@nkav This is not a movie I have seen, but I’ll accept that it’s important somehow.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to nkav

@nkav @jdub I literally have no idea what that means.

via TweetDeck in reply to nkav

@garthk Stalin is sad to hear this.

via TweetDeck in reply to garthk

Julian Assange in Julian Assange is a cunt shock.

via TweetDeck

@JonoH Stop that. The 50C temperature has fucked up your mind.

via TweetDeck in reply to JonoH

@jdub Or half a kilo of meth, One or the other.

via TweetDeck in reply to jdub

DMC… DNC… some American bullshit event in their pseudo-democracy anyway. Like I care.

via TweetDeck

@jdub I’m sure you can imagine how sad I am.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

That said, with evidence DMC was hacked by Russian interests, and other fun stuff, we’re in smoke-and-mirrors land, people. Buyer beware.

via TweetDeck

Short version: If anyone tells you Wikileaks is “censored”, they’re full of shit. There’s no evidence anything is “blocked”.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

All @wikileaks + allies tweets are visible. No warning on wikileaks.org. Some wikileaks.com pages (who?) have warnings.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Please be wary of this crap. No-one is “censored”. There are real concerns about links to malware in this doc trove. twitter.com/wikileaks/stat…

via Twitter Web Client

@purserj @R_Chirgwin @dobes Yep. Nothing is blocked, just a malware warning, but a bunch of alleged WL supporters are encouraging… etc.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to purserj

@R_Chirgwin @dobes Well that should turn out well. And is it to wikileaks.com not wikileaks.org? Shit is going down.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@garthk Why do you even bother asking that? There’s a whole level above where these guys play, and they are but pawns.

via TweetDeck in reply to garthk

@thegrugq_ebooks You are so behind the pace, Gentle Robot.

via TweetDeck in reply to thegrugq_ebooks

Oh here’s another threat that’ll fill you with hilarity of exactly the wrong kind. twitter.com/dandrezner/sta…

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin @dobes I know, but no-one is “blocking” anything.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@dobes @R_Chirgwin I had a long conversation earlier with someone who reckoned Google and Twitter “blocking” Wikileaks was a Hillary thing.

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

@R_Chirgwin @dobes No, no, seriously, you don’t want Wikiliebers in your mentions.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@dobes @R_Chirgwin I was engaged with some Wikiliebers earlier, We’ve crossed the looking glass here.

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

@R_Chirgwin Really? They’re actually saying that? Which vendors?

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@dobes Well it saves from me having to read the transcript.

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

@ddowza In the past 48 hours the entire narrative has taken a fundamental shift.

via TweetDeck in reply to ddowza

@R_Chirgwin It’s not incompatible. I just can’t be bothered.

@ddowza I’ve never heard of her before. I’ll take that on board.

via TweetDeck in reply to ddowza

@ivovic All good. Also s/glass/bottle/. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to ivovic

@ivovic No, my contention is that I’ve been drinking and who the fuck cares. It’s only “The Free World” at risk.

via TweetDeck in reply to ivovic

@ivovic As I say, I’ve been drinking. It’s Sunday. Like I care.

via TweetDeck in reply to ivovic

@ddowza Not to detract from the hilarious, I must say.

via TweetDeck in reply to ddowza

If your answer is “Watch Insiders” then what the fuck was the question and who even are you?

via TweetDeck

@ivovic Also, it’s possible I may have has a glass of wine.

@ivovic The gorilla thing is what caused me to look at the prone number.

via TweetDeck

@ivovic Sure, that’s kind of where I was heading with that.

via TweetDeck in reply to ivovic

Sorry, @garthk, you’re looking for some sort of coherent logic relating to how the Leek of Wikies works? Yeah good luck with that.

via TweetDeck in reply to garthk

@R_Chirgwin Yeah, there’s going to be so much bullshit coming out labelled “I found this in ”. Massive disinfo ops under way.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Would someone be so kind as to fact-check these tweets for me? I’m busy drinking wine. twitter.com/SwiftOnSecurit…

via TweetDeck

@dobes There’s no point arguing against these arsehats. You know that.

@jeffsonstein That’s cool. :) But remember, I live in a country with a functioning health system for all citizens. :P

@jeffsonstein I know how to do this shit. I was in the Boy Scouts. Well, Venturers (Senior Scouts).

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein I just did a botchy job, but I’ve got modern antibacterial dressings etc the A&E gave me. I’ll get a clinic to do it Monday.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Yeah, knowing that, and given I was near a hospital, I got the A&E crew to sort it.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein There’s a few more gazes elsewhere — hands and knees of course — and some bruises, but I just needed help dressing that graze.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Not really. It’s that I tripped and fell onto the road last night, so I’m a bit grazed up. Annoying more than painful.

I assume I stil have my @utslibrary login, but I’m not at all skilled in researching for academic citations. I’m only a pretend academic.

And I’m told that this phase shift can happen fast as it crosses the tipping point. (He says, mixing metaphors like a boss.)

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

This is how you get sudden shifts like the collapse of support for a leader, or the surge in support for someone radically different.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I’m told the social mechanism is that when silent people feel there’s enough support, they go public with their views. That enables others.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

People are aligned mostly in one direction, or unaligned. But once the force reaches a certain point, they flip and align a different way.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I’ve seen research suggesting that shifts in political opinion are like magnetic domains in a piece of iron. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magnetic_…
