BBC News: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sued over blocking people on Twitter

US Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is being sued for blocking people on Twitter.

The men say the law should apply to all politicians.

The New York Times: Twitter Takes Down Accounts of China Dissidents Ahead of Tienanmen Anniversary

Twitter is evil, and people who continue to use it are abetting evil.

Three days before the most sensitive political anniversary on the Chinese calendar, Twitter suspended the accounts of Chinese political commentators in what it said was an accident. The move showed starkly the global political ramifications of Silicon Valley slip-ups.

Twitter’s action, which one human rights worker said affected more than 100 users, came over several hours late Friday and early Saturday. It hit human rights lawyers, activists, college students and nationalists, who use workarounds to get access to Twitter, which is banned in China. Just about every part of the raucous, if small, Chinese-language Twitter world was affected.

PJ Media: Online Extremism Researcher Eoin Lenihan Finds Twitter Ties Linking HuffPost, the Guardian, and the SPLC to Antifa

It’s not that democrat with bylines are against violence, they support antifa violence.

Eoin Lenihan, a former teacher and current analyst focused on online extremism, announced that his team had “mapped the social interactions of 58,254 Antifa affiliated accounts on Twitter based on an initial seed of 16 self-identifying and verifiable Antifa accounts (and Mark Bray who chose not to confirm if he is a member of Antifa but whose book makes a solid case for inclusion).”

In a long Twitter thread, Lenihan revealed the results of his study, zeroing in on the 1.65 percent of Twitter accounts most closely connected with Antifa, a total of 962 accounts. Each had a minimum of eight connections with known activists.

After mentioning a few journalists with close Antifa connections and Twitter bios mentioning their anti-fascist affiliation, Lenihan turned to Emily Gorcenski, who “uses Twitter to dox those she deems fascist. Further she created the ‘First Vigil’ website that processes court documents to share the personal information of suspected members of the far right. In cases where people are found innocent (50%), info is still shared.”
