Facebook's culpability in the rise of far-right extremism is not a matter of conjecture. It is a well documented fact. Sandberg was personally warned for years this could happen and turned a blind eye to curry political favor and create enormous profit.
Sandberg used meetings w/ civil rights leaders to land favorable headlines, and many news outlets were all too happy to oblige. She ignored the counsel of every organization that had been warning Facebook for >half a decade that a reckoning was coming.

Facebook's top civil rights partners, whom I have interviewed for dozens of hours over the past year, are unanimous in the belief that Sheryl Sandberg has personally misled them and abused their relationship, usually for PR. And I plan to have more reporting on that soon.
Let's not forget that Facebook hired a group of professional slanderers that pushed anti-Semitic and anti-Black smears to conduct opposition research into civil rights leaders

News: Nearly every Parler post was archived prior to the AWS shutdown by hacker @donk_enby, including millions of videos containing users' location data. The data will be made available to researchers. gizmodo.com/every-deleted-…
Just attaching this tweet here b/c a lot of people are talking about "social security numbers" and that doesn't have anything to do with this story.

Life comes at you fast: Every effort since 2018 to pass legislation mandating post-election audits (see: SAFE Act, PAVE Act) was blocked by GOP leaders, including Trump, citing “federal overreach” and “states’ right.” Now they’re demanding them.
Last year, Kamala Harris cosponsored a bill by @RonWyden that would have made risk-limiting audits a requirement after the election. It never made it out of a GOP-controlled committee. Russian election meddling was a top concern at the time.

The White House also helped kill a separate bipartisan proposal ahead of the 2018 midterms that included post-election audits and paper ballots, even after it was watered down to the point of being unenforceable.

Spoke to a postal worker today who explained why medication is the 1st thing people noticed was missing. They said when DeJoy ordered shifts to end even if all mail wasn't delivered, carriers were told to prioritize Amazon packages, then Priority mail, then everything else 1/
Maintaining the Amazon contract was 1st priority. Then higher priced postage. But drugs are always shipped cheap b/c they know a month in advance when it has to get there. No need for 2nd day or anything like that. So meds are always among mail leftover at the end of the day 2/
"Amazon is paying us money. So we're only delivering Amazon. And then if you have time, Priority. If Priority is good, then you do Parcel Select, or Standard Class packages...They always send drugs using the cheapest method, especially the Veteran's office."

A tweet falsely claiming "Antifa" broke into the Seattle city hall last night was spread by Fox host @TomiLahren, @TomFitton and other large accounts.

It was then shared by Sen. @TedCruz's national security advisor & a House Oversight Committee staffer.

Lahren removed the retweet after Fox News was contacted by Gizmodo.

It was also shared by @KaitMarieox (gun girl), Mike @Cernovich, and @ReaganBattalion, among others.

The tweet came from a @BlazeTV "reporter" -- @ElijahSchaffer. Blaze has not responded.
Sorry for the erasure in that first tweet: The false allegation about people breaking into the Seattle City Hall (where protesters were actually invited in by a city official and nothing was damaged) also included #BlackLivesMatter.

A Daily Caller reporter claimed DC protesters were breaking into houses (below) citing police as his source.

New video shows a DC resident sheltering protesters who were then gassed inside:

Are these the same event?
Accusing people of breaking and entering with an anonymous source. Yep, that’s how reporting works.
Daily Caller deleted a tweet accusing people of "breaking into people's houses" based on @nieto_phillip's reporting. Then tweeted they were just "seeking refuge in someone's home"

No correction

Is this how you're doing things, @GPIngersoll?
