Seems like the best way to promote conspiracy theories with impunity and get algorithmically boosted while doing it is to declare yourself a political candidate.

Twitter has banned accounts repping QAnon and the Oathkeepers and this dude is getting promoted with it in his bio.

Whenever companies do this they just prime the pump for the coming story (See: Facebook and the original Cambridge Analytica piece). It just gets everyone in a frenzy to read what's coming out.

I don't know what's in the story and I'll reserve judgment until I read it but I know this: @nathanielpopper  is a phenomenal reporter. He's reported on misbehavior and sexual misconduct at SoFi, which led to changes there. He's a pro.

Complimenting a company for solving your own personal trolley problem is beyond ghoulish. Just disturbing man.

If you really want to know how Walter Huang’s family feels, watch this video after his widow announced a lawsuit against Tesla for wrongful death and broke down last year.

Seeing a lot of ppl posting salads to the TL that worryingly do not look like salads.

Uhhh my dad said some weird stuff on the family Thanksgiving zoom

Kinda stunned at the lack of reaction from traditional US print and tv press about our story. It details an employee with direct allegations of Facebook turning a blind eye toward electoral and political disruption around the world, and it's been crickets.

This is Grimes' mom. Thanksgiving is going to be fun.

This is the most important Facebook story I've ever published:

lmao... the White House/Melania Trump Be Best pamphlet about your kids being online is almost the exact same thing that the FTC published in Jan. 2014: 2014: 2018:

Facebook employees are furious and unloaded on Mark Zuckerberg during an all-hands meeting yesterday over his handling of QAnon and a Kenosha militia page that remained online after a shooting that killed two people. Here's my dispatch from inside:

Facebook users reported the event for militia group, Kenosha Guard, 455 times for violating rules around the incitement of violence. The event asked attendees to bring weapons. Facebook moderators said the event didn't violate any rules.

Elon Musk sent me an email last week. In it, he accused a British cave rescuer of being "a child rapist" who took a "12-year-old bride." He didn't provide any evidence of those claims. He also called me a "fucking asshole."
