    As the discourse rolls on regarding former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick‘s decision to take a knee during the national anthem–and the movement his protest ignited–support for the blacklisted athlete-cum-activist is sprouting up across the country. Yesterday afternoon, on Twitter, some of that support came from U.S. Army Infantry Officer and U.S. Military Academy at West Point alumnus, Spenser Rapone. Rapone posts under the handle @punkproletarian and is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. Under the hashtag #VeteransForKaepernick, he tweeted an image of himself raising the left clenched-fist of solidarity, support and resistance as well as the message, “Communism...

    A man accidentally started a social media war between two of London’s biggest museums. During The Natural History Museum's Ask a Curator event on Twitter, one man had this pressing query he needed answering: Who would win in a staff battle between @sciencemuseum and @NHM_London, what exhibits/items would help you be victorious? #askacurator The Natural History Museum replied: We have dinosaurs. No contest. But then the Science Museum jumped in... @NHM_London is full of old fossils, but we have robots, a Spitfire and ancient poisons. Boom! #AskACurator …

The hurricane named Irma took my eye off the development, so I quit checking on a regular basis as we prepared. So this is a recent development. Trump has Trumped CNN.

    Columbia University’s “Knight Institute” is suing the Trump administration on behalf of seven individuals alleging the president “blocked” them from reading his Twitter feed. The lawsuit, filed with the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleges that due to Mr. Trump’s usage of his personal Twitter account to engage with the public, his @realdonaldtrump Twitter account is a “public forum,” blocking citizens of access is “unconstitutional,” and his personal Twitter account should be treated as a public forum under federal law.

    British Prime Minister Theresa May lashed out at President Trump for suggesting in a tweet that Friday’s London subway terrorist had been known to police. May said that his assertion was not “helpful” and that authorities were still investigating the “full circumstances” surrounding the attack, which injured at least 22 people. In his tweetstorm, Trump referred to the attacker as a “loser terrorist.” “These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!” he said. “Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner. The internet is their main recruitment tool...

    As Sharia continues to descend over the Internet. Remember Google’s old motto, “Don’t be evil”? It sounds so ironic now, with the social media giants all rushing to implement Sharia blasphemy restrictions and choke off all criticism of Islam. Twitter is working so hard to do this that it should adopt a new motto: “Be evil.” Twitter certainly lives by that motto. It lets stand open death threats against me. It censors content to suit Iran’s Islamic authorities. It has flagged as “hateful” tweets stating the fact that Islam is not a religion of peace and reporting accurately about anti-Semitic...

    This one falls under "too stupid to believe," but it's actually true. Twitter has banned writer Elizabeth Johnston, who writes at "The Activist Mommy," for her war of words with Teen Vogue editor Phillip Picardi Not only has Twitter banned her, but YouTube will not allow her video commentaries to be monetized. While Johnston's posts and views are controversial to some, none of what she has to say is new. Her views on homosexuality come from the best-selling book in the world — the Bible. The tweet that got her booted was a little salty and perhaps not the best...
  • University tweets: Conservative views are linked to ‘anger

    The University of Cincinnati attempts to draw connections between the amount of anger an individual exhibits, and their political preferences. “The motorist tailgating you on the highway might be doing more than just getting you upset — they could also be influencing your political views,” Koester wrote. Salerno, an assistant professor of marketing, and a second professor from University of Manitoba, came to this bizarre conclusion upon “multiple studies that included more than 1,000 participants.”

    Carroll Quigley supplied the technical overview, from the age of great monopolies in the early 20th century, and continuing. Jules Archer supplied a practical example from a specific historical instance, The Business Plot.Interpolating the two, we can see that continuing monopolies like Amazon and Google are intrinsically fascist--their leftward slant notwithstanding.Quigley showed: You were a small sausage maker in Germany in the early twentieth century. Muscle from the Sausage Cartel came to pay you "a friendly visit". Either you sold out to the cartel, or you'd be put out of business.Archer showed: The House of M. at the behest of...

    President Trump defended White House chief of staff John Kelly on Friday in light of a report saying he was growing irritated with some officials. "General John Kelly is doing a great job as Chief of Staff. I could not be happier or more impressed — and this Administration continues to get things done at a record clip. Many big decisions to be made over the coming days and weeks. AMERICA FIRST!" the president said in a tweet.

    Several social media companies in the West have been criticised for a perceived lack of transparency in alleged talks with the Iranian authorities on censoring content to the approval of the country’s strict religious authorities. Instagram, currently available in the country – as well as Twitter and YouTube, which are blocked but widely visited by Iranians using proxy servers – have all been reported by local media in recent weeks as as co-operating with the authorities to aid them in blocking or censoring “immoral” content.

    Tom Llamas is not the hero Houston needs right now, according to how some of his dispatches were received on Tuesday morning. The ABC News reporter, using the #BREAKING hashtag, told his followers that he saw “looting” taking place at a supermarket in the northeast part of the city, an area grappling with catastrophic floods and supply shortages. And that there was a dead body nearby. In that order. He was immediately met with a heavy dose of internet WTF:

    In the eleven years since Twitter revolutionised the way we use social media, it's been both used and abused by its one billion users. It's helped mobilise revolutions such as the Arab Spring, and it can break huge news stories long before mainstream media are on the scene. Then again, it's also routinely and inadvisably used by the 45th President of the United States , not to mention all the glorious celebrity Twitter spats. But it's not just public figures who attract attention on the Twittersphere with their antics. Regular people regularly attract adversity too. Take this lady for instance....

    Chelsea Clinton really stepped in it on Saturday when she tweeted a Washington Post essay from someone who spent a year in Joe Arpaio’s infamous Maricopa County jail. Only problem was, Clinton tweeted the story headline without quotes, making it read as if she was saying that she spent a year in Arpaio’s jail. “The year I spent in Joe Arpaio’s tent jail was hell. He should never walk free,” the tweet said with a link to the Post essay. The essay details the horrors that Francisco Chairez faced while he was in Arpaio’s jail for a drunk driving conviction....

    Sorry if this is a rerun. I did a search and zip-nada. Remember Valerie Plame Wilson? She’s the former CIA agent who got outed by Richard Armitage in the lead up to the Iraq war. She seems to be looking for a return to the media spotlight with her latest scheme to silence President Trump on Twitter. Her plan is to raise $1 billion dollars to buy a controlling share of the social media platform and then kick Trump off. Her GoFundMe page, which has so far raised about $3,000, says this is necessary to prevent nuclear war with North...
