Democrats And Twitter Inc Sitting In A Tree K-I-S-S-I-N-G

Anime Right News [ARN] – The viral #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag, which trended at #1 on Twitter for many hours on January 18th, 2018, appears to be the catalyst behind Twitter’s conveniently timed commitment to be as transparent as possible about sharing what we have learned through our retroactive investigation into activity related to the election“. 

This egregious display of towing the line for the Democrat party comes in the form of an unexpected press release(blog post) where Twitter attempts to corroborate the failed Putin/Trump 2016 collusion narrative still being peddled by Democrat leaders today.

It can't be overstated how this disclosure comes directly on the heels of both the #ReleaseTheMemo outcry and Republican Congress Chair, Devin Nunes' demand to publically release said FISA memo. Keep in mind, this memo is rumored to effectively put an end to the Democrat conceived special investigation into Trump and, in a Life Comes At You Fast moment, actually incriminate the Democrats instead.

Can't make this stuff up, folks.

 


Since I Said It Can't Be Overstated... One More Time

Only a few hours after the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag goes viral on their platform, Twitter chooses to notify thousands of unsuspecting users that they may have retweeted, followed, or liked Russian government propaganda accounts during the 2016 election.


 

Twitters Official Statement:

Update on Twitter’s Review of the 2016 U.S. Election

By Twitter PublicPolicyFriday, 19 January 2018 

   

When we appeared before the United States Congress last fall, Twitter publicly committed to regularly updating both congressional committees and the public on findings from our ongoing review into events surrounding the 2016 U.S. election.

Twitter is committed to providing a platform that fosters healthy civic discourse and democratic debate.  We have been cooperating with congressional investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. We have committed to be as transparent as possible about sharing what we have learned through our retroactive investigation into activity related to the election.

Since we presented our findings to Congress last fall, we have updated our analysis and continue to look for patterns and signals in data. Today, we are sharing an update on several aspects of that ongoing work, as well as steps we are taking to continue to make progress against potential manipulation of our platform.

Informing People of Malicious Activity in the 2016 Election

As previously announced, we identified and suspended a number of accounts that were potentially connected to a propaganda effort by a Russian government-linked organization known as the Internet Research Agency (IRA).

Consistent with our commitment to transparency, we are emailing notifications to 677,775 people in the United States who followed one of these accounts or retweeted or liked a Tweet from these accounts during the election period. Because we have already suspended these accounts, the relevant content on Twitter is no longer publicly available

A quick visit the "retroactive investigation" hyperlink in the excerpt above and you will find:

We studied Tweets from the period September 1 to November 15, 2016.

The Notification Email (Accessibility Version)



The Important Part

Anime Right News spoke with 22 individuals who received the notification email from Twitter.

We gathered the following information:

  • Confirmed they actually received the notification email
  • Confirmed the date their account was created (from profile)
  • On January 18th did they tweet, retweet, or like any tweets containing the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag?


👀

*Orange highlighted rows are accounts created after the 2016 election


Results:
50% (11 of 22) were actually created after the 2016 election
96% (21 of 22) did interact with #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag

How can you 'follow, retweet, or like' tweets from Russian bot accounts during the 2016 election if your account did not exist during the 2016 election? 🤔

Basically, every account notified participated in Release The Memo by tweeting, retweeting, or liking content with the #ReleaseTheMemo hashtag? 🤔

Reminder: Twitter is claiming to have notified 677,775 accounts about their inadvertent Russian collusion. 

Real Talk: How many of those 677k accounts were actually created after the elections and also happen to have participated in the problematic hashtag? Similar ratio to our 50% and 96%?

 

 

What Do You Make Of This?

Obviously, you are free to come up with whatever explanation suits your fancy.


Personally, I think its safe to assume this is Twitter's embarrassing hail mary attempt to help their Democrats pals distract from the FISA memo while trying to publicly draw a correlation between the abundance of right-wing Twitter users supporting #ReleaseTheMemo and those untraceable tweets supposedly made by state-sponsored Russian bot accounts.

If so, this strategy also serves to delegitimize dissenting voices on social media by reducing their political concerns to that of "bots", "foreign enemy agents", and/or "not real people".

Very concerning tbqh.

 

Twitter Continues To Show Their Hand...

And they are All-In for the corrupt Democrats.

You know what? I’m gonna tell you right now, this is from her father, you bunch of lying, no-good punks! And I know who it’s coming from, because I back-traced it, and I know who’s emailing and who’s doing it, and you’ve been reported to cyber police and the state police. You better not write one more thing or screw with my computer again, you’ll be arrested, end of conversation, from her father! And if you come near my daughter, guess what? Consequences will never be the same, you lying bunch of pricks!
