$TWTR @Jack Has A Very Large Problem With Safety, Advertisers and Advertising.

It’s perfectly acceptable to solicit HITMEN on twitter.

So when Jack Dorsey says Twitter starts with Safety, I know this to be an outright lie.

I know this because I have reported this tweet soliciting a hitman to Twitter support.  The attached response was received.

capture

It’s INSANE to me that soliciting a hitman does not violate twitter’s policy.  I documented submitting the tweet to Twitter support here.

Just for fun I will report it again.

Twitter already delivers some of the lowest rates of visits to external sites among the leading social media platforms.

Facebook leads at 62% outbound traffic to just 6% for twitter.

Now Twitter wants to hold a market captive, while lowering the visibility of the tweets.

No one knows if anyone reads anything they tweet, even when their followers have chosen to follow them and see tweets.

Twitter hides a significant amount of data that Facebook releases.

I have NO idea how twitter advertisers can reasonably calculate a ROI on twitter unless very large corporate advertisers are given access to data that smaller advertisers are not given through “Twitter Ads” within the twitter ap itself.

Jack Dorsey is designing a bubble that stops conversation, and for potential advertisers this is NOT a good thing.

Now Jack Dorsey has instituted Safety rules which:

Collapsing potentially abusive or low-quality Tweets:
Our team has also been working on identifying and collapsing potentially abusive and low-quality replies so the most relevant conversations are brought forward. These Tweet replies will still be accessible to those who seek them out. You can expect to see this change rolling out in the coming weeks.

 

However it should be noted that empowered “activists” with access to Twitter Safety label political enemies as “low quality.”

And the very same activists note that Twitter has been hiding death threats from them.

Randi, who designed a bot to hide hashtags, runs amuck on twitter and silences LGBT advocates.

However, as Randi Lee Harper notes, the “low quality” designation is subjective.

Randi Lee Harper, founder of Online Abuse Prevention Org propagated ISIS on twitter.

How is a safety consultant that propagates ISIS A SAFETY CONSULTANT?

How is Jack Dorsey doing anything that actually makes people safer yet lets them communicate with their target audiences and friends?

To help advertisers make decisions about where to spend their valuable advertising dollars we propose the following:

  1.  Twitter reveal the nature of their low quality algoritm.
  2. Twitter provide reasonable, adjusted estimates of click through rates after application of their algorithm.
  3.  Twitter make it known to potential advertisers before purchase if THEY are considered low quality by Twitter.
  4. Twitter give advertisers the option to tweet advertising without application of Twitter’s algorithm to their tweets & to replies to their tweets.
  5.  Twitter eliminate the millions of known fake accounts now known to exist.

We note that CA state law prohibits retribution by companies of authors of online reviews.

We consider twitter’s algorithm, if tweets to companies people are customers of are suppressed, to violate the spirit and intent of that law, if not the letter of the law.

What use is being able to tweet a company you are a  customer of if Jack Dorsey *winki *wink suppresses your speech with an unexplained algorithm.

OF COURSE BUSINESS CONSIDERS BAD REVIEWS “LOW QUALITY.”  That’s why we need a LAW in the first place.

Essentially Twitter has failed to adequately handle abuse, and now is suppressing conversations of many people in far to wide a net.

Jack Dorsey thinks his opinion of what is good content is superior to consumers who can choose to mute, block or not follow at all.

And Jack Dorsey glaringly fails to address actual terrorists operating on twitter in large numbers.  Terrorists his OWN SAFETY CONSULTANT has propagated.

Nick Flor is a Professor at University of New Mexico.  A professor of Cognitive Science. Hardly one to be considered “low quality.”

Jack Dorsey is destroying the ability to communicate on twitter.    This seems a bad thing for a communications company on the internet.

Twitter is a black hole of traffic.  Once you are on it, you have no idea if people THAT WANT TO READ YOUR TWEETS can read your tweets.

Twitter For Good.

The ability to use Twitter to speak Truth to Power™ should not be understated.

Having watched the development of the F-35 and the difficulties with that program I asked General Chuck Yeager for his opinion on the jet.

President elect Trump shortly thereafter tweeted about the cost overruns.

Recommendations for Twitter, Twitter DC and government to facilitate the ability to speak with our elected representatives & government as follows.

  1.  White House Administration and Senate/House Committees list Office Holders, Members and relevant Staff twitter accounts on the committee websites.
  2.  Twitter compile and make a database available of relevant office holders and staff twitter accounts across government.

 

 

 

$TWTR Damages Their Investors As #RandiLeeHarper Advocates For ISIS

It is astonishing that @Jack and @Vijaya have allowed 3 people to harm Twitter to the extent that they have.

Lies not only poison the well for twitter and investors, but it destroys what Twitter is at it’s core.  A social media company.  A communications company.

Yet Randi Lee Harper, Zoe Quinn and Brianna Wu erode trust in Twitter daily as they regularly attack twitter consumers.

When Women Action Media teamed up with Twitter to work on the abuse problem, the study concluded that only .66% of harassment claimed by Randi Lee Harper was actually gamergate related.

 

Capture

z2kfbyx2

#Gamergate is a hashtag that twitter allows.  

Yet Twitter allowed 4 women, Randi Lee Harper (@randileeharper), Brianna Wu (@spacekatgal), Zoe Quinn (@unburntwitch)  to label Twitter’s own customers as a “Hate group” equivalent to ISIS for tweeting to a hashtag.

Zoe Quinn is a partner with Randi Lee Harper in Online Abuse Prevention Initiative, allegedly an anti abuse organization.

Frankly it’s a leader in abuse on social media.

 

Although Brianna Wu lists Anita Sarkeesian (@femfreq) as the 4th of their group of women, I find no mention of comparing #gamergate tweets to ISIS in a search of tweets.

 

And yet it is @Randileeharper herself who is “signal boosting” ISIS, as she disseminated instructions on how to create an ISIS botnet, twitter handles of suspected ISIS accounts and various other means of social media usage by ISIS to her followers (and the public as anyone may come across her tweets.)

 

Randi Lee Harper considers tweeting a joke about ISIS as advocating for ISIS…

 

And it is Randi Lee Harper herself who has contacts at Twitter with Safety.

Capture

 

 

Randi Lee Harper brags about taking down WoC journalists openly on twitter.

 

It is shameful journalism, and contributes to the destruction of Twitter itself as @Jack and @Vijaya allow a lie to propagate and disseminate on Twitter.

Why is this person allowed to terrorize Twitter consumers?

 

Randi Lee Harper (a pseudonym, her real name is Olivia Pope) routinely tells consumers to set themselves on fire.

 

And yet this is how Randi Lee Harper treats professional journalists on Twitter.  With utter content, condescension and disdain.

 

 

Randi isn’t hesitatant to talk to reporters.  She only talks to compliant reporters, such as predatorial @jessesingal.

 

So many of the professional tech media simply regurgitate the hateful rehetoric spewed by these 3.

How did the #gamergate hashtag start?

Hollywood actor Adam Baldwin invented it in a tweet.

Randi Lee Harper jumped on it, and started accusing a Hollywood Actor, Adam Baldwin, of being a leader of a hate mob.

And the media ate it up.

Randi Lee Harper has even leaked consumers private information as it relates to moderation of their accounts as @safety has a leak.

Capture

 

 

(Adam has taken to deleting his tweets as protest against Twitter which monetizes him as they allow him to be viciously abused by a predator, Randi Lee Harper.)

 

 

You can see more of Randi Lee Harper’s abuse of Adam, here.

And at no time has Twitter protected their consumers or investors from this insidious attack on their own business interests and customers.

Twitter is utterly corrupt and management and the Board needs to be removed.

They allow Randi Lee Harper to spew lies, abuse and threats.  It’s sick.

 

“Aggressively parroted” by attorneys such as Mitch Jackson, CA litigator of the year in 2013, a highly successful trial lawyer.

 

 

 

Twitter plays favorites and allows these women to abuse their customers.  Openly.

 

 

Jack is a liar, lying about Safety being a priority and about censorship.

Twitter censors for Turkey and other governments, yet went on national televsion and told the world that Twitter does not censor.

We know this is demonstrably false, yet Jack misleads his own investors with falsehoods.

We Recommend Not Performing #CustServ, #Advertising or Critical #Business ON $TWTR

It appears that @Jack and @Twittermoments enjoy writing biased headlines that attack large corporate accounts #custserv efforts.

I have no idea if @AmericanAir has ever advertised with Twitter, but I recommend, they, and anyone else not do so.

With advertisers already planning to spend less with Twitter, today @twittermoments curators came out with this gem of a  headline.

 

Capture

 

I am unsure how the Twitter headline writer knows for certain that it is a  “minor dispute” as there is no statement from American Air as to what occured.

There is the lady giving her side, and the professional @AmericanAir staff responding back.

 

 

 

However only one tweet was placed into the “moments” curated story.

Capture

 

As you can see Imani Cezzane did not see or did not respond to the first two tweets.

Yet Twitter could have found the same 2 tweets and placed them into the @twittermoments.

They chose not to.

I have no information as to the exact nature of what happened because there is no statement from American Air.

There is a social media cust serv trying to help, and having their efforts ignored by their customer and twitter.

The Evil, Hate Filled $TWTR Empire of @Jack and @Randileeharper. #socialmedia #cybersecurity

Randi Lee Harper is the most abusive person I have ever encountered online that simply has been able to remain abusive and unmoderated by Twitter.

I cannot believe @Randileeharper is allowed to have a @twitter account, much less engage in the bullying, harassment and intimidation of twitter customers she flagrantly engages in.

What do journalist Cathy Young, Adult actress Mercedes Carrera, actor Adam Baldwin, Journalist Milo Yiannopoulos, and Game Developer Mark Kern have in common?

Let me rephrase that.  What does a Russian Born Immigrant, a PoC Sex Worker, some white dude, a Gay Jew Greek immigrant, and a Taiwanese immigrant have in common?

Let me rephrase that yet again.

What do people that rely on their free speech for their livelihood have in common?

They are all speaking up for the second amendment.

We are now adding our voice to this struggle.

No one in their right mind is an absolutist about Free Speech.

Having been taught that free speech in the legal sense is free speech minus threats such as don’t yell fire in a crowded movie theatre, don’t make physical threats, this would be clear to anyone of rational mind.

And then we have privileged and empowered Randi Lee Harper.  She is apparently the Darth Vader to Jack and his dark empire.

Randi spends a lot of her time telling people to die in a fire, to light themselves on fire, and other variations thereof.

She also tells people there is no such thing as free speech in social media.

 

She is not a lawyer, and she is wrong.

 

Randi Lee Harper thinks a professional journalist asking her questions on Twitter is “dogpiling.”

 

I’m just going to link tweets for you, of Randi’s.

I contend @Jack is not listening at all.

 

And that his statement herein is a lie.

 

And that this behavior by Twitter is not beneficial for Twitter’s investors.

Capture

 

Remember everyone Randi is talking to is a customer of Twitter, which is open for business.

Anyone she is tweeting might be in any psychological state, a business partner of twitter’s, etc.

This is how Randi Lee Harper is allowed to treat people on Twitter.

She is a ball of empowered hate and bigotry.

All tweets are archived here.

 

Pretty much anyone using social media to talk is accused of sending mobs after Randi if they talk about what Randi does to them.

 

Actually reading content is where it’s at to know what someone is about.

 

44% of consumers online are gamers.  Why is this woman free to abuse 44% of potential twitter customers?

 

 

Self immolation as an act of suicide.  Advocating one self immolate is advocation of violence.

It remains clear to me that despite all of @jack’s words, he hates consumers.

No rational company would allow Randi Lee Harris to attack their own customers in a never ending torrent of hate, vitriol and advocation of violence if they had ANY regard for their “users” as people.

Meanwhile Randi classifies talking as causing a mob.  She’s anti social.  The antithesis of social media, and is destroying $TWTR.

Why A Corporatocracy  Equals Fascism

Keith Gill, AKA #DigitalKeith, leader of social media company EmpireKred, thought that we both live in a corporatocracy in the United States and that a corporation could not violate a customers civil rights.

Do you want to be the customer of a corporation that believes they can do anything to you and cannot violate your civil rights by virtue of it’s being a corporation exercising it’s property rights?

Is DigitalKeith’s retweet an endorsement?  This quote is positively Orwellian.

 

I have no idea how a former USAF veteran could have been turned into such a fascist, but it seems clear he is one to me.

According to the Libary of Economics and Liberty,

As an economic system, fascism is socialism with a capitalist veneer.

 

With the United States government engaging in partnerships with corporations to “invest at home” it’s clear there’s a major shift from a “free market” with limited intervention in the economy into one of corporate control where citizens are subject to the whims of corporations with little to no recourse.

Fortunately California is not a corporatocracy, and the CA DoJ and SF DA’s office acted to protect consumers from Keith Gill and the “goon squad” of Empire Avenue.

Do you believe that consumers, aka citizens are protected by the Constitution whether they are directly addressing their government, or simply by virtue of being a citizen of the United States exercising their rights wherever they are?

Are corporations “benevolent dictatorships”?

Keith Gill is on record on Paul Steinbrueck’s blog stating that,

I have no idea why Keith Gill doesn’t respect consumer advocacy, I just know that he doesn’t, and he’s not above trying to be intimidating to try to get his way.

 

Capitalism relies on informed consumers not abused by corporate leaders.

If there’s no meeting of minds, there’s not a valid contract, or possibility of informed consent to a sale.

There can’t be a meeting of minds when one side of the discussion, in this case Keith Gill of Avisolve, is willing to use cyberbullying, harassment and intimidation to try to stifle discussion of events that are well within one’s legal rights.

Keith Gill should be ashamed to describe himself as a little L libertarian.

I believe he’s a fascist, to the core.

How Can Employee Affect A Brand? Caveat Emptor; Of “Wolves” and “Sheep” In The Free Market

Do you divide the world into the simplistic notion of “wolves” and “sheep”?

Or do you realize that we are all individuals that make discrete decisions based upon our own needs, desires and resources?

That the decision to enter into a purchase reflects an informed choice made by an informed consumer?

 

In comedy, the advice is to “know your audience.”

A corollary in social media sales would be to, uhhh, “Know Your Audience.”

According to  Jill Schiefelbein. former Business Professor and @Entrepreneur contributor,

Capture

 

Obviously the inability to accept correct feedback, critique and crticism marks a social sales amateur and differentiates the true professionals with a message that helps others from a person intent on simply fulfilling his own needs, desires and goals, no matter the costs to others.

Even potential customers in the marketplace.

Caveat Emptor if considering doing business with Keith Gill, aka DigitalKeith, leader of EmpireKred and employee of Avisolve.

We know how DigitalKeith feels.

How Can A Corporate #Marketing Mgr’s Reputation Affect The Brand?

Keith Gill, AKA Digitalkeith. leader of EmpireKred and Corporate Marketing Manager for @Avisolve seems to be a Brands worst case public relations disaster.

An individuals reputation can be thought of as their personal brand.

According to Find and Convert,

Personal branding is well recognized as the public earned reputation of an individual. The digital world, fueled by content marketing and social media, has propelled the concept of personal branding into the mainstream.

The corporate organization that embraces the benefits of employee personal branding with a plan, can reap significant benefits. Here’s a look at some of the key planning elements to harness the personal brand in the corporate workplace.

 

According to CyberAlert, 

Businesses wonder if they should encourage employees to mention their employers on their personal social media accounts or discourage or even forbid mentions of the company. Some companies hope to gain substantial PR and marketing benefits; others fear employee social media comments will reflect badly on the company or lead to a PR crisis. Employees may be equally unsure about if and how they can mention their employers online.

 

According to the Huffington Post,

No matter what your product or service, your employees are the most powerful representation of your brand.

We have all dealt with the customer service representative that either builds loyalty or breaks it based on our experience. And while new customers were once thought of as the lifeblood of successful companies, current customers and customer loyalty has become more valuable than ever in our age of social media.

2.  Are you aware Mr. Gill was running demonstrably false advertising through Empire Avenue’s socialmedia promotions system, and continued after Klout (@kloutsupport) confirmed his advertising was incorrect?

 

2A:  Are you aware that a complaint with the FTC was filed (and accepted by the FTC) at the direction of Ethel Newlin of the San Francisco District Attorney’s office?

3.  Is trolling with abusive comments on blogs and in tweets an appropriate response rather than accepting constructive (and correct) criticism and critique?

4.  Are you aware that Mr. Gill’s abuse (along with others) was so severe that the CA DoJ opened an inquiry into the matter? (xref 615640) and that the San Francisco DA’s office twice intervened?

This “intervention” was corraborated by Steven Krohn on 2/5/2015, 1 day after Twitter made a statement that they “sucked at dealing with abuse” (Dick Costolo CEO.)

The San Francisco DA’s office  (Ethel Newlin)credits blogging by this blogger with helping change Twitter’s abuse policy.  Keith Gill was a party in that abuse.

6.  Is Mr. Gill participating in doxing potential customers and other people on your time on his twitter account or social media accounts?

Gareth Davies (@me_gareth) also a leader at EmpireKred, has been suspended for tweeting my private information. For Keith Gill to involve himself in such unprofessional conduct is shocking to me.

#EmpireKred Leader and (Lack Of) Truth in #Advertising

Concerned about truth in advertising?

Keith Gill, AKA Digitalkeith is currently a corporate marketing manager at @avisolve.

Apparently Keith Gill, AKA DigitalKeith, leader of EmpireKred and “social sales rock star” was not.

Nor were the admins of Empire Avenue as they allowed Keith Gill to run his demonstrably false advertising through Empire Avenue social media promotions “missions” system.

When I was in email correspondence with the San Francisco District Attorney’s office Ethel Newlin of the San Francisco DA’s office told me to file a FTC complaint against Mr. Gill.

And I already had.

And the FTC took the complaint.  Into a huge database…  Where it will never be seen again most likely.  However enough complaints might merit some activity and Mr. Gill is now on the radar.

However Mr. Gill’s conduct was so egregious that the District Attorney’s office recommended the action.
