    The Chinese government asked the N.B.A. to fire a team executive who posted on social media in support of pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong, the league’s commissioner, Adam Silver, said on Thursday in his first public appearance in the United States since returning from a contentious trip to Asia. “We said there’s no chance that’s happening,” Silver said. “There’s no chance we’ll even discipline him.” The executive, Daryl Morey, the general manager of the Houston Rockets, set off the international firestorm with a Twitter post using a slogan used by the protesters in Hong Kong, just as the league was...

    The hashtag #BedBugSummit trended on Twitter Friday due to allegations of past infestation at President Trump’s resort in Doral, Fla. The news resurfaced following the announcement that the U.S. will host next year’s Group of Seven (G-7) summit at the Trump property. In the day after White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney told reporters that the 2020 G-7 summit would take place at Trump National Doral, nearly 30,000 tweets had been sent using the hashtag. Holly Figueroa O’Reilly, a songwriter and founder of the Blue Wave Crowdsource — an organization that aims to support Democratic candidates — tweeted...

    Chinese-American actress Liu Yifei has attracted support and brickbats online after voicing support for the Hong Kong police on social media this week amid the city’s anti-government protests. There were calls to boycott Disney’s live-action remake of Mulan , in which she has the title role. The hashtag #BoycottMulan was trending on Twitter on Friday, featuring in more than 21,000 posts. Liu’ s name featured in more than 16,000 posts. On Weibo, China’s equivalent of Twitter, where she has 65.6 million followers, Liu shared a post by People’s Daily, the official newspaper of China’s Communist Party, with the quote “I...
  • Maddow’s latest crystal ball reading: Putin ‘ordered’ Trump to withdraw from Afghanistan

    RT (A Russian Site) ^ | 21 Dec, 2018
    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow – a pioneer of Putin-ate-my-homework journalism – has predictably mused that Donald Trump is considering pulling troops out of Afghanistan on the orders of Russia’s president. The evidence speaks for itself. In segment on her critically-acclaimed show, “Watch Me Scream ‘Russia’ Until I Dislocate My Jaw”, Maddow made an adroit observation of seismic proportions: Reports that Donald Trump is mulling a partial withdrawal from Afghanistan emerged only hours after Vladimir Putin said that the US keeps promising to leave the country but never does! In layman’s terms: Putin ordered Trump to pull troops out of Afghanistan, during...
  • Nancy Pelosi took Trump's tweet about her "meltdown" and made it her Twitter cover photo

    A briefing with congressional leaders at the White House on Wednesday ended with insults, a walkout — and a meme. It was the first face-to-face meeting between President Trump and top Democrats since the impeachment inquiry began, and things got heated between the president and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. The House had just passed a bipartisan resolution condemning Mr. Trump's abrupt decision to pull troops from Syria, and lawmakers were supposed to be discussing the deteriorating military situation there with the president. But top Democrats left the meeting early. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said the president insulted House Speaker...

    The boy Mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey, says mean Twitter messages made him feel like a woman, bringing to mind (for me, anyway) Shania Twain. But let’s set the stage: President Trump planned a major rally at the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis. Frey publicly stated that he would like to bar the president from entering his city, but sadly lacks the power to do so–that pesky Constitution again! He then came up with a clever way to achieve his goal of blocking Trump’s appearance–he sent the Target Center’s management a $530,000 bill for “security.” That didn’t work, and Trump...

    He didn’t even need time to buy a vowel. “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak has spent almost four decades entertaining Americans with a polished affability that makes his game show one of the more relaxing ways to spend a half-hour in front of a television. But on Tuesday night, it took him only three minutes and two tweets to skewer the entire Democratic presidential primary debate.

    Twitter is toying with the idea of auto-deleting old tweets or other methods of addressing users' fears of posting, the company's head of product said on The Verge's podcast, Vergecast. Kayvon Beykpour was responding to one of the podcast's hosts, Casey Newton, suggesting that tweets go private after existing for a year, citing ever-changing "cultural standards." "Fear of speaking in public and fear of retaliation or fear of being harassed and harassment means many different things to many people," Beykpour, who became Twitter's head of product in 2018, replied. "These are some of the biggest reasons why people don’t tweet,"...
  • Twitter will prevent users from retweeting world leaders who break its rules

    Fox News ^ | 10/15/19 | Christopher Carbone
    Twitter will restrict how users can interact with tweets from world leaders who violate its rules. The social media company led by CEO Jack Dorsey said in a Tuesday blog post that it will not allow users to like, reply, share or retweet offending tweets, but it will let users quote-tweet them so they can still express their own opinions. The San Francisco-based company has faced a backlash from critics over its hateful conduct and content moderation policies. Some organizations and users believe it should subject the tweets of leaders like President Trump to the same standards as everyone else...

    So Twitter accused me of: Violating our rules against abuse and harassment. You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. This includes wishing or hoping that someone experiences physical harm. I replied to a Promoted Tweet from Adam Schiff seeking a contribution: @AdamSchiff R U kidding me! The only thing I'll contribute to is the rope to hang you with after your conviction for TREASON. (6:17 PM - 15 Oct 2019) This is my second ban in a month. I meekly accepted the first where I asked, after de Blasio banned...

    Massachusetts Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren is being heavily criticized for failing to vet a high-profile campaign surrogate with a history of making homophobic, racist, misogynistic and xenophobic comments on social media. Activist Ashlee Marie Preston was featured in a Warren campaign video released October 10. In that video, Preston explains that she’s “a Warren Democrat because I am not afraid of the fight.” The video released by Twitter account @TeamWarren is captioned: 🙌@AshleeMPreston is a #WarrenDemocrat, and so are we. Together, we’re fighting so that all women of color have a voice in our democracy.

A video released late Monday contains various clips of CNN President Jeff Zucker exposing an obvious personal...

    It was tech giant Twitter that let the phrase "Die Trump" trend overseas. It was Twitter from which Disney walked away because of its "nastiness extraordinary." It is Twitter that has been accused countless times of shadowbanning or otherwise suppressing the speech of conservatives. (snip) But things may be changing as a result of a judge's decision to allow a $250 million lawsuit brought by Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., against Twitter to go forward. The Federalist reported the case soon could be a "nightmare" for the company. Judge John Marshall, who was assigned the case in Virginia, is considering a...

    On Monday, ABC News got caught lying about having a video allegedly showing Turkish troops slaughtering Kurdish civilians in northern Syria, when, in fact, it was video from a gun range in Kentucky. Seemingly thinking a pair of weak apologies on Twitter were enough, the liberal broadcast network refused to correct the record and inform viewers on their journalistic malpractice during that evening’s World News Tonight. As NewsBusters’s Kristine Marsh reported, Sunday’s World News Tonight teed up the contents of the video as being a product of President Trump’s foreign policy, declaring, “This video right here appearing to be showing...
