New: An apparent glitch made it appear to some users that Tom Hanks had deleted years' worth of tweets when he in fact hadn't.

This caused conspiracy theorists to claim that Hanks was attempting to hide his ties to a Satanic child-eating pedophile cult.…
I was able to confirm that some users were seeing his last tweet as being from 2017, while others could see his actual latest tweet from May of this year.

Conspiracy theorists also alleged that the picture of a shoe on Hanks' account was evidence of child trafficking.
I reached out to Twitter multiple times to ask why some users were not seeing 3 years' worth of his tweets while others were.

Twitter is looking into the matter but has yet to reply. It's unclear if this issue was present with any other accounts as well.
Twitter has confirmed to me that the issue was in fact a glitch.

Current tweets weren't showing up for some users and could only be seen under the 'Tweets and Replies' tab.

The issue appears to have affected multiple accounts and has since been fixed.

An interesting point brought up by @ZTPetrizzo - The account that tweeted out photos of the Burkman raid was created last month and had zero previous tweets.

Given Burkman and Wohl's tracks record, I'd be a bit skeptical until the FBI confirms the raid.…
A password reset attempt for the Twitter account that first tweeted out the photos of the alleged FBI raid on Jack Burkman shows that the account was created with the email ja*******@g****.***
A Virginia man tells the Daily Beast that he participated in the 'raid' after responding to a Craigslist ad seeking actors to play FBI agents for a television pilot.

In other words, the raid was staged by Burkman and Wohl.…

Be careful of any tweets regarding "Anonymous." A lot of misinformation going around.

- Trump's private information did not just leak. It was already public.

- Documents regarding rape allegations against Trump did not just leak. They have been public since 2016. ImageImageImageImage
- Anonymous did not leak the contents of Epstein's little black book as many are claiming.

The content was made public by Gawker back in 2015. #OpDeathEaters #Anonymous #Anonymousisback ImageImage
Did Anonymous hack the Chicago Police Department's radio to play N.W.A.'s "Fuck Tha Police?"

I looked into the viral claim. There is no evidence anyone claiming affiliation with Anonymous was involved.… via @dailydot

This shows the location data of phones that were on a Florida beach during Spring Break. It then shows where those phones traveled.

First thing you should note is the importance of social distancing. The second is how much data your phone gives off.
This kind of data is obviously incredibly useful and has a wide-range of applications. But while the data used is "anonymized," meaning it is not linked to the phone's owner, researchers have found that it is incredibly easy to link the two.…
This visualization comes from a joint-project between location data company X-Mode and geospatial data visualization platform Tectonix.

I wrote a quick article detailing their efforts to track the coronavirus for the @dailydot. Check it out!…

I've gone down a black hole of the latest DeepFakes and this mashup of Steve Buscemi and Jennifer Lawrence is a sight to behold
Speaking of DeepFakes, lawmakers are currently sounding the alarm over concerns that such techniques will be used during the 2020 election…
Many feel the issue is more hype than substance though. People already believe in outlandish conspiracies based on far, far less. This take feels pretty spot on:

Remember the guy who went viral for headbanging to Slayer with an American flag during Hurricane Matthew?

He's back for Hurricane Florence. @TheBigGuy904
Fox Business reporter @KristinaParts understandably confused. Not all heroes wear capes.
For those who don't remember, the video that started it all.
