[Interrupts beautiful tropical vacation to share the following:]

A handful of men in adtech are planning to get rich off selling the data of any woman attempting to secure an abortion directly to law enforcement.

Here are faces of the men behind @SafeGraph.

1. @auren Image
2. @bokelley

Brian O’Kelley previously founded @AppNexus and prides himself on being the first ad exchange to drop Breitbart.

Now, he’s a major investor in a co that will help law enforcement “catch” women seeking medical care & abortions. Image
3. @JoeZawadzki

Joe founded @mediamath, famously known as “Math Media.” He probably got rich off of that, and will now get rich off of selling out women who have no idea they’re being tracked and personally identified when they visit @PPFA. Image
4. @rickerwin

The man behind this peachy grin is CEO of @adstradata. It’s unclear how much he invested in @SafeGraph but he too, stands to make a lot of cash off the enforcement of the nationwide abortion ban. Image
This is not @auren’s first rodeo when it comes to fucking up the lives of American citizens. His previous company @LiveRamp played a key role in Cambridge Analytica’s work in 2020.

Alexander Nix said so himself in his talk at a marketing conference in 2017. 👇🏼 Image
5. @mrkeiser

Matt Keizer is the CEO of @LiveIntent. Matt wins in two ways: first as a @SafeGraph investor and second bc @LiveIntent monetizes every last piece of hateful and misogynist @dailywire puts out.

A super asshole, if you will. Image
6. @mikedfresh

Mike Derezin used to run things at @LinkedIn and now does something something crypto. Of course he’s invested in a company that plans to destroy the lives of women seeking safe medical treatment. Image
7. @tod

Tod Sacerdoti is former CEO of @brightroll and a self-declared “#girldad.” As a @SafeGraph investor, he will ensure his daughter and her peers could be pursued by law enforcement and sent to prison for attempting to access safe abortions. Image
8. @donn_rappaport

Donn Rappaport is former CEO at @adstradata & current board member of @KidSafe.

As an investor in @SafeGraph, he will make an enormous amount of money from ensuring women cannot access safe abortions. Image
9. @aretraasdahl

Are Traasdahl is former CEO of an adtech co called @Tapad and now runs a food supply chain tech co called @Go_Crisp.

He is a @SafeGraph investor, a Norwegian — and stands to profit handsomely from American women losing our right to choose. Image
I am now going to a yoga class. You can find a full list of @SafeGraph investors here. 👇🏼

I see a lot of social media platforms heavily positioning themselves as “social justice” or “pro-democracy” Twitter alternatives.

But whoever builds a platform that has a good UI w/ discoverable content will win.
This may be an unpopular opinion, but I’ll take the hit.

Most people don’t want a “social justice” Twitter. Including me. We want a fun place to hang out, blow off steam and consume a variety of content from the ppl we follow, and the ppl THEY follow.
Every successful social media platform today focused on gaining users first, and culture developed over time.

Initial traction comes from fulfilling a core user desire.

Here on Twitter, that desire = to consume & share a shitton of interesting & timely content quickly.

So far on this call, El*n says:

•We will ban impersonators and keep their $8
•Eventually impersonators will stop making accounts bc losing $ is a disincentive
•I have a lot of faith in humanity, most people are good

???
Elon’s take on brand safety:

•I want to get rid of the “bad” content
•Something something “more relevant ads”
•I don’t want things on here that are not funny or entertaining

He’s really uh, tweeting thru it, so to speak.
“An immense step change to what it has been. I’m a technologist and I can make technology go fast, so that’s what you’ll be seeing..”

As @reckless has said, this man genuinely does not understand that he is head of an ad sales company.

NEW: Since last night, @magnite (ad exchange) has been blocking hundreds of emails from @CheckMyAdsHQ members asking them about their new @foxnews partnership.

But how? We all have different email addresses.
This morning, I tested out some keywords to figure out whether Magnite had shut down its support email (globalsupport@magnite.com) or if it’s just blocking our people.

All these emails went through just fine.
Then I plugged in an excerpt of @magnite’s content policy and BINGO.

Magnite is blocking anyone that cites their own policy back to them.

Wow! How sobering to know that the entire global disinformation crisis is single-handedly produced and financed by @GoogleAds.

This breathtaking @propublica investigation shows us exactly how uncomplicated this is.
propublica.org/article/google…
IMO, this @propublica story is the only story that matters: @GoogleAds — not Facebook — is actively financing the end of democracy around the world.

Yes, FB amplifies content, but @Google direct deposits 68¢ on every ad $ to these disinformation outlets. These publishing partners range from major news outlets such
Like, let me get more specific here: @Google doesn't merely host harmful and dangerous content.

They have bank account details for these disinformation operatives and effectively PAY them to continue producing this content, demonetizing only an article here & there.

We’re off to the races! @kfranasz says log files are indispensable to holding adtech partners accountable.

It’s the only source of truth in this crazy ad world.
@kfranasz reminds us that ad measurement fails us.

For example, Gannett told advertisers for years they were running ads on USA Today - but they were really running on a bunch of local sites. (Not what they paid for!)
Log files help fill in the blanks on what Google Ads labels in ad placements as “unknown.”

Btw “Unknown” is the #2 placement on this $1M ad campaign! Where are these ads actually running??

Since we’re talking about Alex Jones, I’m currently watching Infowars on my @Roku.

Roku officially blocked Infowars from its platform in 2019. How did he get back on again? @RokuSupport
The answer is @KlowdTelevision, a free streaming channel owned and operated by “Unlinked Corporation” which you can download for free on your Roku.
Un-Linked Corporation is owned by Robert Herring, who also owns Herring Networks.

This is the parent company of @OANN.
