Is Threatening To Horsewhip a Jewish Survivor of Stoneman Douglas (Mass shooting) A Violation of Twitter ToS?

Kyle Kashuv, a Jewish 17 year old senior at Stoneman Douglas, was threatened by a man named Christopher Suprun, a twitter verified account, with a “horsewhipping.”

He also mentions a “SKing.”  We are not certain who that it however the most prominent person on twitter with those initials is Shaun King, a writer for Glenn Greenwald’s “The Intercept.”

Kyle has tweeted with Chelsea Clinton and has met with many people who aren’t Conservative in an effort to promote bipartisan politics and good faith, non violent behavior in America.

The tweet of Christopher Suprun was reported to Twitter and we await a response.

Threatening a “horsewhipping” is precisely how racist plantation owners in the antebellum south threatened their slaves and kept order with slaves who learned to read and had their own ideas on slavery and being horsewhipped.

Twitter has acknowledged receipt of the report.

Kyle was involved in an interesting discussion with William Legate when Mr. Suprun intervened to threaten him.

Twitter has a massive problem with antisemitism on the platform as covered by other Main Stream Media sites.

Twitter also has a very well documented (and longstanding) problem with violence and threats of violence on their platform despite ostensible rules prohibiting advocacy of violence.

It is hard to believe that “horsewhipping” a Jewish kid doesn’t glorify and incite violence against other Jews as “horsewhipping” has a long history and is symbolic of the racist South however Twitter lacks transparency and their decisions are often, at best, bizarre.

Kyle Kashuv is simply NOT a Nazi. Threats to abuse others under clearly false pretenses should not be tolerated by Twitter.

If Jack Dorsey feels threats of “horsewhipping” is OK we’d all like to know who he thinks it’s ok to have horsewhipped.

Mr. Supran is also a verified account. If verified accoutns have rights and privileges other twitter customers (the hoi polloi) lack, Jack should make that policy clear to us all as well.

Ed Whelan, “Conservative Activist” Floats “Some Other Dude Done It” Defense For Judge Kavanaugh, Doxes Homeowner

The Judge Kavanaugh confirmation for Supreme Court just became extremely muddled and convoluted.

“Some Other Dude Done It” is a standard defense floated by miscreants when they have no other defense to offer.

The Jury Expert reports,

The results of the current experiment suggest that in court, the addition of one or more alternative suspects would decrease jurors’ belief in the defendant’s guilt, even when the alternative suspect is not actually believed to be the culprit. (See Tenney, Cleary, & Spellman (2009) for more study details.)

Apparently Ed Whelan feels the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh are credible enough that he tracked down a house matching the description and an alleged perpetrator and named them in a bizarre tweetstorm on Twitter.

Ed Whelan tweeted a series of tweets in which he strongly insinuated that a lookalike of Judge Kavanaugh (former classmate) commited the alleged sexual assault of Christine Blasey Ford.

Ed also managed to tweet the name and picture of the man he named and the address AND floorplan of the home he believes the alleged assault may have taken place in.

In other words, this is a massive DOX of private individuals to try to muddy the waters around Judge Kavanaugh.

When Brianna Wu was doxed by Nazi Trump supporter Ethan “Cop Beater” Ralph he tweeted detailed images of the floorplan of Wu’s home.

Ralph who served time in Virginia for assaulting Law Enforcement (a felony), had a nazi on his staff, Lane Davis, who killed his own father, and Wildgoose, a notorious doxer.

Yours truly has been doxed by Wildgoose previously.

 

1_8HIk_JcYjJbV1-JWk9SlDA.png

Ralph began stalking Wu at public appearances.

 

The tweetstorm by Whelancame after he posted a link to this Washington Post article that irresponsibly claimed “mistaken identity would be a welcome resolution.”

Of course we don’t KNOW if there is no evidence or witnesses because the FBI won’t reopen the background check or assert jurisdiction and investigate the allegation.

The effect on the safety and security of the current home owner and the man Whelan named are unknown however doxing is a popular tactic of harassment mobs who know or hope that someone will take action to silence said individuals permanently.

The Cyberbully Research Center reports,

The goal of those who seek, find, and then release personal information of others is ostensibly to bully or scare targets by destroying their sense of privacy and rendering them vulnerable to victimization by future harassers. For instance, a bullying aggressor might make use of your personal information by ordering multiple pizzas (that you never ordered or wanted!) for delivery at your home address. Another tactic is called “swatting,” and occurs when someone anonymously calls the police with a false threat (like a hostage situation) and uses your address, causing deployment of the police SWAT team to show up at your house armed and ready for violent action.

Social Media & “Big Data” Responsible For Character Assassination, Inc.™ Repeal CDA 230.

Big data.

Flow charts of who talks to who, who was seen by whom and little is said about what was said at those meetings.  Or public events.  Or if the nature of the “discussion” was an attempt to understand another or just pure propaganda.

Imagine for a moment that the algorithms and API’s that provide the data “big data” scienists use to evaluate networks is itself biased.

Does that sound impossible?

A woman that silenced LGBT with her bots meets with tech companies to influence their policies.

That’s right.

That same woman begged for “feminism” in the code.

Do you think a woman who became a renowned public speaker had any influence at Google and Youtube over how their algorithm was coded?

Brianna Wu has spent years asking Google to put “trusted sources” into the code.

If we are considering “trustworthiness” isn’t it important that Randi Lee Harper, who worked with Brianna Wu, silenced LGBT with her bots on Twitter?

Who is zooming who here?

Who elected Brianna Wu and Randi Lee Harper Chiefs of Social Ostracization™?

I want a revote.

Tim Pool, who did excellent reporting on the water shortage (crisis) in East Porterville,CA …

…and who is a self employed journalist (multi racial) and non high school graduate finds himself lumped in with some actually awful people.

How do you deal with data scientists that not only rely on biased algorithms and API data but falsify facts?

How to measure the harm to a self employed journalist who the Left appears to be trying to silence?  Tim Pool relies on Youtube monetization for his living.

Congress needs to heavily regulate these monoliths.  And investigate them for Antitrust violations.  CDA 230 needs to be repealed and social media held accountable for the falsehoods their ‘data” enables and their platforms spread by accounts they allow to exist.

In short, social media companies need to have the same risks and responsibilities everyone else int he United States. They have abused their privilege of immunity and have abused others Civil Rights in doing so.

Si Se Puede!

Social Advocate Who Silenced #LGBT Wants Jack Dorsey to Suspend Senator Marco Rubio (R -FL) $twtr

Randi Lee Harper, thinks little of free speech, or @civilrights, or of LGBT and their rights…

http://archive.is/cjsjW

…thinks Senator Marco Rubio should be suspended by twitter for suggesting his followers call a Miami (his constituency) business to register their displeasure that the restaurant owner who supports the dictator of Venezuela.

http://archive.is/kbeJI

http://archive.is/jSvFm

http://archive.is/sdNKU

Randi Lee Harper has her own mob of harassers.

http://archive.is/8MNpx

Randi also has directed that mob to attack people like Mark Kern and tweets intimidating threats of directing that mob at businesses if content is not taken down.

http://archive.is/iaDAn

How does/did Randi control her “mob of harassers?”

She tweets to them.

http://archive.is/3yhJ9

@2dammuslim explained how he and his mob work(ed) in a series of tweets that were archived prior to his suspension.

Randi funds her “work” through her Patreon account.

http://archive.is/S2EIP

Randi hacked a “Protected” twitter account and tweeted what she found to her mob of harassers.

http://archive.is/UxtXP

She also begged Oauth tokens from her followers, which seems to violate the reason for the existence of Oauth in the first place.

http://archive.is/vugAC

Randi apparently wrote code that allows “token swapping” so anyone can swap tokens and fool the host of the content(such a a social media website) into thinking they are an authorized individual operated in good faith.

Randi has over 1,000 Oauth tokens.

http://archive.is/YPgHF

She uses these Oauth tokens to monitor Twitter consumers.

http://archive.is/7ayNd

Randi, who found a way for her bot to “make money” was able to silence LGBT advocates on Twitter who were tweeting to a hashtag she didn’t approve of.

Did Randi Lee Harper register an application and comply with Twitter ToS and Twitter Developer ToS when she was making those API calls with borrowed Oauth tokens?

LGBT had to approach her and beg to not be blocked.

Why was Randi Lee Harper, who is not a Twitter employee, able to decide what a LGBT advocate & DC based attorney could retweet and still be connected to her social network?

Her response to was to remove the LGBT from her blocklist, but if they tweeted AGAIN to the same hastag they would be blocked.

This had the effect of separating vulnerable LGBT from their social support networks and was an intentional, but avoidable, harmful act against a protected category of Twitter customers.

Randi finds herself in a “privileged” position.

Randi gets to decide what hashtag LGBT can tweet to and still be in their own social network on twitter.

http://archive.is/Zg8I4

How does Randi get to work WITH Twitter Safety, have a non disclosure agreement and tweet things like instructions on how to create an ISIS bot network?

http://archive.is/Fif7v

http://archive.is/CJ164

Only Jack knows.

http://archive.is/nSyTy

Strangely enough Randi Lee Harper worked closely with Brianna Wu prior to the election of Donald Trump.

We emailed Brianna Wu for a comment about Randi’s silencing LGBT and she responded in a disdainful manner and then emailed that she had some info about Randi Lee Harper but wanted that information to remain private.

Capture - Copy (2)

Brianna Wu responded with information that we already knew about Randi that anyone could have surmised from Randi’s own tweets.

We can’t publish her response however her lack of concern for the LGBT Randi silenced (we showed her the tweets) is telling in and of itself.

Brianna Wu never responded to the question about harm to LGBT advocates.

Capture

Brianna Wu is a former GOP Staffer for Trent Lott (R -MS).

Randi Lee Harper alleges Wu had a somewhat close assocaition with Nazi Andrew “Weev” Aurenheim so is highly critical of Wu as a person.

 

Wu doesn’t follow her own tweeted rhetoric, having blocked the DNC’s @radiokeri.

Will Jack suspend a sitting US Senator?

Lord only knows because Twitter has proven to be absolutely unpredicatable on their moderation decisions.

How else to explain Randi Lee Harper’s own, extremely abusive, history on Twitter?

http://archive.is/a0szk

Jack, and Twitter Safety tolerate(d) some abuse, and not other abuse, is the only rational explanation.

Can people who work with Twitter Safety simply hack, silence and abuse LGBT and Twitter Support will not act to suspend/moderate them?

What is going on at Twitter?

They say they monitor behaviors and are trying to be proactive but Randi Lee Harper has been on twitter, openly conducting herself in the manner for years.   Continue reading Social Advocate Who Silenced #LGBT Wants Jack Dorsey to Suspend Senator Marco Rubio (R -FL) $twtr

Tech Bro Anil Dash is a Gaslighting Douchelord Troll!

Anil Dash was a “leading supporter” of Republican TERF Randi “Die In A Fire” Lee Harper.

http://archive.is/uGpmz

 

Randi Lee Harper’s credentials are IMPECCABLE.

Randi Lee Harper tweeted she lead a haraassment mob and now Anil in his “I am not listening, I am right about everything” mode, has decided harassment mobs don’t exist.

There Is No “Twitter Mob”

You see, there is no “Twitter mob”, there’s only people

Sorry, but mob leaders who attacked people FOR Randi have tweeted about how their abuse mob tactics worked before they were suspended, Anil.

Sorry LGBT silenced by a harassment mob leading Republican terf, but what you saw you did not see.  IT did NOT happen to you.  Anil Dash says so.

Anil Dash is STILL “this asshole.”

http://archive.is/8oQcd

How did a Republican TERF who silenced LGBT gain such prominence?

Early supporters like Anil Dash latched onto her message and didn’t listen to her victims.

Anil Dash is a gaslighting troll denying the very reality Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey says exists at Twitter and that we know Anil Dash particpated in.

He is condescending, rude and a participant in harassment.

Please ban Harassment Mob Foot Soldier/Troll Anil Dash.

Anil Dash.  Gaslighting Troll.

$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.

capture1

 

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 @Jack @Support Fail As Lone Conservative Director of Communications Makes Threats

The Director of Communcations for Lone Conservative (@loconservative), Michael McClister (@themidmerican) has threatened me on Twitter.

Mr. McClister, who previously posted my art without credit for which I filed DCMA takedowns and prevailed, is under the mistaken belief that I have doxed him.

capture

Twitter, in all their wisdom, locked the account and forced the deletion of one (?) tweet.

capture

However twitter left the following tweets up.

The tweets tell the full tale of Mr. McClister’s vicious threats.

 

Twitter General Council Vijaya Gadde wrote in her Washington Post Op-Ed of April 16, 2015 that,

This is, to put it mildly, not good enough. Freedom of expression means little as our underlying philosophy if we continue to allow voices to be silenced because they are afraid to speak up. We need to do a better job combating abuse without chilling or silencing speech.

With vicious predatorial people like Michael McClister on Twitter one should doubt Twitter’s commitment to protect their consumers.

One should also doubt Twitter’s ability to protect their own business as Mr. McClister is heavily promoting Gab.Ai, the home of the alt right, on his twitter account and in articles penned at Lone Conservative.

Twitter’s inability to control the abuse by people such as Mr. McClister is a prominent feature of their lack of growth and corresponding stock price drop.

 

Of worrisome note is the rise of anti semitism on twitter, and now the Daily Stormer being heavily posted on gab.ai by Rickey Vaughn, a prominent suspended twitter account in the alt right.

Andrew Torba, CEO of GAB writes,

At Gab, we believe that free speech and free thought are under attack. Political correctness has risen up at the expense of freedom of speech and has become a cancer on discourse and culture. We think that people shouldn’t treat unpleasant, counter-cultural, or conflicting ideas, words, or behaviors as full-scale criminal offenses.”
