These are UTM parameters: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UTM_param…
I'll share full URL list once I'm done cleaning it up!
Notice the "boss" mentions how many Russian accounts used messenger but nothing about # of US voters they reached 🤔
Quick background on the product 👇 but note the Trump bot featured was done my a cannabis marketer, not DJT lol
Especially given the approach of narrowing down their audience pool to 14.4 million persuadable voters in key districts of swing states.
It's important to keep top of mind: The GOP doesn't win elections by gaining new votes. They win by suppression.
So it's a given, GOP data folks are bound to be shady.
Again, maybe some strategic wording saying "relied" instead "used"
Regardless, this is bullshit.
The 3rd presidential debate was a big night for Project Alamo -- perhaps the biggest.
BUT I am very suspicious as to why he and Lansing denied their involvement when it's written in the fucking landing page URL!!!
Facebook can access everything so I assume this was so the public couldn't reach the posts. I saw the dark posts. They are boring, asking for $ or peddling merch.
The only thing I can think of is the coded landing pages (of which I have many). Yet they didn't take down the pages.
Why are DJT's "the best people" always sloppy AF?
What does it say about this org that they kept him on so long?
One word comes to mind: Complicit.
How to tell the difference from JFC vs DT campaign?
The JFC fundraising destination is donate-dot-donaldjtrump-dot-com
Docs that would be pretty useful to the RNC I'll bet.
Given the timing & that we'd just learned DCCC was hacked, why would Trump/RNC even mention DCCC in their tracking links?
Fuck coincidence. This looks like collusion.
Nugget #4: Trump campaign SMS/Text msg efforts throughout 2016 cycle were handled by another shady GOP player
We don't talk much about this GOP vendor, but they've been on @RighteousBabe4's radar for a while
THE PROSPER GROUP 📲
Look at all that happened in a matter of 2 weeks' time (tops):
📎 Cambridge Analytica
📎 The Prosper Group
TPG worked w/Trump on SMS & are quite proud of their work.
Here's the 2016 Vendor/Recipient roster (in 2 parts b/c the list is too long for clean screenshot).
Here's The Prosper Group roster for 2018 (thus far):
When Cambridge Analytica arrived in US w/a magical platform called RIPON, named for the Wisconsin town where the GOP was founded??
So as you can see, TPG is a key GOP vendor for congressional candidates.
But it doesn't stop here.
Shall we remind everyone about that dark money vault you swim in Scrooge McDuck-style in between filming those cheesy videos?
And how AAN ties back to the later days of Cambridge Analytica?
The well was already poisoned. What were big companies thinking?
📌Langone sits on AAN board
📌Langone runs NYU Langone board
📌Single anon donor gave $24.6mm to AAN in period ending June 2017, same month NYU Langone says they began working with Cambridge Analytica.
The Prosper Group is not just linked but ROOTED in darkest of all places...
🔺~85 out of 400+ DJT campaign links I found from Aug 2015 to May 2018
🔺At least 70 the TPG marked links were for SMS mktg
🔺5 links were via the fundraising mobile app
🔺14 TPG links were Email blasts
NOTE: This channel is likely underrepresented in my collections; b/c those links contain personal ID info (name/email/etc) so each unique link gets activity from 1 user vs FB ad getting lots of clicks.
Less likely for ppl to share (& for Google to index) the former
For me to find Email tracking links w/personal information, the Trump email recipient would have to have SHARED their personal link somewhere others can access it.
Tip: Check links you get from emails for your personal info BEFORE you share them...
If this is you, do you still have the original email from Feb 6, 2017?
Did you sign up for the Trump/RNC Joint Fundraising Committee email list? If not, help me figure out how you got in.
Vendors who took their money and put it directly into channels that multiplied said money by generating small dollar donations.
Digital media is RIPE for Money Laundering.
See where I am going with this? 💰
Why are GOP mktg efforts so centralized w/this 1 Indiana vendor?
Why so many individual campaigns/orgs paying TPG directly vs. consolidating under RNC/RSC/NRCC⁉️
What did Facebook know & when did they know it?
I wonder if they've reached a consensus on what to tell Mueller & the powers that be.
"CambridgeAudiences" just crept into their tracking links on their own.... riiiiiight.
Lots of dark shit here w/The Prosper Group. That Pence staffer who went on to found TPG -- this is not your typical marketer.
Put simply-- if Alex Jones were to set up a marketing agency, it would look A LOT like The Prosper Group...
The Prosper Group is looking more & more like a homegrown Cambridge Analytica w/interesting origins (Pence).
This Indiana marketing (collective?) that scored big $$ in 2016 easily ties to Mercer world via Pence campaign for IN gov where Luidhardt & Jayson Manship worked on digital.
The Prosper Group duo were on the Seth Rich crazy train at the same time as this guy ⏬
Shortly after Butowsky's Mercer connections had been...let's say "acid washed"?
TPG is big in list rental- think about value of lists when married up to CA FB data📌
Nugget #5: 100% of DJT/JFC fundraising was on REVV platform.
Lansing was also CDO at the RNC. Snapshot of his resume via @RighteousBabe4:
Any FEC guidelines re: reporting revenue sharing?
⏱️He lasted approx 2 Scaramucci's⏱️
The Trump small dollar donation machine is built on a platform owned by a guy who couldn't pass FBI bckgrd check -- and WH really doesn't want us to know this.
➖Preferred pymnts processor of RNC & Trump campaign
➖Takes 4% rev share they say includes Stripe, yet FEC shows direct pymnts
➖Can't pass FBI background check
"The spokesperson did not respond to questions asking why Twitter has decided to eliminate the ad format and what, if any, alternatives Twitter offers for brands that had used it."
A crowdsourcing experiment to gauge just how sophisticated Trump targeting is/was.
You can read more here but...
Coby & Parscale weren't the only ones crying about Twitter bias towards Trump.
Back in April 2016, Breitbart claimed Twitter had "shadow banned" Trump. They even reference an algorithm change 😂
This is fake news.
Yet the article is still up on Breitbart to this day (w/no correction).
2 burning ?'s here:
Was Parscale around enough to know what was going on in SA?
Did Sprinklr really compete "Apprentice-style" like Parscale said?
Sprinklr was already RNC vendor. A key platform for GOP data ops in 2014 cycle on. Parscale's team didn't vet-- they inherited Sprinklr.
Sprinklr is a very robust solution. You don't need a big team for Paid Social marketing when you have a fancy management tool like this
But I believe it's possible there was 1 face-off, in which Sprinklr (RNC vendor) beat out Kenshoo.
If you're still with me---go here next:
The URL Project pokes holes (& in some cases debunks) the Trump data narrative to which many reporters subscribe. Time to ask more questions.
📑 tab #1: all 477 coded links from FB ads
📑 tab #2: the 40 links that mention Cambridge Analytica
📑 tab #3: the 17 links for Pence FB ads STILL LIVE (+ad links)
150+ Trump Twitter ads plus tracking links added to the collection (mostly Promoted Tweets)
Weird, haven’t found any Pence P-Tweets... have you seen any?
Analysis to follow 🤓
They got so amped over selling Hillary for Prison buttons they forgot to finish creating their ad.
