Wow, that email pitching a recurring mask subscription service sure was demoralizing.

Banger from @HowellONeill: NSO was about to sell hacking tools to France. Now it’s in crisis. https://t.co/03a5pmOuld

Great, scoopy story from @_KarenHao laying out how Facebook and Google effectively fund misinformation by paying millions of ad dollars to clickbait farms all around the world, often hosted on their own platforms https://t.co/mJwjnCHrGl

The technology that's enabling the ransomware epidemic may be new, but extortion and ransom are not. In this new podcast series with @propublica, we look at the money, technology and people behind these attacks. 🎧 SUBSCRIBE however you get podcasts: https://t.co/NL5PMh5Gje

See that test on left? That’s what you’ve been buying, from Abbott, for about $25/pack After early approval from FDA & thus few competitors, it has 75% of market. See that test on right? It’s *the same test* by Abbott Just packaged for Europe—where it sells for $4

Here's @ceodonovan's investigation into Edgenuity from last month, which found that its remote learning software often left kids falling behind & feeling abandoned: https://t.co/ksC34YkuF1

Nothing in here seems particularly damning (60 hour workweeks when a huge deal was closing, Slack messages sent at night). This might be what VCpills me https://t.co/t6dLAFmNl0

Is watching the 1984 Ghostbusters movie killing people? Recent data show death rate of 10-59yr olds who have watched the 1984 Ghostbuster Movie is 2x higher than those who have watched the 2021 Ghostbuster movie I don't know how to explain this other than movie-caused mortality

Nothing like watching 15 hours of water rights hearings to be pretty certain that California is doomed.

Maybe we should stop listening to people who "have been fighting for Affordable Housing in San Francisco for 40 years." Seems they've fucked up!

I read this last night, and I recommend it. Journalists and scholars produce a lot of work about Facebook, and like the platform itself it can be exhausting. This one is more revealing and quite accessible, whether you follow the ongoing debates or not. https://t.co/4fPJ4ToTzw

They've had months to review my findings, days to review Karen's. As of 21 November 2021, there are still at least 28 pages managed by Cambodian actors pushing out disinformation content into Myanmar. Content of the day? All highly political disinformation.

This story is a must read. But for me it's also very much a reminder that we cannot trust authorities--yes including states--to define what is truth. https://t.co/6xA4x73zJZ

The most frustrating aspect of fighting disinformation over the last 5 years has been how much of it ties back to actors whose income come directly from @Google and @Facebook. We’ve dubbed it ‘platform-sponsored disinformation’ in our work / thread https://t.co/C9yvdOxgWp

Just to say: you wouldn’t believe how thorough Karen is when she does these stories. Watertight doesn’t even do it justice. That’s why they’re so powerful. https://t.co/A2tqULS28p

Intent and attribution are of course important and influence how you try to counter an actor. But if the output is the same, the effect on the audience is being multiplied.

An important point. I used to have a slide where I asked people to identify which content came from Macedonian spammers, which came from the Russian IRA, and which was from US hyperpartisan publishers. The challenge was that it all looked exactly the same. https://t.co/KvjJTWzzQ3
