@elliot grats. kinda wish I could feel famous with end-the-stigma.com. But I do feel famous by becoming part of prostasia’s social media team…so I guess it works out.

We’re pleased that Apple has come out with an Android app called Tracker Detect that addresses some serious threats to the privacy and safety of stalker victims. But it is not enough. Apple and Google can do more to protect users against physical trackers. eff.org/deeplinks/2021/12/appl

I don’t know who needs to hear this but…

Privacy isn’t:

- A premium feature
- A setting you must configure
- About having something to hide

Privacy is:

- A basic human right.

“I’m pretty excited to announce that I’m a new Social Media volunteer for @ProstasiaInc. I’ve always felt kinda bad that I can’t afford to support them financially. So being given this opportunity to help & support them in a different way is pretty cool!

We generate a troubling amount of personal data by interacting with the digital world in simple, necessary ways.

There are a lot of great ways to mitigate this — start by not buying your baby a smart watch 🙃



Apple is slowly boiling frogs on client-side scanning.

They got a backlash when they announced everything they were planning all at once so now they’re drip feeding it, hoping you won’t notice.

If you had told me “Apple is just the same as Google on privacy” six years ago, you would have been wrong because they were incomparably better (ar.al/notes/apple-vs-google-on).

If you were to tell me the same thing today, you would still be wrong. Because when they implement client-side scanning, they will actually be worse (ar.al/2021/08/08/apple-is-tryi).

Never forget: No trillion-dollar corporation is your friend.

To take your privacy to the next level, Session onion-routes all of your data.

But what does that mean exactly? And why is Session the only private messaging app that can onion-route high quality voice and video calls?

I will defend a rapist over a cop because 1) I am a Marxist and from a class standpoint, people who commit rape are usually members of the underclass whose crimes are often the product of broader systemic issues while cops are protectors of the bourgeois state and 2) people who commit genuine rapes are overwhelmingly likely to later see their actions as wrong versus cops who don't usually reform themselves

@nate_river controversional opinion. I don’t like the lgbt community. It started out as a civil rights movement (which is good), but over time it transformed into a cult. Also, the fact that a lot of members of the lgbt community try to act like lgbt owns or invented the “concept of [human] sexuality” just rubs me the wrong way. Cuz like human sexuality existed long before the lgbt movement did (and human sexuality will continue to exist long after the lgbt movement is gone)

@freemo Become an advocate for the prevention of child sexual abuse. I've gotten Twitter banned so many times because thanks to FOSTA if you even talk about anything related to the word 'sex' you get censored. Not only is that determinetal for sex workers that get deplatformed. But it's also determinental because sex education information & sexual abuse prevention information gets removed :(

@elliot Nice. I was following probably half (or slightly more than half) of them. Just followed the rest (and retweeted all those tweets)

I wish Prostasia’s Twitter account was verified. I mean, they definitely deserve verification

Also, imagine how mad the ignorant haters would be if they got verified 😂

@Raccoondude I noticed that Allyn Walker deleted their twitter account (likely due to all the harassment).

Hopefully they re-enable their account when the heat dies down!

@freedcreative I dunno who needs to hear this but…

not everything has to be crypto 🤦‍♀️
