  • Twitter culls fake followers, Democrats hardest hit

    American Thinker ^ | 14 Jul, 2018 | Monica Showalter
    Twitter announced it would be culling the platform's fake followers. It makes good business sense to do this, because fake followers on an individual account distort the influence ratings for advertisers, meaning that accounts full of fakes are a money-losing proposition for Twitter's real, paying customers. If an account has fake followers, it looks more influential than it really is. Well, guess what: there is an extraordinarily high number of Democrats, the kind who draw lots of media hype, with puffed up "it" status, loaded with fake followers. I checked with this site called TwitterAudit here. Some of these accounts,...

    Top public policy officials from Facebook, Twitter and Alphabet's YouTube division are set to testify before Congress on Tuesday to determine whether the companies were politically motivated in filtering content on their platforms. GOP Congressmembers have taken aim at the social media giants for what they have charged are politically biased practices in the content each site chooses to remove. The companies have denied such claims. The companies will send their top public policy officials to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, including Facebook’s head of global policy, Monika Bickert; YouTube’s head of global public policy and government relations Juniper...
  • Feud erupts between Dem socialist Ocasio-Cortez and defeated Rep. Joe Crowley

    So much for Democrats coming together in New York’s 14th congressional district. A feud erupted Thursday on Twitter between Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and outgoing Democratic Rep. Joseph Crowley -- the longtime congressman Ocasio-Cortez shockingly defeated in New York’s primaries last month. The victor claimed the incumbent is now mounting a third-party bid. “.@repjoecrowley stated on live TV that he would absolutely support my candidacy,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Thursday. “Instead, he’s stood me up for all 3 scheduled concession calls.” The 28-year-old progressive Democrat added: “Now, he’s mounting a 3rd party challenge against me and the Democratic Party- and against the...
  • Obama loses more than 2 million Twitter followers amid crackdown

    Former President Obama lost more than 2 million followers on Twitter this week as the social platform removed inactive and locked accounts from follower counts, according to a preliminary review by The Hill. Obama, who had 104 million Twitter followers prior to the crackdown, had roughly 101 million as of Thursday afternoon. Still, the former president remains the third most-followed person on the platform behind Katy Perry and Justin Bieber. President Trump, who had 53.4 million Twitter followers before the platform began pulling accounts from follower lists this week, had 53.1 million followers as of Thursday afternoon. Trump remains the...

Wow, but is anybody really surprised! Together with her lover, FBI Agent Peter Strzok, she worked on the Rigged Witch Hunt, perhaps the most tainted and corrupt case EVER!______ Donald J. Trump Jr. tweeted later: Based on what was going on there I’m reasonably sure that’s not a typo.
  • Did Shannon Watts Just Admit Gun Control Is Unconstitutional?

    bearingarms.com ^ | 7/11/2018 | Tom Knighton
    Shannon Watts gets a little unhinged when it comes to guns. We all know that. She sees an individual’s right to keep and bear arms as something that should pretty much be abolished, and anyone who disagrees with her is a target of her scorn…when they’re not being blocked on Twitter, at least. With the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, she has yet another excuse to spew her bile all over social media. In the process, she may have made a bit of a slip-up.

    Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) on Monday said a restaurant gave him free food because the owner "appreciated" what he was doing in his fight against President Trump's "zero tolerance" immigration policy. "My experience at restaurants: I ordered take out at a Greek restaurant," Lieu tweeted. "When I arrived, the owner saw me & threw in a free baklava (one of my favorite desserts). He said he appreciated what I was doing. I guess that's what happens when one opposes ripping kids away from parents." Lieu's tweet comes as he and many other lawmakers are pressuring the Trump administration to reunite...

    The failing NY Times Fake News story today about breast feeding must be called out. The U.S. strongly supports breast feeding but we don’t believe women should be denied access to formula. Many women need this option because of malnutrition and poverty.

    Huffington Post ^ | 7/08/18 | Mary Papenfuss
    It what may be an early onslaught of Kremlin-linked Twitter attacks ahead of the U.S. midterm elections, Russia bots appear to be fueling a wave of criticism against Democrats in part over a lack of “civility” and intimidation in political confrontations, according to bot trackers. Attacks with the hashtag #WalkAway purport to be from a “grassroots” wave of one-time Democrats who have left the party in part because they say they are so incensed by the hateful and divisive behavior of party members. The message is to “walk away” from ugly confrontations, “intolerance” and hate — and from the Democratic...

    Washington Post ^ | July 6 2018 | Craig Timberg and Elizabeth Dwoskin
    Twitter has sharply escalated its battle against fake and suspicious accounts, suspending more than 1 million a day in recent months, a major shift to lessen the flow of disinformation on the platform, according to data obtained by The Washington Post. The rate of account suspensions, which Twitter confirmed to The Post, has more than doubled since October, when the company revealed under congressional pressure how Russia used fake accounts to interfere in the U.S. presidential election. Twitter suspended more than 70 million accounts in May and June, and the pace has continued in July, according to the data. The...

    President Trump on Saturday floated the idea of Twitter dumping major national news publications including The New York Times and The Washington Post as the social media platform removes "fake" accounts. "Twitter is getting rid of fake accounts at a record pace. Will that include the Failing New York Times and propaganda machine for Amazon, the Washington Post, who constantly quote anonymous sources that, in my opinion, don’t exist," Trump tweeted. "They will both be out of business in 7 years!

    Hollywood stars took to social media to send messages of doom, gloom, and resistance to President Donald Trump in honor of Independence Day. “To every country on the 4th of July. We’re sorry about our president. He doesn’t reflect all of our views — and we hope you know that the majority of us are ashamed,” wrote former Netflix talk show host Chelsea Handler. “We will rally each other and come back to the world one step at a time. #novemberiscoming #alsosorryabouthotdogs.” Left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore offered a politically-charged message to his six million Twitter followers, “Happy Resistance Day!...

    William Shatner is among those who find the ALSC’s decision utterly ridiculous. William Shatner ✔ @WilliamShatner Did you hear about the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award being renamed over negative lines on the indigenous people of America? Laura changed the lines in the 50’s. I find it disturbing that some take modern opinion & obliterate the past. Isn’t progress @ learning from our mistakes?🤔
