Twitter to inform users of content they saw from Russian trolls

Twitter said Wednesday it plans to inform users who had contact with Russian internet trolls that spread misinformation during the 2016 election.

In response to a question from Sen. Richard Blumenthal at a Commerce Committee hearing, Twitter's director of public policy, Carlos Monje, said his company is working to identify and inform individual users who may have been exposed to accounts of the Kremlin-linked Internet Research Agency.

"We will be rolling out our response shortly," Monje said.

Facebook made a similar announcement in November 2017, saying it would create a portal to allow users to learn of any Facebook or Instagram contact they may have had with Russian internet trolls between January 2015 and August 2017.

The Trump name is being scrubbed off skylines from New York to Toronto to Rio as the brand backfires


snip:


Any building that chooses to end its association with the Trump brand is likely motivated by financial reasons … [and] no doubt greatly influenced by beliefs about how the brand affects the building’s bottom line,” says Gabby Warshawer, director of research for CityRealty. All of which, she says, raises “questions about the viability of the Trump brand”.

Indeed, just down the road from where I’m standing, three other apartment buildings were also once known as Trump Place. Just eight days after the 2016 election, the rental buildings rebranded as 140, 160 and 180 Riverside Boulevard, after hundreds of the building’s residents petitioned the owner, Equity Residential, to “dump the Trump name”. The brand no longer signified premium, but prejudice, said residents: it had become an embarrassment.

Was on the puter,, it's 11 pm, and realized it had gotten very very quiet outside. No noise whatsoever.., so looked outside.

This has been a winter for the record books..weeks of it and twice snow, this far south.

I am watching Cory Booker's statement from the hearing, he's making me cry.

He is less than 3 minutes in, and so profoundly moved, so honest and real, I had to grab Kleenex.
What a contrast to the lying plastic people in this Admin.

Shades of Nixon: Trump admits to WH tapes.


"Fortunately we now record conversations with reporters........"

In one of the books about Trump, it said he was able to listen in at any land line at Mar-Loco. That he enjoyed doing it.

Wondering how many areas of the WH are taped.
Thankfully Mueller will find out, then we will.

People are flocking to Yelp and other Hotel review sites and rating Trumps property's as #Sh#tHoles.
