So, uh, what was in the new videos Trump uploaded to YouTube? Any big Trump channel fans out there who can help?
This is what I get for not smashing that like button, subscribing, and clicking that notification bell fam
Looks like he just uploaded his speech today — from a tipster who still had the videos showing.
YouTube just confirmed to me that the enforcement was related to comments Trump made this morning at his press conference.

Today, a few observations about the Great Deplatforming.

One, deplatforming is moving higher up the stack, in part due to employee pressure. I expect to see a lot more of this.… Image
Two, let’s hold social networks accountable for their part in this. But we need to widen our aperture.… Image
And three, the big lie about the stolen election may be the most difficult content moderation problem these networks have ever faced.… Image

Google earned $11.2 billion in profits last quarter and uses all your uploaded photos to train its ML algorithms, which offers it other enormous competitive benefits
Also seems notable that free Google photo storage helped to drive tons of startups out of this market — Everpix, Loom, Ever, Picturelife. Now that they're gone, and Google is tired of losing money on Photos, the revenue switch flips.
I like paying for software generally, and Google Photos is great software. But it's also case of a giant using its infinite resources to reshape the market to its liking and then seeking rents. Not a lot to get excited about there

So: two things.😊

In May, my sources started sharing secret recordings of meetings inside Facebook. Weekly Q&As with Mark Zuckerberg; briefings about civil rights; even Sheryl Sandberg’s annual Q&A with interns.

Today, I’m ready to tell you what I found.…
Facebook employees often want the company to take a harder line against the Trump administration.

But Facebook’s conservative-leaning US user base wants Zuckerberg to do the opposite.

The biggest question inside the company right now is whether it can hold the center.
In journalism, thanks to @jayrosen_nyu, we have a word for this kind of dedication to “neutral” speech policies: “the view from nowhere.”

This is a story about what happens when the world’s biggest media platform adopts that view in the run-up to a historic election.

I’m feeling generous because of Covid-19.

I’ll double any likes sent to this tweet for the next hour. Good luck, and stay safe out there!
Good thing these attackers just wanted to run a Bitcoin scam and not use the exact same methods to start a nuclear war!
Now the scammers have the Apple and Uber accounts. This is an extremely serious breach of Twitter's security systems, and I hope that (1) the company gets it under control ASAP and (2) that there is a full public accounting of how it happened.

Today in The Interface, @evanspiegel talks about Minis, Snap Map, and standing up for the First Amendment. I liked how he framed this:… Image
Also talked with current and former employees about Chris Cox's return. He played this role for a lot of folks over the years at Facebook: Image
Finally, someone sent me Cox's first remarks about returning to Facebook, which he made at today's weekly all-staff Q&A. Image

BREAKING: Chris Cox is returning to Facebook as chief product officer…
Cox left over 'artistic differences' with Zuckerberg — FB's shift to end-to-end encryption. Now he says: "FB and our products have never been more relevant to our future. It’s also the place I know best, and the best place for me to roll up my sleeves and dig in to help. "
He'll over see the Facebook app, Instagram, WhatsApp, Messenger, and marketing. And will presumably resume being a top lieutenant to Zuckerberg and potential future CEO of the company.
