And speaking of death threats, I reported two death threats that I got from Muslims on Twitter, and Twitter did Nothing about them, leaving their accounts intact. Let that sink in.
If Twitter can successfully convince people that it won’t go too far in its latest efforts to purge or downrank certain content and communications will be a hard-pressed task for a company that is often accused of inappropriate censorship.
Using an algorithm for distinguishing purposes might help eschew concerns that individual employees either on their own or at the behest of their superiors are censoring content they don’t like for ideological reasons. But algorithms are often a reflection of their creators, and can potentially be faulty due to unforeseen circumstances or inherent biases.

A security flaw in the Ring camera-equipped doorbell could allow people to spy on you.

In its article, The Information cites Miami resident Jesus Echezarreta, who didn’t know he was being spied on by his ex-boyfriend via Ring. His ex told Echezarreta he needed to walk his dog more; when asked how he would know that, he confessed to watching Echezarreta with the app.
So what kind of curriculum were Canadian tax dollars being spent on? In addition to an “Aboriginal Art Tour”, an “Indigenous Walking Tour”, and a Youth Program designed to teach student in grades 6 through 12 how to “dismantle white supremacy, white privilege and other forms of oppression in their communities”, the conference also consisted of multiple lectures and breakout sessions with titles like “Combating Systemic Racism in School Mathematics” and “White People: From Origins in North America to a Global Norm”.

The New York Daily News slammed Ivanka Trump as “Daddy’s Little Ghoul” in a Tuesday cover story mocking the first daughter as “seemingly oblivious” for attending the U.S. Embassy opening in Jerusalem.
The cover ridiculed Ivanka for being “all smiles” at the embassy opening while deadly clashes occurred in Gaza and even referred to her as a “deplorable” in a tweet promoting the derogatory cover.
Attacking the spouses and children of politicians has long been considered off limits, but Ivanka’s role in the administration creates gray area for the first daughter.
Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX) slams the deputy attorney general’s handling of the Russian investigation.
Tucker: We’ve learned that when Russia did try to influence the 2016 campaign online, they were lousy at it, spending a small amount of money on ads almost nobody saw, mostly in states that weren’t competitive.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., needs to go nuclear – now. That’s rumored to be the pitch from President Trump when he meets with Senate Republicans Tuesday, and the president is correct.
There’s an election coming up and Republicans are furious that their hard-won majorities in the House and the Senate have earned them few rewards. Where is the progress on infrastructure? Where is the fix to immigration? What about health care? Voters want results and they aren’t getting them. The Senate majority leader could fix that.
Voters don’t know it, but there’s plenty of popular and productive legislation that has moved forward over the past few months in the House. At the Milken Conference in California this year, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., talked about hundreds of bills – many receiving robust bipartisan support – that have passed his chamber this year but died in the Senate.
