I'm sounding an alarm. As we recognize victory, do NOT forget about last night's press conference and 2:22am tweet. Results are unlikely a question but he is using active measures to undermine transition. Leadership will matter, read and watch thread below.
We should indeed stay calm and let it unfold with confidence in the integrity of our elections. But we also need to recognize the important role of ALL news media and bipartisan leadership. And we need to make certain tech platforms ensure disinfo is properly handled and labeled.
Here is @selectedwisdom simply confirming, "my position hasn't changed."
Anyway, watch in order how: (1) plural press as they likely make their independent calls, (2) GOP leadership steps up, (3) Twitter, Facebook, YouTube reinforce facts and combat disinfo, (4) POTUS responds (🤞🏽hopefully he comes around), (5) how POTUS-elect calms ALL public.

Some powerful cover stories this morning. Let’s start in the Deep South. “Biden Wins” seems to be most popular along with “Time to Heal” in describing the historic victory of @JoeBiden. ImageImageImage
They were the most common headlines and storylines from the big cities, too. ImageImageImage
I did note The New York Times and Washington Post included the other part of the story, “Biden Beats Trump.” In New Hampshire, they even said, “Biden topples Trump” hinting at the autocratic tendencies of our current leader. Note: this is the only way Trump was ever mentioned. ImageImageImage

I read somewhere it was in proximity to I-95. If it simply checked box of high-end hotel with an easy exit for security then that would be amazing oops. Please confirm this y’all. I hope this guy owns the decision. Image
So it appears I may have been right. 😂

also at the polls this week. businessinsider.com/prop-24-privac…
😂 “A Facebook spokesperson did not provide comment when reached by Business Insider. A Google spokesperson did not immediately respond to Business Insider's requests for comment. Neither company has publicly taken a stance on Prop 24.”
Because if they did, it would have undermined their efforts to stop it. Instead they worked through their trade bodies and likely hoped others with more credibility could sidetrack it. Unsuccessfully. Google and Facebook haven’t been winning much lately in policy world.

Like our own President? As I reviewed the press conference late tonight, I wondered at what point we sound the alarm that he’s using active measures on us?
Please stop and read this. It’s from the Republican-led bipartisan Senate Intel Report Volume 5. It’s important we recognize what is happening. It was a landmark report and many of the same actors are still active and engaged.
This was written six weeks ago. We knew it was coming. nytimes.com/2020/09/22/us/…

This is false. I assume Twitter will label shortly.
Sweet. Troll generals are spreading tweets from Russia Today about protests to try to create election chaos. Meanwhile we keep counting votes calmly.
And a promise from the king of deceptive and misleading information. Ignore him. But be aware they are at work to try to create unrest.

One of the WSJ reporters who covers Facebook. He’s absolutely right. It’s a solution which treats all accounts and users equally benefiting those who seek to spread false election info and harms those who seek/share truth. Twitter does it right. More evidence for FB antitrust.
Good ⬆️ contrast here. Twitter added “curtain” label requiring click to see tweet plus eliminated social sharing tools. Facebook did nothing but add same neutral message it adds to factually correct info. Everyone should be telling their friends & family FB is failing democracy.
Perfect illustration and LOVE having voices sharing this. The sooner everyone understands this the better. Facebook wants everyone talking about censorship (take-down of content/accounts) but this is actually about the mechanics of spread and counter-speech. friction baby!!!
