Tonight was without doubt the greatest @pan_quake delivery meeting so far

Thrilled to be able to announce so many new features & updates within a single event.

Check out all the details in the below thread. Event video will be published in the final tweet


As usual, we kicked it off by reviewing the updated campaign statistics for the last 4 weeks.

Huge news that THANKS TO YOU! we now have 4 full time development contractors & 1 part time paid contractor working very hard daily to deliver this groundbreaking next gen product

Remember last month when we announced 3 new marketing projects? We've delivered on all 3.

The first short thematic vid premiered at the end of the event & will be up on Instagram & other social media shortly.

Goodies page is live on site

Shop merchandise catalog follows

Huge shout out to @MeanPanduh for all her awesome graphic design work and to @_taylorhudak for her work compiling this incredible array of products that will be available next month from the @pan_quake shop!!

T-shirts, sweaters, hoodies, coffee mugs, umbrellas...

We'll also have notebooks, folders, baseball caps, tote bags, wall art, buttons & even mouse pads.

And if there's something else you'd like to buy let us know by emailing us at

We will do our best to expand the range to encompass your wishes!

OK here's where the thread starts getting increasingly geekier and geekier.

First up - for the convenience of many inquirers, we have built a new "Tech" section on our website.

In it, you'll find all our publicly released tech slides to date with descriptions & videos

The screenshots above don't really do it justice so I suggest going to to check it out for yourself. There is mountains of content. So everything anyone could want to know about the tech under the hood of @pan_quake can now find it all in one place.

Next up, front end build progress. We are signing off the FINAL(!) front end screen designs down to every last tiny detail. Super exciting. Showed some (deliberately old) versions of front end use cases & workflows as per Feb delivery. You'll understand why very shortly.

April production metrics reference 4 use case diagrams & 2 class diagrams. These are NEW back end design docs - not the aforementioned front end use cases. Organisation of Data & Methods scheduled to be completed by May 5th. Team producing 4-7 *MAJOR* Git commits per day.

Presented deliberately dated/obscured (for IP protection purposes as still in development) examples of back end documentation being produced by our build team ongoing.

This level of documentation is of the highest commercial standard & aligns with industry best practices

We chose to release these examples of our back end architectural work to demonstrate how high the quality of @pan_quake devs are

Only an incompetent person counts build progress in lines of code. Code should be concise, minimalistic, portable, modular & THOROUGHLY PLANNED

Commercial development teams that just sit down & write some code & then brag about how many lines of code they have are the teams that still don't have a workable product after five years. Viable projects with smart, seasoned devs spend the first 40% of dev phase designing

The production of professional grade use case diagrams, class diagrams, sequence diagrams & other types of UML/DB modelling etc provides a solid build foundation and reduces coding time, decreases coding error, and increases the code efficiency & cohesiveness dramatically

Last month you heard from our COO, our Support Manager & our Accounts Administrator. This month we presented a first person testimony from @pan_quake's lead developer about what's really going on with the build & how they feel about the project & the team.

Insightful read

A number of our Community have been emailing us tech questions in the past month & we wanted to be very transparent about our answers to those questions for the benefit of all. So @seanodiggity & I did a Q+A together providing info about all of these user-submitted topics:

Panquake's record is clear: we show up every single month & we never miss a delivery. I don't know of a single other commercial tech project - ever - that has been as transparent about their build process or business as we are. Honest actors will acknowledge & applaud that

How fast we ship each of our app releases depends on you. It is the potent combination of our skills & your advocacy & financial support that has got us this far. We are deeply grateful & committed to seeing this through. Our success is your freedom:

And with the above thread complete, here is the hot-off-the-press video of @pan_quake's 3rd monthly public delivery event, as promised.

Would love to hear your thoughts and feedback!

Your chance at social media liberation is under threat

@Pan_quake endorsers, donors, supporters & staff are being sent a document full of audacious lies to attempt to break trust & derail development

I'm live-blogging a debunking of the lies here:…

On the surface, I'm the target of the lies but in truth, we all are.

Because I am live-blogging my response, please periodically update the page to see new content. It may take several hours to complete. Once finished, I will present the key evidences in the below thread.

OK, here we go. The article is finished - for now - and here is the tl;dr thread as promised.

How to become a beloved mainstream liberal politician:

1. Smile no matter what you're saying
2. Embrace Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, & every other war criminal you meet
3. Secretly facilitate US-led drone bombing "missions" & kill POC daily

4. Use "diversity" as a cover for reinforcing the military industrial complex & your business-as-usual (ie. killing for $$) stance
5. Spend tens of millions of dollars of public money on PR campaigns to teach people how great you are, then celebrate your greatness at every chance
6. Advance "total awareness" intelligence agency agendas, violating your citizen's homes, schools, workplaces, vehicles, streets with ubiquitous spying hardware & software at a level that would put China to shame
7. Make your citizenry a police force, turning them upon each other

THREAD: What did the @Pan_Quake community learn at tonight's 2nd monthly public delivery meeting?

(The full event video will be posted at the bottom of this thread!)


First: updated campaign statistics

Only 4 weeks on, we've had a 50% increase in donations, a 30% increase in donors, 4 new campaign updates posted, 6 new media appearances and some very dodgy and untrustworthy new follow stats from big tech that may or may not be accurate!

Second: more techy geeky stuff

You may remember from last month, we'd completed our use cases, workflows, & mockups.

This month we've been mapping our application properties: the objects, methods & data structures that our code will reference & which define our application

BIG THREAD: When a self-professed "disinformation specialist" turns out to in fact be a specialist in circulating disinformation.

I was surprised at how many people failed to scratch below the surface of @davetroy's semi-recent yet widely circulated pontificating about QAnon

Many people know that I was among the first people in the world to call out QAnon for the giant scam/psyop that it is.

I called it out in a now famous & epically long thread that I wrote in May 2018.

That thread was picked up & amplified by Julian Assange & WikiLeaks.

My thread calling out QAnon for a psyop and warning people not to fall for it was not only written while I was living in Russia, but was widely circulated by many Occupy-related activists & WikiLeaks supporters.

Why? Because we knew QAnon was bullshit & were warning people

Multiple times now, my account or my organisational accounts have been locked out or suspended & I've been able to get others to make enough noise about it to get it fixed in a day

That's a privilege. Millions don't have it. Millions are locked out permanently & lose everything
I actually lost a ton of my photojournalism & event coverage (years worth) when @OccupyNZ was arbitrarily suspended without reason. Likewise, we lost a huge piece of activism history when @OccupyAuckland was suspended years earlier.

Arbitrary suspensions really are book burning
It's the digital equivalent of someone saying "I didn't like your behaviour today so I'm going to set all of your personal photo albums and your home movie collection on fire and I'm not actually going to tell you what you did that made me do this to you. Don't like it? Too bad."

Wow. This better be a mistake.

@Twitter appears to have SUSPENDED all of the official #PanQuake Twitter accounts.

Including @Pan_Quake, @PanQuaked, @PQSupport, @PanQuakeDev and @PanQuakePeople

If deliberate, this is proof of anti-competitive, monopolistic behaviour by Twitter
@Twitter @Pan_Quake @PanQuaked @PQSupport @PanQuakeDev @PanQuakePeople In US govt hearings, when asked whether @Twitter & @Facebook were monopolies, @jack & Zuckerberg claimed to both support and WANT competing services to be launched

The suspension of #PanQuake better be reversed very quickly, or it would be proof that those claims were hollow
