I got up at 6am yesterday. Shortly before going to bed last night, #Efail broke. Since then I've been deluged in messages from very scared people who have wanted and needed to hear things are not as bad as they're being made out to be. 1/
I am literally hallucinating from sleep deprivation. I'm still here. Still answering DMs, emails, Google Hangout messages, Signal messages, more. I'm talking to journalists who are trying to get another take.

I am *exhausted*. 2/
This is why responsible disclosure is so necessary. Irresponsible disclosure terrifies people. It might be good for clicks and pageviews, but we all pay the price for it in lost sleep. 3/
Werner was approached once by the #Efail authors late last year. He was given no advance notice this bomb was going to drop. The #Efail authors didn't even give him a preprint. Someone gave him a redacted copy a while ago, but not the #Efail authors or the EFF. 4/
I didn't see a redacted copy until two days ago, when an anonymous source gave me one. Until that moment I had no idea any of this was coming. 5/
I don't know why this release was so bungled. All I know is it was not responsible. Maybe it was a comedy of errors, maybe it was deliberate. I don't know. You probably don't, either. Let's not assume the worst. 6/
Let's just do better, and demand better. Responsible disclosure is important. It matters. 7/7 (fin)
