challenge for libraries and archives is around scale, the sheer number of digital artifacts. But also, what is real and authentic?
Read 8 tweets On the 6 February 2019 #BBCNews reported that the #Venezuelan military, under the orders of #Maduro blocked the Tienditas bridge on the border with #Colombia to humanitarian aid. The bridge was completed in 2016 was blocked by #Colombia and never opened!
Bridge building was concluded in early 2016, but due to the crisis between Venezuela and Colombia in 2015 the bridge has not been officially opened.
Interestingly the #Wikipedia reference to the bridge was edited on the 7th February 2019. Mentions of the bridge never opening were deleted. The original Wikipedia entry referenced this article

The Wikipedia #1Lib1Ref campaign starts soon! "Your goal today is to add one reference to #Wikipedia! Any citation to a reliable source is a benefit to Wikipedia readers worldwide." Make sure to include the hashtag #1Lib1Ref in your edit summary.
Last year was my first year participating in #1Lib1Ref and I am thoroughly hooked! Trying to make it a regular part of my praxis to add relevant citations to #Wikipedia when I’m doing collection development or answering reference questions.
Last year for #1Lib1Ref I focused on on Eastern European literature, translating and creating Wikipedia pages for literary awards, authors and works where none yet existed in English, adding authority control information and linking to @Wikidata.

This semester in my Arts of Islam survey, I decided to scrap the research paper and have students collaborate to re-write @Wikipedia articles. It ended up better than I could have imagined & transformed how I think about teaching #StudentsOfIslamicArt #IslamicArt #MedievalTwitter
I was hesitant about shaking up a popular class that had worked well for years, but one statistic finally convinced me: 90% of Wikipedia articles are written by men - and largely by men from Euro-American contexts.…
The oft-maligned #Wikipedia is the now the world's most frequently-consulted source of information & fifth-most visited website. Because anyone can be an editor, it's on us to make it the best resource it can be. If you think Wikipedia is bad, look in the mirror. Wikipedia is us.
