‘People were going to die’: Former Twitter employee on flagging potential Jan. 6 violence

The House Select Committee investigating January 6 heard testimony from a former Twitter employee who says they begged the social media platform to do something about potential violence connected to former President Dondald Trump's election lies.

Twitter spokesperson Jessica Herrera-Flanigan responded, "Leading up to and following the election, we deployed numerous policy and product interventions to protect the public conversation. We declared the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers violent extremist groups in 2018 and 2020 respectively, and permanently suspended accounts associated with the organizations under our violent organizations policy, as well as many of the organizers of the attack for violations of our policies." #CNN #News

  2. As you can see we are already in July and I feel for those who would allow the market dynamism to determine when to trade or not are either new in space or probably just naïve, the sphere have seen far worse times than this, i always enlighten traders to continue to make good use of the dip and pump even acquiring more equities towards trading sessions, I’d say that more emphasis should be put into trading since it is way profitable than hodling.. Tradlng went smooth for me as I was able to raise 6.3BTC when I started at 2.5BTC in just few weeks of implementing trades with signals and insights from Leonard Yeoh. Would advise y’all to trade your asset rather than hodl for a future you aren’t sure about……

    1. Sincerely speaking. I will continue to trade and stick to Mr,Mason daily signals and guides as long as it works well for me.

    2. this is exactly what Big time investors is talking about, not just you. key thing here is to always trades with a good strategy even if the price goes up or down.

    3. Mason Kwon daily signal is top-rated and one of the best you could get when it comes to trading crypto.. bitcoin to the moon

    1. @David Brown Was that those Russian guys I watched dropping off all the ballots in 2,000 mules?

  3. *We won with poorly educated, I love the poorly educated!*
    – Trump, 2016
    Trump supporters: i aint no what that means but make america grate agen!!1!

  4. I am glad that the Committee was able to identify the GQP currently sitting in the House and the Senate who were involved in planning the attempted coup and hope that the DOJ will ENFORCE THE CONSTITUTIONAL Amendment 14 Section 3 and expel and prosecute them.

  5. They all talked big, held their tantrums. They chose to believe what made them feel good about their failed lives. They acted out then ran and hid. They came to realize the people with power used them and they were the ones who would suffer the consequences, not the people with power who used their fears and anger.

  6. Ex-#45 gathered his accomplises together to get his coup plan together. All of these people (Republicans) knew what was going to happen yet none of them did anything to stop it (were they hoping/thinking it would be a successful coup).

  7. The more Info that comes out of these hearings the scarier it gets. Those people were literally brainwashed & ready to hurt people 🥺

  8. Couldn’t the Twitter employees call the Washington DC police department the night before and show them the tweets not that it’s on them to do that, but I would’ve tried to get in touch with some agency

    1. @Lydia B Well done imagine if millions more with your integrity did it. Perhaps people wouldn’t have died.

  9. I am so disappointed in Twitter! It’s so horrible to know that they could have done something to help keep our democracy safe and chose not to! They bare some responsibility to everyone that got hurt and everyone who died!

    1. The companies that built the platforms aren’t keen on being responsible, they just want to be profitable.

  10. So one question is when many of us saw this potential violence, many in government, where were the FBI and other security forces? The lack of that was so obvious and the failure of so many to speak out loudly leading up to this event, including those now testifying. May there be justice and change as a result of what is emerging.

  11. A show trial is a public trial in which the judicial authorities have already determined the guilt or innocence of the defendant. The actual trial has as its only goal the presentation of both the accusation and the verdict to the public so they will serve as both an impressive example and a warning to other would-be dissidents or transgressors.[2]

    Show trials tend to be retributive rather than corrective and they are also conducted for propagandistic purposes.[3] When aimed at individuals on the basis of protected classes or characteristics, such trials are examples of political persecution. The term was first recorded in 1928.[4]
