Is a text message the only thing standing between a criminal & your money? Time to level up. ✅Use an app (e.g. Google Authenticator) ✅Get some physical keys (e.g. #YubiKey) If your provider doesn't offer it... Threaten to take your biz elsewhere. https://t.co/cbQ3jbxbn3

If you aren't thinking about how to defeat an inevitable DeSantis run, you're planning for the wrong game.

Is the full context that Musk requested suspensions?

I used to think battery compartments were hopelessly retro. But I just spent 30 minutes hunting a cable to charge something made when Obama was president. Now I'm not so sure.

"Direct request from Elon Musk." Leaked screenshot suggests #Musk personally directed suspension of left wing activist. ...and suspensions of journalists covering him were directed by his deputy. Of course. By @daveyalba & @KurtWagner8 https://t.co/qkQYyRcOTH

Little evidence of crimes prevented with #Pegasus, lots of evidence of abuse. @coe @CommissionerHR @Dunja_Mijatovic says it's "virtually unimaginable" that such mercenary spyware could be used in accordance with EU🇪🇺 law & legal protections. https://t.co/cs4bgsQNeq

Lawmakers are taking a stronger stand on spyware like NSO Group's #Pegasus? Why? Simple, they are in the crosshairs. Great piece by @PeterGuest 1/ https://t.co/fEONNYtcar

Meta just reinstated Trump's Facebook & Instragram. The most powerful thing you can do is NOT play into his rage farming. Don't engage his content, don't re-share it. https://t.co/INFNAuoatj

APPALLING: In 2021, the #UK 🇬🇧 helped Putin ally & sanctioned supervillain #Prigozhin sue @EliotHiggins of @bellingcat. The #UK continues to let its libel system be used to suppress the truth. What an embarrassment. By @shaunwalker7 https://t.co/KHg5jxePrp

UPDATE: Twitter just suspended Fuentes. I think #Musk is testing how far he can push the extremist envelope. Too much pushback and & Twitter backs off. Good. Let's keep it up. https://t.co/fvuoIwORrF

The @BBC documented Modi's role in India's deadly 2002 riots. India pressured Twitter to take it down. They complied. Even blocked some @johncusack tweets in the bargain. Welcome to #Musk's Twitter. I expect this is only the beginning. By @neuwaves https://t.co/cULIeGzj55

There is a concerted effort to put new paint on old homophobic tropes. The harm caused will last for years. And that's the goal. Glad to see the @ADL engaging with @glaad to investigate. https://t.co/ARSRoB2DbN

#Pence's case confirms the obvious: former officials can be sloppy about classified documents. This is probably widespread. This is a Bad Thing. This is sadly not remotely shocking. The reason Trump is different? He refused to return them.

#ElonMusk just restored white supremacist & virulent anti-semite Nick Fuentes. I considered including video to show how bad he is. But I'm holding off. His comments on women, jewish people etc are poison. Just know, Musk is giving Fuentes a huge revenue gift.👇 https://t.co/80383bxqn0

Twitter, I need a plot twist in the next hour. A scammer pretending to be the boss is trying to trick an organization's staff into buying him gift cards... So I concocted a fake story to take him for a ride. What should happen next?

☎️"We are currently experiencing greater than normal call volumes." Translation: we chronically understaff our call center(s). ☎️"Please listen carefully as our menu options have changed." Translation: we forgot to remove this 6 months ago.

I bet #GeorgeSantos "reduced" some dogs. But Quote Tweeting tells Twitter's algorithms to reward him. Expanding his reach. Screenshot instead. Remember: Quote tweet friends, screenshot enemies.

Former 2022 #GOP House candidate @SolomonPena2022 was arrested for at least *six* shootings at homes of NM Democratic politicians. Final tweets: he refused to concede & was "researching my options."

🇬🇷#Greek data protection authorities fined the mercenary spyware firm at center of #GreekWatergate scandal... ...50k Euros. For non-cooperation. Unfortunately this isn't even a slap on the wrist for Intellexa. More of a gentle breeze. Story: https://t.co/GastGS8FRY

This suggests that accounts that were part of influence operations would be eligible for amnesty. Do you intend to allow such accounts back onto Twitter? https://t.co/FE4EVQWj5P

My latest. Black journalists knew from the jump that the end game of the CRT panic was to justify legalizing anti-Black efforts. Florida and DeSantis are showing us what was under their *ahem* hoods this entire time. https://t.co/3dtnSB0lXu

Living in a country with more than *400,000,000* guns is basically like living in a village littered with unexploded land mines. Predictably, and regularly, they will end up doing exactly what they were designed to do.

Devastating news that my friend Thulani Maseko was shot and killed He was a legendary Swazi human rights defender, seeking truth and justice in a corrupt and repressive kingdom His assassination is a stark reminder of the price that people pay for freedom worldwide 🇸🇿

1/ #HRF mourns the death of prominent journalist & human rights defender John Williams Ntwali, the last remaining voice of the free press in #Rwanda. His death is considered suspicious given he was in the regime's crosshairs for his journalistic work. https://t.co/i1OJF1TeIn

The Greek Data Protection Authority finds evidence that 20 phones have been targeted with #Predator. Note that the use of #Spyware is illegal in all circumstances. I have requested a hearing of @EP_PegaInquiry with the Greek DPA and ADAE at the shortest possible notice. https://t.co/vSG4WyG5i3

My investigation uncovered that the U.S. government is conducting mass surveillance on domestic and international money transfers. Now, I’m calling on the DOJ to open an investigation into this practice and its impact on Americans’ rights. https://t.co/J6cedcORM0

Israel's Cognyte won a tender in 2020 to sell an intercept to Myanmar state telco MPT. The deal happened even though lsrael claimed it stopped defence technology transfers to Myanmar following a 2017 ruling by its Supreme Court. Story with @poppymcp 1/x https://t.co/0pvU85KKzh
