    Valerie Plame Wilson is fundraising to buy a controlling share of Twitter so that she can ban President Trump from the social media platform. "From emboldening white supremacists to promoting violence against journalists, his tweets damage the country and put people in harm's way," Wilson wrote on her GoFundMe page. "But threatening actual nuclear war with North Korea takes it to a dangerous new level." Wilson, who was revealed to be a covert CIA operations officer in a 2003 leak, slammed Twitter executives for ignoring calls to enforce the company's own community standards and delete Trump's account. But Wilson's...

    It was just one of those nights for actor James Woods – minding his own business, fighting the good fight for conservative ideals on the Twitter front. Then it came – a full-frontal threat of violence from a guy named Matthew E. Jacob of Manhasset, Long Island. “If I see you in the street I will hit you over the head with a 2 x 4,” he threatened. But Jacob picked a fight with the wrong actor. Woods, best know for his bad-guy roles, took a screenshot of the threat and tweeted it to Twitter Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey,...

    The Hill (MSN) ^ | 08/16/17 | Jacqueline Thomsen
    Former President Obama's tweet sharing a message against racism is officially the most-liked tweet ever. Obama posted a tweet sharing a quote from Nelson Mandela that condemned racism just hours after a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. turned violent. Obama's tweet after Charlottesville becomes the most-liked tweet ever. The tweet became the most popular of all time on Tuesday night, with more than 2.7 million likes, three days after it was posted. "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion..." Obama wrote in the tweet. The tweet...
  • Jeb Bush on Trump Charlottesville statement: 'This is a time for moral clarity, not ambivalence'

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush urged President Trump on Tuesday to act as a voice for "moral clarity" and more forcefully reject racism and hate groups. In a series of tweets, Bush, who once battled Trump for the Republican presidential nomination, said the president should quit parsing blame for the recent violent protests in Charlottesville, Va., on various groups and call instead for unity. This is a time for moral clarity, not ambivalence. 1/3 — Jeb Bush (@JebBush) August 16, 2017 I urge @POTUS to unite the country, not parse the assignment of blame for the events in Charlottesville. 2/3...

    General Kelly took away Trump’s phone? Multiple people close to POTUS told me Kelly “took away his phone,” although I wasn’t able to confirm if they meant this literally or figuratively. Did the President of the United States actually have his phone taken from his physical possession? This struck me as hard to believe, although it was clear the tone and tenor of Trump’s tweets had changed, and the sources who provided me this information had regularly given me massive scoops.

    It’s time to treat Google, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter like public utilities.... Yes, they are private companies, just as many utilities are. And yes, these Internet monopolies do not have the same physical-infrastructure advantages that electric-utility monopolies have. But because of their network effects, their dominance and monopoly power are in many ways even starker. If I don’t like my utility I can put solar panels on my roof and an inverter and battery in my garage, and I can still get power. But if I can’t get access to the 2 billion people on Facebook because Facebook doesn’t like...

    If President Trump feels that Sean Hannity has got his back, there is more evidence to support his sense. In the wake of the Charlottesville attack on demonstrators, the hate really started to flow, and Sean spotted this direct threat to the POTUS in a tweet from someone using the name Lorie Wise, @Lori4040... The tweets were quickly deleted, but screenshots were kept by truthfeed (hat tip: Gateway Pundit): Warning: Strong language.

    Many of the "Tech Gods" were dismayed when Donald Trump - who holds a very different worldview - won the American presidency. But did they actually help him to win? A key insider from the Trump campaign's digital operation - Theresa Wong - unravels for the first time the role played by social media and Facebook's vital role in getting Trump into the White House. Jamie Bartlett learns how Facebook's vast power to persuade was first built for advertisers, combining data about our internet use and psychological insights into how we think.

  • Twitter users are reporting Trump's account for 'threatening violence' against North Korea

    08/11/2017 7:33:07 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 58 replies
    Can a president be suspended from Twitter for threatening to attack another country? That's what some Twitter users, including actor and former Barack Obama aide Kal Penn, are demanding, after President Trump tweeted Friday morning that U.S. "military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely." Critics of the president's tweet say the rhetoric reflects a threat of violence against North Korea that violates Twitter's rules and terms of service. "Seems pretty clear that you can't threaten mass murder via nuclear war, right @twitter? Asking for 7.4 billion friends," tweeted Penn, along with a...

    You actually expect me to read an entire 140 character tweet? Oy! The aggravation! That means putting a tremendous strain on my eyeballs. Just a step away from reading the entire "War and Peace" in one sitting. If you think that was ridiculous, try to pretend that many people won't read an entire tweet as Chris Cillizza did on Friday's New Day on CNN. Cillizza seemed to think that many people will focus only on the "locked and loaded" part of President Trump's August 11 tweet and ignore the rest of it, (which puts that term entirely into context.)
  • The mystery and intrigue of Matt Drudge's Twitter feed

    On Oct. 11, 2015, @DRUDGE went dark. Gone was the profile picture (dark sunglasses, cowboy hat), expelled was the playful header image of two parrots preening. All that remained was a black square and a black header and the capital letters that bellowed his name: MATT DRUDGE. Just days earlier, the reclusive and powerful founder of the Drudge Report had appeared on Alex Jones' InfoWars program, although "appeared" might be too generous. Despite Jones' pleading, Drudge refused to actually come on camera for the interview. Eventually, Jones' team convinced Drudge to speak into a microphone just out of the frame,...

    The Greatest Twitter Account EverPosted: 15th February 2013 by Taxi Hack in Uncategorized 1 I was reluctant to get on Twitter… I’m really busy, and I just don’t have time to pay attention to the moronic missives of talentless rappers or some vapid celebutard’s most recent yeast infection. Seriously… if you aren’t banging Kim Kardashian, why would you give a rat’s ass about anything she has to say? But on the other hand, I find that I do like reading the tweets of other hacks… misery loves company, I suppose. But most of all, I enjoy Twitter accounts that...

    Project Description Since 2012, we have been investigating the use of algorithms, automation and computational propaganda in public life. Political bots are manipulating public opinion over major social networking applications. This project enables a new team of social and information scientists to investigate the impact of automated scripts, commonly called bots, on social media. We study both the bot scripts and the people making such bots, and then work with computer scientists to improve the way we catch and stop such bots. Experience suggests that political bots are most likely to appear during an international crisis, and are usually designed...

    President Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump, on Friday accused Twitter of censoring one of his tweets. In a tweet on Friday, the president's son tweeted out a screenshot of a tweet posted earlier on Friday that read “Jobs Jobs Jobs!!!” followed by several American flag emojis. The tweet also retweeted another user's tweet that included a Drudge Report link about Friday's jobs report. Eric Trump's tweet was hidden for some viewers behind a standard Twitter warning, which was depicted in the screenshot. The grey warning box reads: “This tweet is not available because it includes potentially sensitive content.” “Why are...
