Sunday reflection on
#GhislaineMaxwell: is it wise to publish that person X was pinged near person Y? The dillemma of public fact checking is: you need to do it in public.
Safeguards I use:
1. explain my method
2. show sources
3. Delete tweets that can be misused without context

In LinkedIn, how can I find start-ups without using the word start-up? Students of @freetechacademy asked me. I follow my mantra: "Think like a document". To find the information I'm looking for, I first analyze how the information is structured. Here is the process (1/5)
So what is typical of any start-up? They just started, duh. But what if a CEO doesn't mention the word start-up or founder? One way to approach this is to look at any given start-up and determine if there is a pattern you can use. Let's work with this profile: (2/5)
A clue is how long a CEO has worked at a company. LinkedIn uses "Jan 2022 - Present" to show experience. This could also be "Mar 2022 - Present". How do you tell Google that any month will do? To do so, we need to replace the variable (the month itself) with a star (3/5)

Hey, time for some TikTok search tips! (1/...)

Was it over WiFi? Did it use 4G/5G? I posted a second photo to make you think it was WiFi: . A WiFi sign can be seen. It wasn't used by me. I used 4G instead. This was not a clue, but a stray track. (3/10)

The next tweets are about the claim of the Russian embassy that this refugee saw how the Azov nationalist battalion while retreating, blew up the city drama theatre.
First, I upscaled the original video to the best possible quality, better than @russianembassy posted :
Then I sharpened her face and did the first run in face recognition compare tool via Azure, using the face some people think it is (a Russian activist, see…) It's unlikely it's her. Next tweet: who is she then?
