It is now undeniable that spies worldwide exploit the credulity of journalists to conceal their violation of human rights. This century will teach a harsh lesson: While terrorism is no existential threat to democracy, our political deference to intelligence agencies might be. https://t.co/duQBFWBa9w
First they laugh at you, then they fight you, then... they admit you were right all along and maybe shouldn't have been violating everyone's rights in the first place? https://t.co/Q0acQCEf6s
The weakness of the US charge against Assange is shocking. The allegation he tried (and failed?) to help crack a password during their world-famous reporting has been public for nearly a decade: it is the count Obama's DOJ refused to charge, saying it endangered journalism. https://t.co/xdTQ8xauB0
And there it is. https://t.co/jEhIRM0Sj4

I see few covering the rumors of Ecuador's intention to unilaterally revoke Julian Assange's asylum refer to the formal rulings of the United Nations. Regardless of what you think of the man as a person, if you believe in human rights law, this matters. https://t.co/ctKci2ElVg https://t.co/1bYoHCz8iA
Why do you suppose the Foreign Minister of Ecuador would choose today of all days to start tweeting about mechanisms for unilaterally revoking asylum claims? https://t.co/RS8xPBwZMJ
We have done little to help the largest voting bloc keep pace as digital society evolves. As a result, “on average, users over 65 [on Facebook] shared nearly seven times as many articles from fake news domains as the youngest age group.” https://t.co/1EyVsV1toA
This thread is a very good summary of why @Facebook, which famously makes its fortunes by exploiting the public in ways that are intentionally designed to be as close to criminal as possible, is suddenly calling for new "privacy" laws. https://t.co/rjJDbo7ezO
Merci à tous ceux qui, au Canada et dans le monde entier, ont rendu cela possible. Après tant d'années, la première des familles qui m'a aidé est libre et a un avenir. Mais le travail n'est pas fini - avec la solidarité et la compassion, le Canada peut tous les sauver. https://t.co/S7gaKT1ueQ
