    Tom Llamas is not the hero Houston needs right now, according to how some of his dispatches were received on Tuesday morning. The ABC News reporter, using the #BREAKING hashtag, told his followers that he saw “looting” taking place at a supermarket in the northeast part of the city, an area grappling with catastrophic floods and supply shortages. And that there was a dead body nearby. In that order. He was immediately met with a heavy dose of internet WTF:

    In the eleven years since Twitter revolutionised the way we use social media, it's been both used and abused by its one billion users. It's helped mobilise revolutions such as the Arab Spring, and it can break huge news stories long before mainstream media are on the scene. Then again, it's also routinely and inadvisably used by the 45th President of the United States , not to mention all the glorious celebrity Twitter spats. But it's not just public figures who attract attention on the Twittersphere with their antics. Regular people regularly attract adversity too. Take this lady for instance....

    Chelsea Clinton really stepped in it on Saturday when she tweeted a Washington Post essay from someone who spent a year in Joe Arpaio’s infamous Maricopa County jail. Only problem was, Clinton tweeted the story headline without quotes, making it read as if she was saying that she spent a year in Arpaio’s jail. “The year I spent in Joe Arpaio’s tent jail was hell. He should never walk free,” the tweet said with a link to the Post essay. The essay details the horrors that Francisco Chairez faced while he was in Arpaio’s jail for a drunk driving conviction....

    Sorry if this is a rerun. I did a search and zip-nada. Remember Valerie Plame Wilson? She’s the former CIA agent who got outed by Richard Armitage in the lead up to the Iraq war. She seems to be looking for a return to the media spotlight with her latest scheme to silence President Trump on Twitter. Her plan is to raise $1 billion dollars to buy a controlling share of the social media platform and then kick Trump off. Her GoFundMe page, which has so far raised about $3,000, says this is necessary to prevent nuclear war with North...

    The ACLU has apologized for perpetuating “white supremacy” after some on Twitter took offense to a tweet featuring a white baby. In a tweet on Wednesday, the ACLU posted a photo of a child wearing a “free speech” onesie with the text, “This is the future that ACLU members want”: Instead of noticing the shirt the baby was wearing, some people immediately took offense to the tweet including a white baby: Anthropologist Michael Oman-Reagan suggested he would rather have a future featuring black characters from science fiction films: In response to the uproar, the ACLU thanked its Twitter follows for...

    Valerie Plame Wilson, the undercover CIA operations officer unmasked in July 2003, wants to buy a controlling share of Twitter. Her reason for doing so is to prevent President Trump from using the social media platform.Plame Wilson was an undercover operative specializing in weapons of mass destruction for the CIA before influential columnist Robert D. Novak exposed her and her husband, Joseph Wilson. Plame Wilson had previously been critical of then President George W. Bush’s statements about Iraq’s purchase of nuclear weapons-grade uranium and accused members of the Bush administration of conspiring to destroy her career by breaking a 1982...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Aug 21, 2017, 9:56 PM | Naomi Lim |
    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,...

    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.
