COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

Twitter has the best brand marketing of any social network and it’s not even close

Twitter also censors ~50% the replies to Rouhani & ~40% to Medvedev (see my pinned tweet). You should feel pathetic, but probably don't. MT @thatswattsup [love those ads!] MT @CaseyNewton Twitter has the best brand marketing of any social network[!]

@CaseyNewton How do we define “safe” and then agree on units of measure?

.@loudhailing: one of Putin's main goals is to show the U.S. system (Constitution etc) doesn't work. More U.S. censorship greatly helps that goal & is one reason he was obvious about using bots. @CaseyNewton plays his role, unwittingly helping Putin. By enabling him, you do too.

.@MattRosoff: the main point of the @CaseyNewton blog @kevinroose hypes is censorship. Mozilla's trying to get YT to not recommend "harmful content", they do the same from a different angle. None of them are liberals; they're totalitarians. And, they *help* Putin's goals.

.@les_jus22: hey Leslie, @kathygriffin greatly helped Trump. Has she ever atoned for greatly helping Trump, such as by helping smart/sane/patriotic campaigns to hold him accountable? E.g., really pressing his proxies on how his successor will neglect/demolish his "wall".

.@KevinCarson1: any chance you could get to NYC on Friday? @CaseyNewton & Oliver Darcy are going to be at the big Fight Against Hate rally & they need people to bring Alex Jones books for the Bonfire Against Hate? Fewer Alex Jones books = less hate! #TheResistance

Lil' fascist @CaseyNewton of #TheVerge is shocked and surprised #Twitter won't ban Trump, because doing that would make everything all good again and it'd be like the election never happened and everything. #MAGA #resist
