It is quite odd that a public person in the media who is planning on running for office with the Democrats can have people suspended on Twitter. It simply highlights Twitter’s inability to prove a fair social media platform for speech.
Brianna Wu, a democratic operative (perhaps planning run in 2018) has that back channel access to Twitter Safety and Support and has threatened to have people suspended for tweeting her.
The alt right formed after democrat activists, such as Brianna Wu and Randi Lee Harper, on the political left were able to conduct attacks on consumers utilizing twitter and were not appropriately dealt with by Twitter safety and support.
The genesis of the alt right is gamergate, which became a big deal when Democrat activists Brianna Wu and Randi Lee Harper began attacking journalist Milo Yiannopoulis for his coverage of Anita Sarkeesian and related issues commonly referred to as #gamergate.
Brianna had previously declared support of ethics in journalism a “bullshit agenda” in her initial tweet, since deleted.
Twitter’s own general council wrote a Washington Post Op-Ed that brought the abuse problem on twitter to public consciousness entitled,
Twitter executive: Here’s how we’re trying to stop abuse while preserving free speech
Brianna Wu, who has met with Representative Mark K Clark in DC and Randi Lee Harper are the two most sustainably abusive people on twitter that I am aware of.
Randi Lee Harper boasts of “having people in Congress” and has been pictured with Rep Clark at SXSW 2016.
Their 2015 appearance was cancelled in 2015 and reset for 2016.
Brianna boasts of having backchannel access to twitter to have people suspended and Randi Lee Harper has met with twitter safety in early 2015 and also boasts of being able to “make queries” of twitter safety and support.
Brianna also boasts of leading a mob of 50,000 to “swarm” people.
Even as the people they give backchannel access to threaten the tech industry with congressional subpoenas should they obtain office.
Brianna Wu and Randi Lee Harper themselves have mainstreamed abuse.
So how did Twitter, as king of Fake news impact our democracy?
When Women Against Media studied abuse on twitter they found that only .66% of abuse was gamergate related.
Rather than correct the record, and protect their business and consumers Twitter has allowed Randi Lee Harper and Brianna Wu to weave a fake #news narrative that equated gamergate (Twitter customers) to terrorists.
Now Brianna Wu equates the Trump presidency to gamergate. Even as she Jack and Randi Lee Harper are massively responsible for the election of Donald Trump through the power of influence on Twitter.
They are that horrid that people who never organized before organized to stop their abuse of others.
Randi Lee Harper has propagated ISIS on Twitter, and Brianna Wu refers to herself as the ISIS of feminism.
I agree, they are virtual terrorists, and Jack Dorsey refused to control their abuse of his consumers.
Why are they privileged to abuse consumers?
So how did Randi Lee Harper and Brianna Wu help cost Bernie Sanders the nomination and give the Democrats unelectable Hillary Clinton as a candidate?
They started attacking male Democrats. Not just with facts, but with vicious character assasinations typical of their prior attacks on Milo Yiannopoulis.
In fact, Randi Lee Harper attacked Bernie supporters for payment.
Nieman Labs reports that…
In light of Trump’s sometimes outlandish communication practices, it’s possible that a portion of his social media public has followed him to check on the latest outrageous post rather than because they support his candidacy. However, engagement metrics also show the much greater success achieved by Trump’s strategy.
yet the abuse of Sanders supporters piled on by them by Randi Lee Harper and Brianna Wu with Jack’s tacit approval (honestly telling people to light themselves on fire and leading abuse mobs isn’t suspension worthy?) converted enough to Trump voters to squeak out an elector college victory.
The compulsive need to label everything that Randi Lee Harper and Brianna Wu disagree with, as some kind of “-ist” harms the Democrats electoral chances nationally.
That will also continue to hurt as the alt right is now an organized force, and only a very small percentage are nazi, white supremacist or legitimately white nationalist.
The rest use mockery, ie protected free speech if you are a journalist like Brianna Wu, but not if you are a lowly twitter account, to fight back people that are empowered by Twitter to abuse.
It’s a sick sport wherein Jack tacitly approves of Randi Lee Harper attacking his own consumers for politics.
What’s worse, Democrat activists in the stronghold of CA and the Pacific Northwest have also discovered the truth.
The election was stolen from Bernie Sanders, with the complicity of empowered twitter cyberbullies, Brianna Wu and Randi Lee Harper.
When will Jack Dorsey straighten up and fly right? Abuse on twitter has made headlines for years, and the worst abusers have access to Twitter Safety and Support.
NPR asks, “did social media ruin the 2016 election”?
I believe that for people expecting a Hillary Clinton Presidency, it did.
The ongoing harm to the Democrats will have to be evaluated as tech bubble people, upset with the election results try to secede from California.
Their lessons learned is take their toys and leave, rather than honestly evaluate their own responsibility in harming the Democrats electorally, nationwide on their billions enabled platforms.
Meanwhile Randi Lee Harper does her best to destroy $TWTR.
PS: When contacted by this author for help with abuse of women on twitter, Randi Lee Harper denied knowing “jack.”
