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.

.@cyberconservat2: I was given access to someone else's #Google data & I've been raising the alarm about how closely they track people for months. Maybe in a few years @jenvalentino will blog about the data at my top tweet showing what Twitter does to their users.
