.@the_illinoize & @pfingsten1 should be ashamed. They should have checked w/ election-security experts re: modems & connectivity b4 publishing more disinformation from election officials. 🙄#RemoveTheModems 1/
Here is a letter signed by many election-security experts refuting the election officials’ claim that the modems do not connect to the internet. 2/ drive.google.com/file/d/1-Fd8a8…
3/ Screenshot from the expert letter.
4/ Further proof of that internet connectivity, which Illinois election officials wrongly dispute. This article was written by esteemed journalist @kimzetter politico.com/news/2020/08/1…
5/ Note that @pfingsten1 did not have my contact info. He emailed ProtectOurVotes.com. The email there is handled by my colleague in Switzerland. She forwarded to me as soon as she received it and I replied a few hours ago before I saw this tweet.
6/ @pfingsten1 also DMd me but I don’t follow him and DMs from those I don’t follow go into another box. I didn’t see his. I had to try to DM him myself for it to pop up.
7/ Either way, it is utterly irresponsible for @pfingsten1 to publish this disinformation (falsely accusing me of disinformation) without apparently researching the issue or contacting election-security experts like @kskoglund who was interviewed by NBC News on this issue.
8/ Here is @CynthiaMcFadden’s report confirming internet connectivity. Is @pfingsten1 going to publicly accuse them of spreading disinformation too? nbcnews.com/nightly-news/v…
.@threadreaderapp Plz unroll or compile. TY.
9/ NIST also confirms that the cellular modems connect to the internet. collaborate.nist.gov/voting/pub/Vot…
10/ @the_illinoize’s own article acknowledges that Cook county (the most populous in Illinois) has here cellular modems. Lake County (third most populous) appears to have them too. The article did not identify which other Illinois counties have them. lakecountyil.gov/DocumentCenter…
.@threadreaderapp plz compile or unroll. TY.

These poll pads (electronic poll books supplied by Knowink)—which IT expert @HarriHursti says “aren’t ready for prime time”—are now in 25 states plus Canada & Australia. The founder is a former Republican election official. The product developer campaigned for Ed Martin. 😳 1/
3/ From Knowink’s website. Eek.

In 2000, “hanging chads” helped Rs run out the clock on the presidential recount even as the recount narrowed Bush’s alleged “victory” to just 537 votes in Florida. Trump will likely try to weaponize the mail voting signature match reqmt to similar effect in November. 1/
Many of the faulty punch cards in 2000 came from Sequoia. Several Sequoia employees told Dan Rather that Sequoia changed paper stock just b4 the election, that they knew there would be problems, & that pre-election testing showed the chads would stick. 2/ wired.com/2007/08/sequoi…
Meanwhile, very little attention was paid to the discovery that 16k votes had vanished from Gore’s electronic total in Volusia County, FL & another 3K in Brevard County. Too bad a complete statewide Florida recount was never conducted or completed. 😳 3/

The 2020 Trump app “is a crude approximation of a traditional news outlet,” featuring faux news anchors like Lara Trump & Kimberly Guilfoyle. It “enables users to stay fully sequestered within the fact-optional Trump universe.”
By ⁦@suehalpernVT⁩ 1/ newyorker.com/news/campaign-…
2/ “To access the Trump app, users must share their cell-phone #s w/ the campaign. ‘The most important...thing in politics is a cellphone #,’ Parscale told Reuters. ‘When we receive cellphone #s, it...allows to identify them across the databases. Who are they...everything.’”
3/ “Michael Marinaccio, the chief operating officer of Data Trust, a private Republican data company, said recently that ‘what’s new this year, or at least a sense of urgency, is getting as many cell-phone numbers as we can in the voter file data.’”
